THE WIRED LAB is an artist led organisation evolving interdisciplinary art practices in rural Australia. We create opportunities for the research, production and presentation of projects that connect international and local artists with communities in new ways. Our curated programs and projects involve artists working from a regional context whilst producing outcomes of local and global relevance. Our activities range from skills development for young people, seniors, emerging and mid career artists, to the creation, presentation, publication and promotion of new works and major live arts projects.

‘The Edge’ Cootamundra, Tumut & Temora, 2016-2017

‘The Edge’ – Phase 1 in Tumut NSW has commenced

‘The Edge’ is a twelve month skills development project for young people (aged 13 -17 & 18-25) living in the small rural communities of Tumut, Temora and Cootamundra who will work with contemporary Australian photographer Tamara Dean. On September 27th 2016, the initial workshop phase commenced with a selection of young people from the Snowy Valley’s Shire (Tumut & surrounds) learning various photographic techniques while working with Tamara to document their interactions in natural sites of recreation.


During 2017, the 2nd phase of the project, creative outcomes such as any participant works and Tamara’s work specific to each community, will be presented at significant community events in each locality via methods such as exhibition, projection and screening. In October 2017 there will be a large culminating exhibition combining all localities (Tumut, Temora and Cootamundra) and their participants at The Wired Lab’s Biennial ‘Wired Open Day’ event.
