ART WORKS is a program of residencies and creative workshops, designed to provide a city-based platform for artists to pursue new ways of working and engaging with audiences. A new initiative delivered by Guildhouse in partnership with the City of Adelaide at the Minor Works Building.
The Minor Works Building is located just off Stamford Court between Sturt Street and Wright Street and sits within the Ergo Apartments development. The two-storey building is owned by City of Adelaide and was originally part of the Council’s old Sturt Street Depot, a warehouse built for the City Engineer’s Department in 1939.
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Two residency opportunities for artists with a socially-engaged practice or concept to foreground social issues and collaboration with engaged communities that explore at least one key element of key strategic directions identified in the City of Adelaide’s Strategic Plan to culminate in an exhibition, demonstration, performance or event.
WRITER IN RESIDENCE
The writer will respond to this new site of cultural activity; the space, ideas, engaged communities, the artists, their process and the work.. The resulting work will document the projects undertaken and enable storytelling.
