Arts Incubators at Realm

Arts Incubators transform ArtSpace at Realm with multi-dimensional creations that evolve over time through the interactions of artists and visitors. Writers, performers, digital and visual artists invite you to be part of their world as they take up residency in ArtSpace.


Dates: 26 February to 25 March
Venue: ArtSpace at Realm

Text and writing take over ArtSpace with RingWORD, a curated mix of zines, concrete poetry and live storytelling. This is your chance to play with words and interrogate them, and turn them inside out. Look out for performances, workshops, the return of the ArtSpace typewriters and blackboard wall, the magical Story Peddlers tent, zines by Sticky Institute, concrete poetry by Collective Effort and ‘story-bombing’ by Spineless Wonders.

Special Free Event
ALOUD: an evening of performance poetry

Thursday 22 March 22, 6pm-7.45pm

This event features text and language at its most dynamic; including spoken word, sound poems, and improvised performance. Underpinning the work of these artists and writers is an ongoing exploration of the potential of text—its musicality and its dissonance, its light and dark, its ability to exact meaning and to defy it. This event builds on the works of Collective Effort Press, Melbourne-based champions of new writing in non-traditional forms and formats.
