A-Maze Artists' Group is woman-led and includes practitioners of all ages & diverse cultural backgrounds with a wide range of artistic and technical skills. The collaboration grew out of a particular historical moment, the Covid-19 pandemic. The crisis showed us how interconnected we all are and how, if we can just change one thing in our lives, it has an impact on everything else. Fion Gunn initiated this group in March 2020.
Our areas of enquiry and inspiration include: displacement, migration, realisation of virtual worlds through emerging digital tools and reaching out to audience-participants. We collaborate using online regular weekly meetings as we design and build our virtual artists' space. We discuss the concepts, aesthetic, design, technical tools, production management and funding of the project.
