Through a national open call, 12 Australian artists working across eight new projects were selected to participate. Combining weekly group workshops and guest talks with international and local speakers from art, design and futures practices, artists explored questions of futures and futurity in relationship to their practices, the role of art in times of transition and transformation, and the possibilities of art as a practice of futuring. New work and work in progress developed over these six weeks was presented in Uploading – a weekend-long online exhibition and live performance program.
