Adhocracy 2023

National hothouse for new art
Presented by Vitalstatistix

Adhocracy is Vitalstatistix’s annual national hothouse, supporting the creative development and critical discussion of experimental, multidisciplinary arts projects. 

Artists from around Australia, selected through a national call, spend four days and nights in a studio environment developing new work which can span theatre, live art, dance, sound, installation, social practice, visual art and more. 

Participating artists experiment with ideas and artforms, as well as how audiences experience their works. A public program, including showings, talks, audience experiments and other offerings, is presented over three evenings.

In 2023, three opportunities will be offered for artists: our general callout, with local and Australia-wide proposals encouraged; and two opportunities for South Australian creatives, our Early Career Curator paid internship, and the annual Hart’s Mill residency. 

Call for applications: Closes MAY 22.
