PODspace 2014 program announced

podspace-logo-redOctapod is excited to announce that PODspace is back in a new form – as an exhibition and education program.

Octapod no longer has a dedicated gallery space and so we experimented in 2013 with a pop up style exhibition program, running a series of art events in a lane way in Newcastle East and then hosting an exhibition at Nobby’s Lighthouse.

This year PODspace will work with partners to present four exhibitions in different venues across the Newcastle CBD. Running alongside the exhibitions will be a series of workshops designed to build skills and support career development for artists and curators.

Four Curation and Installation workshops will be offered and participants will have the opportunity to assist with the installation of the PODspace exhibitions. Four other professional skills development workshops will also be offered.

Octapod is excited to being working with the University of Newcastle to deliver PODspace, providing opportunities for emerging curators and artists.

We are also super excited to announce that we will be launching the Sprout Award for emerging artists. Details to be announced shortly.
