“We’re happy to share the final short film in this HOME – Noli Timere series, a collective artistic response to our lives in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope these films have brought you joy, laughter, and encouragement but we equally recognise the vulnerability in the many poignant, emotive, and touching messages that have been conveyed through these short pieces. Lockdown has looked different for everyone, but we hope that you’ve been able to relate even just to a moment in one of these films, and have ultimately found hope and inspiration for the days that lie ahead.

We are grateful to ALL the artists that contributed to the making of these films. Whilst we find our own paths through the pandemic, I think that it is vital to remember that creative expression, in whatever form, is not just essential, it is the very essence of human existence.

Noli Timere.” - Simon Magill, MAC Creative Director
