Rethinking Participation is a series of two x 2-day artist led think tanks, consultations, and responsive research gatherings that will explore new ways to collaborate and create site based participatory art projects in living-with-COVID environments.

14 established and emerging Adelaide based, regional and First Nations artists working across a diversity of arts practices (7 at each session) have been invited to reflect and respond to a series of three lead questions developed by the participants and OSCA in the lead up to the event.

  • How has pandemic-related conditions affected your practice?
  • What new ways of collaborating have / continue to emerged from pandemic-related restrictions?
  • How has COVID-19 restrictions affected your sense of community and challenged the creation of shared experiences with the public?

These gatherings in August and September of 2022, are a significant professional and sector development opportunity for a broad range of SA artists to come together and discuss how they connect and continue to practice in these current times free from any production outcomes.

Rethinking Participation has been supported The Department of Premier and Cabinet Arts Recovery Fund, and Country Arts SA.
