NOWHERE ART GROUP
The NOWHERE ART GROUP is an artist-run-initiative that formed in 2008 and aimed to stimulate and strengthen contemporary art practice in South East QLD, particularly the Sunshine Coast and present unique multi-arts events and happenings at alternative venues. The group’s manifesto set a spontaneous, contemporary, free and tolerant direction, encouraging linkages between artists and experimentation across artforms. It built awareness of the diversity of artists and artforms on the coast and provided people with easy access to new and innovative locally initiated arts activities. It also provided young and emerging artists the opportunity to develop skills in arts management, curatorship, media and promotion. The events and happenings often took place at non-traditional venues such as multi-deck car parks, alleyways, transit centers, basketball halls and shop fronts and included visual and performing arts.
