Blak LAB Expressions of Interest Now Open (Expired)

Blak LAB Expressions of Interest Now Open

Presented by APAM in partnership with Asia TOPA

Since 2013, Asia TOPA LABs have been the genesis for sensational international collaborations between artists. For 2020, the Asia TOPA LAB evolves to Blak LAB; a lab curated and led by Australia’s First Nation artists and cultural leaders in a new partnership between Asia TOPA, APAM, and the APAM First Nations Lead, ILBIJERRI Theatre Company.

Blak LAB invests in future works through artist-to-artist collaborations between First Nations people across Australia and the Asia-Pacific. Curated by APAM’s First Nations Advisory Group, and facilitated by two senior First Nations artists, Blak LAB is part of a growing and celebrated movement of international First-Nations-led creative incubators.

Artists, are you interested in participating? Expressions of interest are now open! Australian First Nations artists are invited to propose ideas for exploration in Blak LAB in collaboration with artists from the Asia-Pacific region who identify as Indigenous. You may wish to propose a specific collaborator you already have a relationship with, or you may ask for assistance in connecting with artists relevant to your idea. At this EOI stage the focus is on rich and exciting concepts and artistic pairings.

Please Read the Information Sheet for all the details.

EOIs close midnight (AEST) on Sun 13 Oct 2019.
