2005 :: Create Space
In 2005 ANAT partnered with the City of Melbourne’s Art House program to hold ANAT’s New Media Lab 2005 Create_Space in North Melbourne’s newly refurbished Meat Market. This intensive two-week workshop for Australian new media arts practitioners brought participants together to network, develop skills and seed new projects.
With a focus on collaboration, exchange and the investigation of the potential and possibilities of emerging media, Create_Space was a unique opportunity for new media artists. It aimed to provide not only access to technology and software, but also a space for creative dialogue, experimentation and exchange, with an emphasis on critical engagement with new technologies, rather than just training in their use.
Australian and international expert facilitators Adam Nash (AUS), Jonah Bruckner-Cohen (USA) and Katherine Moriwaki (USA) were engaged to work closely with Create_Space’s participants, to facilitate development of skills and project ideas.
