inSPACE Development Program

Experience contemporary new work being developed by some of South Australia’s most innovative performing artists and creatives.

Adelaide Festival Centre’s inSPACE Development Program is a cutting-edge, grassroots and innovative program that supports some of South Australia’s most talented, independent artists and creatives.

Established in 2002, to nurture and support the development of new work by independent artists and companies and fostering innovation, experimentation and risk taking. All genres ranging from music, dance, theatre and hybrid cross art forms are supported by the inSPACE Development Program so as to attract and connect the audience of today to the artists of the future.

See hot new talent across all art forms including theatre, dance, visual arts and music. Be part of the artistic conversation: sharing, contributing and discovering how art is created behind the scenes. This creative blurring of the line between artist and audience reinforces Adelaide Festival Centre’s philosophy – Arts for All – that the arts belong to everyone.

Each artist/group chosen for the annual inSPACE program is provided with 1–3 weeks in-kind venue rehearsal, along with a provision for technical equipment hire, and a contribution towards artist wages. Work-in-progress showings are presented to an invited audience at the end of each inSPACE development, providing valuable feedback to help inform the next stage of your artistic process.
