Dirty Playground is the Melbourne based initiative whose aim is to transform underutilized spaces into an artists creative haven.
They have recently partnered with the DuNord securing a 110sqm basement space as a temporary artist studio for three lucky artists to transform in any way they want.
They have put out the call for all artists to submit a proposal of how they will reinvent the space in response to the theme of “Six Months of Darkness”, not only an expression of the Nordic months of darkness, but also a literal interpretation of the residency in a basement. The theme is open for artists’ interpretation with three successful applicants to be chosen by DuNord and Dirty Playground.
Artists will need to provide a 200-word bio or CV as well as a one-page proposal responding to how they will use the space in response to the theme with attached samples of their work emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (not .com)
