HyPe supports the creation of innovative, contemporary hybrid performance in Tasmania by supporting artists to take conceptual leaps and to challenge the existing perceptions of traditional performance.
HyPe 2017-2020 will invest in artists’ practice, not just their projects. Independent Tasmanian artists will be selected and supported for a period of up to two years to develop their practice and share their work as it evolves. They will be supported with artist fees, space and production support. SAC recognises that independent artists operate in a challenging environment where new artists and projects are the least likely to receive support, the least able to access advocacy channels, but critical to a vibrant and innovative cultural life.
Independent arts are where innovators pursue their practices and propel our creativity forward, inspiring others and encouraging audiences to dispel preconceptions. Support of independent artists is vital to a healthy arts ecosystem.
We will be selecting artists that are highly connected with their sector, producing excellent work and committed to innovation. The HyPe Program will continue to strengthen and grow the reach of independent and experimental arts and the cultural sector in Tasmania.
