Lockdowns have paused live performance, but that hasn’t stopped the City of Melbourne from helping the arts scene. The Flash Forward program has commissioned and linked 40 music acts with 40 contemporary visual artists, who will bring their work to 40 Melbourne laneways.
Jeff McCann is a Sydney/Gadigal based creative who works in both the visual and performing arts. His practise is a sustainability-focused approach that includes using second hand materials, repurposing old collateral from previous projects to make new work and/or considering the afterlife of the work he makes. He was inspired by childhood creativity and nostalgia, world building, games and the natural environment. Jeff specialises in community engagement projects, public art, workshops and education, collaborations, illustration, props and fashion. His artistic practice strives to create inclusive works that encourage audience involvement and fun. www.jeffmccann.com.au/fashion
