ABOUT PROPOSALS FOR NOVEL WAYS OF BEING

Proposals for Novel Ways of Being is a new local initiative by the visual arts community to present a series of exhibitions and programmes, both physical and online, as a united response to the changes brought about by COVID-19. Its title references an earlier name of the virus, i.e. '2019 Novel Coronavirus', which serves as a reminder that we need new ways of being as we grapple with a new reality brought about by this pandemic.

The key visual design for Proposals for Novel Ways of Being was inspired by the humble rubber band. The spirit of flexibility, adaptability and its binding qualities are depicted metaphorically in the outcome of the design. This key visual reflects the aspiration and most meaningful intention of the exhibition—which is to rally our community in bringing the arts back to local audiences whilst at the same time, signify the collaborative spirit across all partners for this show.
