The Rocks Pop-up is looking for fresh blood, and submissions are now open for The Rocks Pop-up 2012/13.
First there was wearable art, then there were kooky performances, and coming up is interactive electronic exploration…
Want to immerse yourself in The Rocks Pop-up and our growing community? We’re looking for creative partners and practitioners interested in exhibition, experimentation and collaboration.
Vivienne Linsley is currently a post-graduate student at Sydney College of the Arts. She creates performance video installations with archival imagery combined with elements of sound, Butoh dance and video. Vivienne’s work explores the concept of the memory, attributing to the formation of the spirit. Her current work is centered on the metamorphic, regenerative nature of memory as it engages with the physical, sensory body.
During the month of October The Rocks Pop-up in collaboration with Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney will be hosting the artist Vivienne Linsley for a month long studio residency and exhibition. Throughout the first two weeks of the month the artist will be working in the exhibition space on her latest project Mnemosyne Echo.
At The Rocks Pop-up, we are always on the look out for great opportunities available for the creative workers out there. Underbelly Arts is currently seeking expressions of interest for larger-scale new works and developmental projects that require longer lead times for the 2013 Lab and Festival. This round of EOIs is only for large scale or ambitious projects that can demonstrate they need a significant lead-time to deliver the work. It’s a new initiative that will run alongside our general 2013 artist call out, scheduled to open early next year.

Object HQ is running a crowd funding campaign for a brilliant creative education initiative called ‘Design Emergency’.
They are trying to raise $20K in 40 days to help build a digital strategy for this truly innovative program that aims to create a generation of design thinkers and expert problem solvers. It takes designers into schools, providing students and teachers with a first hand understanding of what design is and how it relates to everything that we do. It provides the skills to create their own individual ways of living and working.
Object is a non-profit organisation and sadly, there are few funding agencies that support education initiatives in the cultural sector. So crowdfunding is our only hope to transform the success of our pilot program into digital program with national reach.
Once again, we are at awe over how our recent participants are moving on from their pop-up residencies. The Red Room Company who were with us early this year are currently embarking on a great cause where they hope to publish 60 new works about people, places and things all around Australia, creating a poetic map of the entire country.
With your help, they’ll be publishing new poems by writers everywhere in Australia.
