Synopsis

DURATION: 24 MINUTES

Creativism is a female host-based series and the people interviewed in each of the initial 6 episodes are highly sought after Australian creatives, leaders in their field and known for their extraordinary talent, but nobody really knows much about the people or the practice behind the work of these humble creators…until now! Enter Beccy Iland, an actress with a knack for making people feel at ease in front of the camera, as she explores their worlds, their struggle between public and private life, their family pressures, and the high impact their cultural heritage has had on each of them. Their appeal is far reaching around the globe. The subjects in Creativism reflect our Australian cultural identity, they are a vastly multi-cultural bunch of Australians: Chinese, Greek, Lebanese, Croatian, New Zealand, Filipino, Serbian, Macedonian. Each of their heritages tell a story - drama, love, family pressure, expectations and ultimately success. It is an organic, honest series, full of hope.

Issue Summary

A short summary of the issue the documentary is addressing

Educating youth on the reality of pursuing a creative career in Australia, while also inspiring hope for their artistic futures. Creativism seeks to entertain, but is also a very genuine, organic delve into the world of some of Australia’s most talented and successful creatives.

Impact

Creativism aims to give people the confidence to try and follow their creative dreams, and to explore their creativity in times of need, as a form of therapy and healing, regardless of their unique obstacles and challenges. Especially now in the times of Covid when people are feeling isolated and blocked, Creativism shows how to access parts within yourself required to forge ahead with positivity and hope.

Stakeholders

How will partnerships with this project help inform the project development?

Not really! I definitely have mentors who are highly successful at bringing awareness through social media to their causes. And I have access to wonderful creatives to be interviewed for the series.

Audience Engagement and Social Impact

What actions does this project hope for its viewers after seeing this film?

Hosting screenings, buying art, implementing arts programmes at schools that are fun but also realistic in terms of managing expectations of young Australians. Showing support through social media.

Measurement and Evaluation

What is the projects indicators for success?

Key indirctaors would be increased awareness around the artist I’m uncovering, funding for everyone who has worked on this programme already for a long time now, supporting their endeavours. Media about the project and a larger audience for the show. A dedicated home base for the documentary - be it a tv channel or an online platform. Opportunity to extend the ideas of creativism, so being invited to give talks/interviews, making the private worlds more public. Using art as therapy is so important so I'd like to see this idea implemented in schools and with adults too.
