CAAP Artist Lab

CAAP Artist Lab x SA 2023

Artist Lab SA 2023

Contemporary Asian Australian Performance and OzAsia Festival are back with their exciting professional development program led by South Australian performance maker Valerie Berry.

Connecting Asian Australian artists in South Australia, the CAAP Artist Lab is an unprecedented collaboration with leading SA companies. This program is a unique opportunity to meet fellow artists, and industry professionals that will not only enrich each participant’s artistic journey but also contribute to the creative community in South Australia.

Nine Asian Australian artists will gather for five days aimed at fostering learning, experimentation, skills development, and collaborative growth. Through this comprehensive week-long intensive, participants will engage in masterclasses, workshops, and seminars guided by accomplished industry experts from our partner organisations. To enrich the experience, each artist will be paired with a partner company, facilitating a deeper relationship with one particular organisation.

The Artist Lab program aims to align with the creative aspirations of each participant, equipping them with valuable tools and resources for their ongoing artistic endeavors. This opportunity not only encourages personal development but also cultivates connections that can extend well beyond the program itself.

An honorarium will be paid to each of the successful participants at the conclusion of the program.


Participants will need to be available for the following:

  • Mid-October (2 x Online Introduction Sessions, dates TBC)
  • Monday 23 October to Friday 27 October (Intensive Week)
  • Mid-October to early-Nov (3 x one-on-one coffee catchups with paired partner company)

Applications are now closed.
