PAST

WHAT WE DO

Cross-cultural, community minded, collaborative and interdisciplinary practice is at the heart of the experiences we curate, initiatives we create and workshops we facilitate. 

 

 By engaging with local & international artists and audiences across creative disciplines, the work we do can be in contact with larger intersecting communities and creates points of connection. As we consider the similarities and differences across disciplines we learn there are ways our works can complement and learn from one another.

We work to counter barriers to access by making all of our workshops + events + initiatives :

  • Free/as close to free as possible

  • Close to public transport

  • As culturally safe as we possibly can, we acknowledge that in many ways it's near impossible to make a space completely culturally safe given the varied experiences and understanding of the word "culture"

FEB - MARCH 2020

IRREGULAR FIT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT @ AAW

SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE - SYDNEY, AU

Irregular Fit is working collaboratively with the All About Women (AAW), Sydney Opera House programming team to evaluate current engagement practices and create a strategy that centres safer and inclusive participation of First Nations, Bla(c)k and POC (persons of colour) within All About Women.

  

Due to barriers to access research demonstrates that statistically First Nations , Bla©k and POC community members don’t engage with arts and cultural programming when compared to white counterparts . ​

 

One of Irregular Fit’s core values is to actively engage and support our local arts communities by creating and facilitating artistic experiences that enrich lives as well as support social, mental and economic wellbeing. We believe in a multi-faceted, meaningful, person focused approach to community engagement.

Irregular Fit Community Engagement Specialists:

  • Ayebatonye Abrakasa

  • Georgia Mokak
