SUPERMASSIVE is APHIDS’ program to engage and support the development of the experimental arts community in Australia and beyond. As one of Australia’s leading experimental and artist-led companies, APHIDS looks to forge and sustain relationships with early career and more senior artists, building partnerships and pathways for future opportunities. SUPERMASSIVE demonstrates our commitment to broadening the knowledge and sustainability of arts practices that share and expand APHIDS’ artistic methodologies and approach.

APHIDS has been mentoring and running workshops annually since 2007 to provide support and significant professional national and international, tailored and self-directed development opportunities. So far we have offered mentorships and secondments to over 50 young and emerging artists working in cross-artform practice.

APHIDS acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Boon wurrung peoples on whose lands we live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded and we pay our respect to past, present, and future Aboriginal elders and community, and to their long and rich history of artmaking on this Country.
