CTRL+ALT+DEL

Curated by Conscious Mic

Presented by Conscious Mic and Metro Arts

This group art exhibition features artists who identify as First Nations, Pasifika and/or culturally and linguistically diverse.

Synonymous with the computer system command pressed by a user to terminate an application and shut down the operating system, Ctrl+Alt+Del is a multidisciplinary arts event formed to reboot and reclaim arts and cultural spaces in a white colonial landscape.

Ctrl+Alt+Del showcases vibrant visual art, spoken word, storytelling, music, dance, and cultural ceremony. Created by Conscious Mic in 2018, Ctrl+Alt+Del is an arts and cultural event that has had multiple iterations.

 

Please note: In line with Queensland Health regulations, all patrons and visitors at Metro Arts will be required to be fully vaccinated. Proof must be presented on entry to venue staff. Find out more here.

THE ARTISTS

Conscious Mic
Conscious Mic is a Pasifika led collective of artists, creative producers, and cultural practitioners who focus on forward thinking cultural art, sound, and storytelling. We connect the artists we work with to their communities, creating strong networks that involve First Nations, Pasifika, and/or CALD artists in every level of engagement. We curate art exhibitions and events that empower artists to create authentic work, and forge pathways for their professional growth in an industry that has traditionally marginalised their voices. Driving social change through creating spaces for cross-solidarity between First Nations, Pasifika, and or/CALD artists, as well with those of the LGBTQI+ community and people with disabilities, Conscious Mic confronts and dismantles the significant barriers these communities face as they strive to share their art at a professional level. We amplify their voices from within arts and cultural spaces, which they have traditionally found challenging to gain access to, and in doing so, deliver unique experiences for audiences, while growing and strengthening the capacity of our community.

Key curators are Bindimu, Lisa Viliamu Jameson, Timothy Harm and Serge Ah-Wong.
