Springhill Institute

Springhill Institute was established in 2003 with the simple intention of bringing people together in constructive discourse. The programme began with a series of lectures in which artists were invited to talk on a subject of their choosing; while exhibitions such as Time & Breakfast (2004) – which opened at 6am with a free fried breakfast – created an alternative platform for social interaction. From 2004 to 2006 the institute hosted seven international artist's residencies, in which each participant made an ambitious project in an intensive two-week process, while living in an apartment in the Victorian factory that houses the institute's studio and gallery. Springhill Institute is now in a process of reconfiguration, establishing a structure to support our present activities, extend our terms of collaboration and increase our mobility.
