Young people in the Victorian community have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 due to loss of casual employment, disruption to schooling, and few opportunities to socialise with peers.
As most of our community transitioned into the online world, what was missing was a connection, embodiment, and tactile experiences. This collective reflection allowed for the City of Port Phillip's 2020 FReeZA Committee, named 'Vision FReeZA', to combine the tactile sensation and promotion of emerging artists into a zine - a small self-published magazine.
'Vision' has been thoughtfully constructed in hope to bring some of the experiences that have been missing most of the year: connection, art, dance, language, culture, voice, humour and creativity.
