PODzome: in the middle of things  heralds the commencement of Newcastle's This is Not Art Festival, 'TiNA'. For almost two decades TiNA, considered one of Australia's leading contemporary emerging arts festivals, has facilitated the convergence of experimental and emerging artists, writers, performers, thinkers, musicians, dancers, arts workers, media makers and creative researchers in a kind of 'transart' ideas and resource exchange.

PODzomeis also a formal 'hat doffing' to the alliances and interconnections generated by and between organisations such as Octapod and the University of Newcastle.

The University Gallery is delighted to host PODzome for PODspace, an arts initiative that has become an open structure, not fixed to a format or place – it regenerates and grows horizontally with offshoots popping up throughout Newcastle. Rhizome-like. Curated by Jen Denzin, former PODspace Director, PODzome features the work of Jen Denzin, Penny Dunstan, Maggie Hensel-Brown, Mandy Robinson, Eleanor Jane Robinson, Bree Sanders, Brooke Stevens, and Alison Smith.

Entry is free, refreshment served, all are welcome.

Exhibition dates: Wednesday 10 September to Saturday 27 September 2014
