ADHOCRACY OPENING > 4-6pm Friday 31st August
Immerse yourself in Ian Sinclair and Rachael Guinness’ tongue-in-cheek participatory research about the future of work; hear some short, shiny provocations for the weekend; and be part of a special performance-ceremony by Emily Johnson and her First Nations and non-Indigenous collaborators.
Send off winter with some warming Vitals hospitality, including complimentary mulled wine, for the opening of Adhocracy 2018
VITAL THREADS > 3-5pm Saturday 1st September
Join the Adhocracy 2018 participating artists in critical conversations about art-making in Australia and key themes that span their works this year. This important two-hour session will address issues such as: latest developments in First Nations arts practices; how and why non-Indigenous artists might explore colonialism, whiteness, and inertia; what a saturation of online content means for artists; the value of utopianism and how artists engage in speculating about the future.
Panels, yarns and round tables with our 2018 artists. Please note 3pm start.
YOUR NEXT WORK > 4-5pm Sunday 2nd September
Are you planning your next project? Are you interested in knowing about opportunities around Australia for artists? This workshop introduces two national development-to-presentation opportunities, focused towards emerging artists, and also discusses the key steps to getting your new work off the ground.
Presented by Erica McCalman (Next Wave) and Roslyn Helper (Underbelly Arts)
