Open Space is an evolved company. We facilitate and create contemporary performance, hybrid media art, outdoor spectacle and intimate anti-spectacle, serving artists and non-artists from Adelaide and abroad. Through the exploration and creation of new contemporary art practice, Open Space connects and engages with displaced, yet impassioned communities.
Open Space is operated by a small team of dedicated arts professionals. A light, responsive and flexible organisation championed by a board of director's with a wealth of experience across the not-for profit and arts sector.
Open Space creates and facilitates contemporary performance, hybrid media and interdisciplinary artworks, nurturing projects from seed, through gestation, creation and into touring.
As a company with a long history of working with a wide range of artists Open Space has over time grown its own creative community. We house a team of Artistic Associates, working on core Open Space projects and creating their own work inside the organisation's umbrella. Our artists and collaborators are diverse in their practice and are a part of a long history of amazing people dedicated to strengthening and sustaining a company working between-and-beyond-the-usual-spaces and media.
Open Space is committed to working with artists and communities both nationally and internationally. It is our intention to open a critical dialogue to explore contemporary issues and awaken mechanisms that allow for exciting creations through the combination and manipulation of new and existing art forms. We are bold, experimental, at the forefront of artistic practice, and aim to make art that delights, enthrals, and promotes a sense of awe. We invite you to shape it with us: our audience, our artists and our community.
