Punctum supports artists who need

  • spaces for adventurous arts research and development, to hold workshops, rehearsals, and experiments in performances of all types
  • access to our knowledge, experience and networks to help develop their practice, be it from our Artistic Director Jude Anderson, myself or one of our illustrious board members.  

Our Propogation Program responds to different needs of artists and has three tiers – Lacrimale, Nervosum and Caecum [all types of Punctums].  Each tier offers different benefits.

Examples:
If you need our ICU space for a long period to develop a work, the best option would be the Caeacum level - 2 days free venue hire, reduced rental fees of up to 40%, the chance to share the development of your work through our Social Media and blog, plus opportunities for informal chats with anyone on Punctum’s team. In this case, a 2 week, 24 hour access use of our ICU would only be $510 including the one off joining fee.

For a weekend testing and creating in Castlemaine, the Lacrimale level offers one day free venue hire and reduced rental fees of up to 40%, so a weekend of intense creativity in our White Space would only be $127 including the one off joining fee.  We can assist you to find cheap accommodation and alsospend some time with you discussing your project where helpful.

Fees are valid for 12 months from the date of payment.
