Performance Space

Performance Space

Performance Space is a non-profit organisation that emerged almost 40 years ago in response to artists desire to explore and create new forms of art.  Our success is deeply connected to our supporters who are committed to the advancement of experimental art, new ideas and new futures. 

We are living through times of immense change and imagining the future seems like an impossible task. That’s why we turn to artists.

Artists have always been in the business of imagining futures: offering us visions of a better, more equitable and more inspiring world. Artists dream up new realities and offer bold  alternatives to the status quo. And now more than ever, we need to support artists to dream big. This is where you come in.

For nearly forty years Performance Space has nurtured, collaborated with, commissioned, developed and presented the artists who inspire us to create new futures.

Support our work bringing artists’ visions to life, at a time when we need it most.

With your support in 2021, we look towards: 

  • Commissioning a major First Nations-led project for our 2021 Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art. The future is First Nations.
  • Expanding our new digital presentation platform to bring you more experimental work by Asia Pacific artists – even when our borders remain closed. The future is connected.
  • Keeping artistic process thriving with at least 10 artist residencies and lab opportunities. The future is experimental.
