WAKE UP: The School of Global Art: Down Under!

The School of Global Art extends its global outreach to sign up new class of international students, setting up our first Global Outreach campus in Melbourne, Australia.

This term also includes practical modules in Meditation for Artistic Inspiration and Art by Telephone/Google+ Hangouts. SGA:DU brings together artists, writers and academics from London, Berlin, LA, Tehran and Hong Kong with local Melbournite experts for a nine-day intensive programme.

Wake Up and Wait for the Sun to Rise Next Wave Festival 2012

Wake up and wait for the sun to rise…

500 methods for a new beginning

We’ve brought together 100 of Australia’s brightest young thinkers from all across the country to generate a brilliant mass of 500 methods, each imagining possibilities for a new beginning.

Now the methods are in the hands of 5 young and emerging artist collectives who will develop work that encourages us to imagine new possibilities for being together in the lead up to the Festival. The fruits of their labour will reside at our home base, Westspace. It’s an artist-led experiment so the outcomes are unknown but it’s fair to imagine parties, performances, dinners,  games, television broadcasts and much more!
