Time_Place_Space (TPS) is a national professional development strategy for Australian artists to explore new methodologies and practices in hybrid/interdisciplinary arts with an emphasis on performance. TPS is a two-week, intensive, residential laboratory, which Performance Space, Sydney have managed since its inception in 2002. The sixth laboratory took place at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane. It is an initiative of the New Media Arts Board (now the Inter Arts-Office) of the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government's arts funding and advisory body.
RESEARCH IMPACT STATEMENT
Curated by Sarah Miller, Teresa Crea and Fiona Winning, ‘Time_Place_Space’ (TPS), is a national, research and development strategy for Australian artists working with hybridity and performance. A two-week artists’ laboratory, TPS6 is an initiative of the Inter-Arts Office of the Australia Council and managed by Performance Space, Sydney. Originally planned as a five-year project (2001 – 06), TPS6 took place at QUT’s Creative Industry Precinct, Brisbane, 2009.
International Facilitators: IWAI Shigeaki (Japan), Arahmaiani Feisal (Indonesia) and TANG Fu Kuen (Singapore). Australian facilitators: Margie Medlin (NSW), Teresa Crea (SA) and Constantine Koukias (TAS).
The curators work on the development and structure of the laboratory to develop a model that is responsive to artists’ needs, and which takes advantage of facilitators’ expertise. They select facilitators and participants; develop the workshop’s framework and program; build strategies for support and delivery; and undertake project evaluation. For the first time, a number of observers comprising Australia Council staff and international delegates from Asia, observed a small part of the lab as part of a research process that may see the TPS model exported into the international arena.
TPS6 came into being as a direct consequence of the success and ongoing effects of the ‘Time_Place_Space’ initiative (2002 to 2006). Funded by the Australia Council and State Funding agencies, TPS6 also received substantial in-kind support from site partner, QUT Creative Industries and Performance Space, Sydney. Arts Queensland funded the visiting artists’ talks and international delegates undertook a public forum at Metro Arts, Brisbane.
