Vitalstatistix is a South Australian contemporary arts organisation with a focus on the development of multidisciplinary artworks, which experiment with ideas, forms and engagement. We provide a site for big ideas and intimate experiences, for long-term development and hothouse intensity, for contemporary art and community life.
Each year Vitals offers a program of performance, residencies, projects, events, exhibitions, festival experiences, collaborations with like-minded makers and presenters, and initiatives for South Australian artists. Vitals is a feminist organisation and has a proud and continuing tradition of supporting women artists.
Seeing the creative process of artists, and participating in experimentation and social investigation, is the hallmark of Vitalstatistix. Our heritage-listed home the Waterside Workers Hall and location in Port Adelaide is sublimely suited to this endeavour, and it is a unique offer that the organisation makes to both artists and audiences of art.
Vitalstatistix aims to be a vibrant home on the Port River for Australian artists who are experimenting with and changing the world.
Vitalstatistix delivers a range of initiatives:
Our residency and development program, which supports creative development and premiere of new art and performance works.
Our annual lab/hothouse, supporting the development of new experimental, multidisciplinary art.
A residency-based project featured at Adhocracy where guest artists work with South Australian collaborators on a major new artwork.
Multi-year projects that partner artists with non-artists to make new art and performance (current project Climate Century, until 2018).
Each year we collaborate with organisations including Country Arts SA and St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival and like-minded organisations around Australia to develop new works.
