WOMADelaide joins forces with SITUATE Arts in Festivals

23 January 2014

WOMADelaide has joined forces with Salamanca Arts Centre to present SITUATE Art in Festivals, an exciting new national program designed to support outstanding Early Career Artists to develop experimental site-related artworks for diverse festival environments.  The professional development program includes a residential Artist Laboratory (Arts Lab), led by national and international ‘provocateurs’, to develop and test ideas, followed by a mentoring program with experienced production staff to help realise these ideas, and a commissioning phase to facilitate the presentation and touring of the new work to the partnering festivals. The other festivals involved are Darwin Festival (NT), DARK MOFO and MONA FOMA (Hobart), Fringe World (Perth) and Vryfestival (South Africa).  As a result of the inaugural Arts Lab held in 2013, WOMADelaide will be presenting the work of a SITUATE artist at its March 2015 festival.  More details about the artist will be revealed when the 2015 program is announced in October.  For more details about SITUATE see
