Adhocracy is Vitalstatistix’s national hothouse, supporting the creative development of new experimental and multidisciplinary arts projects. Artists from around Australia join us to create and converse in one space (our beautiful, heritage-listed home, Waterside, in Port Adelaide) over the first weekend of Spring.
Adhocracy is a festival of ideas meets intense art camp meets magic house party. Get amongst some of Australia’s most exciting established and emerging makers of Australian contemporary culture, art, performance and commentary.
Our program of new works-in-development spans theatre, dance, live art, socially engaged practice, durational performance, radio broadcasting, video and installation. There are nine projects participating in Adhocracy this year, selected through national and state-wide callouts and a residency commissioning process.
Artists work in an open studio environment throughout Waterside, as well as at our two offsite locations this year, Hart’s Mill Flour Shed and artist-run initiative Fontanelle. They are all in the early stages of the process of making; they are experimenting with ideas and art forms, as well as how audiences experience their works. You can engage with the artists and their creative process through a public program of artist talks and work-in-progress showings.
