RAD Narrative for Modifyre 2019




Last year, the Modifyre RAD (Rapid Art Deployment) team brought you the Bug Ball, the competition to win the Bug Princesses’ hand in marriage, her kidnapping, the overthrow of the monarchy, and the liberation of the Home Brew.


This year, in celebration of everything floral and faunal, they’re conducting a mass commitment ceremony to the earth, complete with Reception! By treating the earth as our lover, rather than our mother, who knows what changes may arise…the relationship's been pretty toxic and non-consensual the last little bit.

Check out this video by RAD member Sophie to get excited. 

Dress Code: Bug-day Best! Or something to show your earthly devotion…

BURN Arts, Inc and the Modifyre Community wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country
upon which Modifyre takes place, the Bigambul and Kambuwal Peoples.  

 

We also wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country upon which we live, learn and work, the Jagera and Turrbal Peoples.
We honour their Ancestors and pay our deepest respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.  

 

We extend that respect to all First Nations People, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. We honour and respect their continued cultural and spiritual relationship
to their Traditional Lands, Seas and Waters and recognise their unique and valuable contribution to society.  

 

Sovereignty was never ceded.
