Project: Participation in a performing arts internship program

Mira Chorik is a songwriter who makes art. Her work explores loss and meaning-making through music, community performances and projects, experimental collaborations and site-specific installations. Using meaningful conversation that shifts perspectives, Chorik facilitates group workshops and craft live performance spaces that invite participation and connect audiences. Her work aims to create a sense of emotional intimacy. Following a career in traditional Chinese medicine, group facilitation, and yoga and meditation teaching, Chorik completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Honours) at Charles Darwin University. Her research interests include art and music as the temple, melancholy, and art-making as a practice of belonging. Residencies and performances include Caboolture Hub Studio residency, Old Lock Up residency, Project 24 Residency, Anywhere Festival, and Woodford Folk Festival. Chorik also hosts the Sunshine Coast Songwriters Roundtable, a supportive space for songwriters to meet and hone the art of storytelling with words and music.

Mira Chorik will undertake a five-month Creative Entrepreneur Internship program run by Brisbane-based theatre company, Zen Zen Zo. The program develops the talents, skills, and professional networks of ten emerging artists annually by working in small group settings, and through individual mentoring that supports each artist to take their career and work to the next level. This program has been running for 19 years and will develop Chorik’s skills in a range of fields: arts leadership, directing, producing, acting, physical theatre, marketing, grant writing, administration, finance, sports psychology, physical and mental wellbeing, and Indigenous knowledge. The program aims to promote long-term career sustainability by building resilience and financial and business literacy; to increase the quality of participants’ creative work; and to build a strong community of artists from diverse backgrounds and disciplines.
