SIGNATURE WORKS: STORY INNOVATION LAB
ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER SIGNATURE
WORKS STORY INNOVATION LAB 2016
Applications close: 14 February 2016
Event Dates: The four day lab will take place 29 April–2 May 2016
Location: Sydney, Australia
About the opportunity
The Innovation Lab will focus on exploring new Indigenous story ideas in collaboration
with some 30 Indigenous artistic and creative professionals from across all artforms.
Signature Works: Story Innovation Lab will challenge the orthodoxy of how art work is
constructed while facilitating the opportunity for artists to be truly cross artform and take
old forms to new levels.
The evolution of the Australian arts canon relies on the ability of artists to voice the
dynamism of the times they are immersed in; and to be supported to realise that vision
through a range of platforms that broaden the reach for their creativity.
The Innovation Lab will offer an entirely Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander space. It will
be safe and conducive for collaboration between Indigenous artists, creative talents,
producers and content commissioners. It is a unique opportunity for First Nations arts
professionals to collaboratively create new ideas and concepts for works that will push
forward sector thinking and understanding of signature works. The process will ensure
that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts sector define what stories will go on to
become Indigenous signature works.
This activity hopes to create a process that enables the Australia Council, the arts sector
and industry to work in new ways with deeper understanding about how to engage with
Indigenous arts and its intersection with the national and international arts landscape.
