Underbelly Arts presents the boldest new voices in Australian art, primarily through their biennial festival on Cockatoo Island, and through showcasing works in progress through the Underbelly Arts Lab. It started in 2007 as a response to the number of artists working out of their bedrooms and in warehouses, in isolation. As a kind of social experiment, it sought to bring all those artists under the one roof and expose them to one another, and to new audiences. http://underbellyarts.com.au/
