beingNOWhere Creative Lab

About this opportunity

The human ecology of the Gold Coast is constantly changing. As of 2011 28% of us were born overseas, and 10% of us speak a language other than English at home. “Where are you from?” is a question that most of us have asked, or been asked. Answers don’t always come easily, but still we are curious.

The beingNOWhere Creative Lab offers artists the opportunity to develop their creative practice while collaborating on a new project over a period of six weeks. Participants are undertaking activities as a group, including an intensive weekend that includes training in cultural awareness and collaboration, networking and skills sharing, creative visioning, and project planning. Each partnership works with the Project Officer and Project Facilitator to arrange one of three weekly ‘socials’ for all program participants. These socials will provide an opportunity to check in about their project’s progress, share insights from their collaborative process, strengthen their connections to other participants, and share ideas and plan for a showcase event to close the program.
