Time_Place_Space3 was the third laboratory of a five-year initiative that aims to challenge, invigorate and strengthen hybrid arts practice in Australia.
Time_Place_Space seeded new collaborations and productions with the potential to tour nationally and internationally, built new networks of artists, curators and presenters, broadened and diversified audiences, and established an international reputation for Australian artists working in this field. The first two Time_Place_Space laboratories were held at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW with the third laboratory staged at AIT Arts Adelaide.
“Artists from diverse cultural, geographic and artform backgrounds are provided with an environment where rigorous exploration and experimentation can take place over a solid, uninterrupted period of time—not only is this rare but critical in looking to the future of arts practice in this country” comments New Media Arts Board Chair Mr Michael Snelling.
