Creating interdisciplinary spaces for complex encounters
Microlabs are interdisciplinary workshops that offer small-to-medium arts companies a space in which complex encounters can be floated within an extended network of knowledge. Microlabs act as catchments. They are spaces to stop, gather, exchange, refine, debate, argue, and walk away with a new perspective and better sense of intellectual direction flowing into organisational and artistic practice.
Microlabs generate new forms of knowledge through bringing together participants from diverse fields to investigate questions, themes or issues located at the intersection of research, theory and art practice. Microlabs create open bridges between the arts industry, the academy and disciplines, enabling multi-directional thinking and dialogue between participants acting as knowledge agents.
