Research Background
“Time Place Space” (TPS) is a national research and development strategy for Australian artists seeking to invigorate artistic practice, be responsive to artists’ needs, develop networks, and address perceived gaps in artists’ development, as well as the broader issue of sustainability. This fifth two-week intensive residential laboratory took place at QUT’s Creative Industry Precinct, Brisbane and was strongly intercultural in focus.

Research Contribution
This immersive laboratory provided a dedicated space where participating artists engaged in a range of individual and collaborative exercises designed to extend their conceptual and practical skills base, as well as establishing a framework for dialogue and discussion. The complexities of intercultural and cross-artform engagement created rich terrain for creative research and experimentation, and participant and facilitator reports consistently articulated the benefits for their art practice. The curators also reflected on the five-year program of activity, and think towards the future. Discussions were held with Asialink and the Inter Arts Office of the Australia Council as to how this model might be transformed into a TPS Asian Australian exchange workshop.

Research Significance
An initiative of the New Media Arts Board (now the Inter-Arts Office) of the Australia Council, and supported by the Dance, Theatre and Music Boards, TPS is the outcome of a tender submitted by Performance Space and the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT) in January 2001. Substantial in-kind support: venue, technical and computer equipment, was provided by new site partner, QUT Creative Industries Precinct as well as Performance Space, Sydney.
