Australia Council has collaborated with Lismore Regional Gallery and the Splendour in the Grass music festival to launch SPLENDID, a groundbreaking initiative to workshop and showcase young and emerging Australian artists.Ten young and emerging artists who work across the visual arts, theatre, dance, design, installation, architecture, digital art, text, sound and other creative areas will be chosen to undertake a three-week Arts Lab residency in Lismore in July 2009.During the residency, the ten SPLENDID participants will not only be mentored in their own art form by some of the most recognised artists in the world, they will be encouraged to explore the concept of ‘’cross artform’’, working collaboratively within a dynamic environment that encourages critical thinking and experimentation.The concepts workshopped during the residency will be further developed over a six month period and several will be commissioned to premiere at Splendour in the Grass 2010. This process will occur three times, with artworks commissioned for Splendour in the Grass 2010, 2011 and 2012.Applications close 4 May 2009.
