PANDEMIC _SPACE

Digital studio & performance gallery opening soon in central Wollongong. Dedicated to promoting the vast array of creative talent around the Illawarra region, the focus is on experimental and innovative practice.

A New Audiences initiative in collaboration with Renew Wollongong, we are inviting expressions of interest from artists seeking a residency at the space when it opens in the coming months. Artists working in the following fields are encouraged to apply:

  • DIGITAL MEDIA: sound design, video production
  • PERFORMANCE: live art, durational or immersive works
  • INSTALLATION: interactive sculptural art

This is not your traditional gallery space, although open to all manner of artmaking, the focus will be on innovative use of media within the parameters of the exhibition space.

Residents will be required to occupy the space throughout and deliver a project within a set timeframe over the course of their occupancy (around two weeks).

To express your interest in the residency program please send a short introduction about your self and one-page project pitch outlining the basic idea and materials/ support required to produce it to newaudiences [at] bigpond [dot] com.
