Flash Forward Incubator 2019

The theme for this year’s Flash Forward Incubator Program is ‘Boundaries’. It asks participants to think deeply about the role and meaning they play in our world today.
Boundaries, real or imagined, are lines or borders which demark the edge or limit of something, as well as the potential of an unknown beyond them. They are socio-political constructs and physical objects which help us frame our movement, actions and understanding, as well as our perceptions of behaviour, knowledge and justice; be they visual, physical, psychological, personal, geographic and economic. They can also be constraints, but within that constraint, lead to greater freedoms when the larger whole is taken into consideration.
This year’s Flash Forward Incubator Program is open to a wide range of photography-based projects which explore the ideas and actualities of ‘Boundaries’.
We are very proud of the work that all of our Flash Forward Incubator participants have completed this year. All Incubator participants will be published in – and receive copies of – the 2019 Incubator Program catalogue. We are excited to continue our support of emerging artists in their earliest steps toward their career in the arts.
