We want you!
Watch This Space is an Artist Run Initiative based in Alice Springs, NT. This year we celebrate operating for 21 years! We are well into our Golden Years and to mark this occasion we are hosting an artist camp! 4 days and 4 nights in the desert for artists of all types and disciplines.
Watch This Space aims to create a skills-share environment where artists can meet, share ideas skills, learn new skills, collaborate, marinate in their ideas, develop their appreciation for the environment and culture of Central Australia, and have a fun time! Watch This Space has had a rich history of Art Camps, so get involved.
Please Contact Us if you have any enquiries. The sooner the better!
Dates for Camp
Wednesday 3rd – Sunday 7th of June 2015
A private property out on the Golden Mile, 30km west of Alice Springs along the West MacDonnell Range.
We are lucky to be camping on the property of one of Mpartwe’s (Alice Springs) Traditional Custodians and the land should be treated with respect and consideration throughout the duration of the camp.
What will happen out there?
Cross-Pollination. Art-Making. Skills-Sharing. Sleeping under the stars.
20-30 artists will be invited to bring their ideas for workshops, activities, art-pieces, performances, collaborations, or exercises and share their skills and ideas over 4 days.
What kind of activities can I propose?
Anything. Nothing is too wacky. In the past Watch This Space has seen astrological yoga, movies screenings, en plein air painting, outdoor printing workshops and pit-fired pottery…
What do I need to bring?
The camp will be fully catered by a bush kitchen and cook. Campers are expected to pitch in and help where they can.
You will need to arrange your own bedding for a campout ie: swag or tent. Let us know if this is a problem and we may be able to help.
Pack suitable clothing for camping in the bush during winter in the desert. ie: good boots for walking, a warm jacket etc.
Materials for the activity you will be sharing (Let us know details of this in the application and we may be able to assist with materials).
