Graffiti Research Lab Masterclass

In March 2008, GRL visited Adelaide to produce the week long ‘GRL Masterclass’, presented by Carclew Youth Arts in association with the Adelaide Bank Festival of Arts and ANAT.

GRL creators, Evan Roth and James Powderly are dedicated to outfitting street artists with open source technologies for urban communication. GRL’s goal is to technologically empower individuals to creatively alter and reclaim their surroundings from unchecked development and corporate visual culture.

Through a public application process, the following 15 Australian artists, collaborators & facilitators, were chosen to participate in the Masterclass;

  • Jo Kerlogue
  • Adam Synnott
  • Kel Mocilnik
  • Chris Tamm
  • Narisha Cash
  • Shakthidharan
  • Simeon Moran
  • Laura Wills
  • Billie Thomson
  • Logan Macdonald
  • Justin Schmidt
  • Ali Kadhim
  • Benzo
  • Jerrem

The Masterclass was a part of Carclew Youth Arts Breeding Ground Industry Development program. This program invites artists of national or international significance to ignite, inspire, provoke and challenge local practitioners and audiences to profile innovation and stimulate critical debate.

ANAT provided places in the Masterclass for five national participants, as part of its Emerging Technologies Program, designed to create environments for inspiration, enrichment, engagement, playful exploration and collaboration across disciplines and hybrid practices.

The GRL legacy continues to live on throughout Australia see
