Abstract

Redefining Places for Art was conceived in collaboration with Arts Queensland and the Australia Council for the Arts and funded by the Australian Research Council as a Linkage Project. The project was based on a strong impression that the relationship between place and performance is shifting substantially, and that organisers and producers of new work are increasingly exploring alternative venues to conventional theatres and concert halls. While formats and venues for performance inherited from nineteenth century European models still shape the Australian cultural and funding landscape, new forces are challenging assumptions about the formats, venues and audiences for the performing arts. These forces have become too prominent to be ignored. The project (funded as a Linkage project by the Australian Research Council from 2008-2010) set out to investigate whether this development indeed reflects a significant change in the cultural realities of performance culture in Queensland. In addition to examining the sparsely available relevant statistical data, the project focused on identifying key artistic drivers behind this development from the perspective of artists and managers, and to glean audience perspectives on the relationship between live performance and place.
