Festival Lab is an opportunity for ten emerging practitioners to get stuck into the big ideas in the Festival program, and to reflect on their own artistic practice within the context of our local and international arts environment.
An intensive program of events is created, responding to the Festival program and opportunities that arise to engage with artistic companies and visitors. This may include performances, discussions, or visits to closed sets or rehearsals.
Lab participants will also be invited to connect with the Festival team and key arts industry, providing insight into way a Festival is programmed and the context in which it operates.
Importantly, the Lab creates an opportunity to find community in the cohort itself, creating relationships with artists and practitioners from other disciplines, over an intensive period of discussion and discovery.
There are no outcomes associated with the Lab. This is an invitation to make space for contemplation and inquiry, and a vehicle for connecting with artists working in different ways – but not a skills development workshop.
Applicants are encouraged to consider how they could benefit from participation in the program before applying. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss if in doubt.
