Deep Space 2018
Announcement of our collaborative artist's residency, The SPACE Programme for 2018
Since 2008, The Performance Corporation has run an international multi-disciplinary residency exploring the process of cross artform collaboration called the SPACE Programme. The programme has been one where artists get a rare opportunity to innovate and experiment in a dynamic but risk-free environment.
Since its inception in 2008 over 60 artists have benefitted from the programme and each year’s outcome has been vastly different due to the hugely varied alignments of artforms, artists and interrogations involved.
This year, we are using the experience and expertise gathered since 2008 to focus more specifically on the intersection of arts and technology. There is an urgent need to understand exactly how collaborations in this field can be best achieved. So we are creating a residency space exclusively for entrepenurial, innovative snd dynamic ceatives from the arts and technology worlds, with a range of different expertise and work processes.
The takeaway will include new expertise and understanding of the different ecologies we are all part of, a deeper knowledge of different work practices as well as new connections. It will create for all participants stronger starting points from which to initiate and facilitate collaboration, innovation and new idea generation.
