SITUATE: Art in Festivals

SITUATE: Art in Festivals

SITUATE Art in Festivals is presenting an exciting opportunity for Early Career Artists  and creative practitioners to participate in an intensive interdisciplinary residency to push boundaries, take creative risks and develop ideas for artworks that respond to a variety of festival sites and audiences.

SITUATE Arts Lab will take place over 15 days from 21 June – 5 July 2013 at Salamanca Arts Centre in Hobart alongside the new Dark MOFO festival. It will also involve an intensive design studio held at the Far South Wilderness Lodge on Tasmania’s south-eastern tip.

Up to 15 Artists from across Australia will participate in the Lab, facilitated by up to 10 leading national and international artists and curators (provocateurs) supported by specialist production staff. The opportunity is open to creative practitioners working in the visual arts, design, architecture, fashion, digital media, installation, community arts, live art, performance and other creative pursuits.

The process is designed to support the development of a wide range of artworks that provide not just a “wow” factor but seek to connect with audiences across diverse festival environments. The emphasis is on innovation, risk taking, artistic integrity and the creation of new ideas.
