Writing in the Expanded Field

Writing in the Expanded Field is a public-facing experimental writing program in partnership with the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.

Writing in the Expanded Field explores new compositional approaches to writing and publishing the arts, bringing together academics, artists, novelist, curators, poets, designers and others to respond to ACCA’s exhibition program. Writers are selected through an open call-out process that attracts a diverse, high calibre pool of applicants. Selected writers share their writing and participate in interdisciplinary discussion in a series ofworkshops, and read their responses at a public event in the gallery. Finally they collaborate on digital publication outcome. Writing in the Expanded Field is a high-impact research translation project in which creative research is applied and tested through inclusive public programming and bespoke digital outcomes.

Lab members Lucinda Strahan (project founder) and Prof David Carlin convene this project.
