In a corporate meeting the artist often feels like an imposter, in the studio the non-artist often feels unsure of what the rules are. Everyone feels like they have to drink too much coffee to keep up. Durational Lattes is a bridging exercise. Armed with disgusting wacky shirts Field Theory are RIGHT NOW upping the heart rates of Sydney’s LEADERS across many disciplines and providing comfortable modes to discuss all that is possible about this practice and where it can go in the future.
The notes from these meetings are then relayed back to members at Performance Space who interpret them through their own caffeinatttttttion.So the meeting notes that will follow this are not necessarily accurate representations of the complex, meaningful and diverse exchanges that these meetings are generating. They are espresso size reflections and as such probably echo the interesting difficulties of documenting this type of practice.
Some of the LEADERS Field Theory are meeting include Ralph Myer, Artistic Director of Belvoir; Chanele Moss, Director of Events at the Australian Museum; Sonny Dallas Law, Cultural Development Officer Redfern Community Centre ; Anne Mossop, Head of Public Programs Sydney Opera House ; Anne Reeves, National Parks Association; Simon Mordant, Chair of the MCA; Nancy Romano, Fox Studios Chief Executive.
The Australia Council granted Performance Space a Cultural Leadership Program Development grant to enable the artists of Field Theory to extend their skills as Live Art strategic leaders.
