No Longer on Mute was developed during COVID-19 lockdowns in 2021 as a way of giving a voice to young people living in the City of Greater Bendigo. The title comes from the familiar experience of talking while being in an online forum, but finding that the microphone was still on mute.

On display are the short written (50 words or less) works of 93 young people, aged from 3 to 25.

BV&E acknowledges the Dja Dja Wurrung and Taungurung Peoples as the traditional custodians of the lands where our venues stand and where we share stories through art and culture.

We acknowledge and pay respect to their Elders past present and emerging.
