THE SUBSTATION COMMISSIONING PROGRAM

The SUBSTATION COMMISSIONING PROGRAM offers local independent artists the opportunity to develop, create and present a significant body of work. The program provides each artist with time, space and resources to develop their work, from concept to presentation over an extended period and in close collaboration with The SUBSTATION. Commissioning Program Donors will be invited in to see first-hand the creative process from beginning to end, through development to presentation of each new commission.

All donations raised go directly to the artists to create and present the new commissions.

The selected artists all work in the spaces between traditional art forms and have been invited to realise a significant new work of scale within the unique architectural spaces of The SUBSTATION.

YOUR DONATION NOW MEANS TWICE AS MUCH

The SUBSTATION COMMISSIONING PROGRAM is proudly supported by Creative Partnerships Australia through their Plus1 fundraising program.
For each dollar donated before 18 May 2018 towards the creation of these newly commissioned works, Plus1 will match the amount donated, dollar-for-dollar. 

The generosity of supporters who donate $500 or over will be acknowledged as Commissioners of the work in print and on our website.

ABOUT THE SUBSTATION

The SUBSTATION is a not-for-profit multi arts centre located in a 100-year-old repurposed, industrial building.

The SUBSTATION presents an annual curated program of creative development, residencies and presentation. Engaging with artists from across artistic disciplines, working in non-traditional modes and across art-forms, The SUBSTATION provides the opportunity for artists and audiences to connect with our unique space and the distinctive location of Newport.

Reflecting the broader history of Melbourne’s inner west, we encourage artists to engage with our post-industrial space where we foster a culture of interconnectedness, collaboration and independence, and where we value new ideas, imagination and difference. 

Donations play an integral part in The SUBSTATION's ability to support artists to create and present work. Your donation goes directly towards helping The SUBSTATION continue its work, championing contemporary and experimental arts and artists in the west.

We deeply appreciate your contributions and support.
