Time_Place_Space NOMAD (2016): Natimuk AU
A travelling laboratory for experimental artists.
Held on Wotjobaluk Country of the Wergeia Language Group during a hot December.
Time_Place_Space: Nomad is a national initiative that aims to challenge, invigorate and strengthen interdisciplinary and experimental arts practice in Australia, emphasising collaborative performance-making, site-specific practice and artistic resilience. In 2016, Time_Place_Space: Nomad is hosted by the local community at Natimuk in the Wimmera plains to test and re-imagine the artists' practice as adaptive and resilient, based in an understanding of place and country. Artists cook, eat and camp out together; exploring practice, networks and the potential for collaboration. Participants included Natalie Abbott, Rachael Sooji Kim, Asha Bee Abraham, Cissi Tsang, Kate Hill, Dan Koop, Selena de Carvalho, Ngioka Bunda-Heath, Baden Hitchcock, Sarah Aitken, Lorna Hannan, Jen Rae, Marnie Badham, Rob Bundle, and Dr. Sarah Jane Pell. TPSNomad 2016 was facilitated by: Emily Johnson, Sarah Rodigari, Vicki Couzens, Karen Therese, & Angharad Wynne-Jones with support from The Arts House, Melbourne team Tara Esworp and Luke Gleeson, Wotjobaluk Elder Ron Marks, City of Horsham Cultural Development Officer Jillian Pearce, Dr. Greg Pritchard and the community of Natimuk. Visitors included Brigitte Koch Muir. Time_Place_Space: Nomad is now an initiative of Arts House, City of Melbourne, developed in partnership with Performance Space and has been supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria. #tps16 #timeplacespacenomad @artshousemelb
