Vitalstatistix is based on Kaurna Country, Yerta Bulti, in Port Adelaide, South Australia. Our home is the Waterside Workers Hall, a heritage-listed building on the Port River. We were founded in 1984 by Margie Fischer, Ollie Black and Roxxy Bent – a radical and ambitious act by three women determined to make a difference to the opportunities for and workplace experiences of women artists in Australia.
This radical determination still lies at the heart of Vitals.
We champion Australian artists who are creating new, multidisciplinary art and public dialogue. We provide an innovative site for important ideas and outstanding arts experiences. We value diversity, experimentation, public engagement and works that have something to say about the world now.
We are a vibrant home for transformative contemporary art and progressive community life.
