Facilitated by national and international practitioners, there are a total of twenty places available (14 national, 6 international).

The 2015 iteration of Time_Place_Space: Nomad will hit the road from Melbourne into regional Victoria for two weeks in November, while asking artists to consider issues of economic downturn, scarcity and transience, of place and nationhood, the bare necessities of life and art-making in an unfixed and ever-changing environment.
