Skate of Mind is a grassroots, national touring collective of skaters, filmmakers, photographers, and artists. We run community engagement events, workshops, music, art, digital art, projection, and soundscape design in regional communities.
Partnering with renowned skate culture brands Totem and Element, the Skate of Mind team will connect with regional young people through skateboarding, art and music. Promoting skateparks as safe places for connection and expression for the whole community.
After such a successful tour in Tasmania throughout 2023, so far 2024 dates take the team to Canberra ACT, and Roebourne WA.
Details for both locations will be available closer to the date.

The Vault and Big hART’s Skate of Mind Project
The Skate of Mind team is headed to Canberra to the Vault to complete a two week residency during May 2024. Public showings are on 23rd and 24th May.
The residency will be used to develop new material for the performance work SKATE. SKATE is a daily development-ground exploring the nexus between skateboarding, animated image, music and environmentally threatened locations, brought to public attention by and for young people.
Additionally over the time of the residency pop-up skate events will be held across Canberra and surrounds. These pop-up events engage young people across Canberra skateparks and other locations with skate lessons delivered by Totem. An invitation is extended to attend the showing of SKATE - a new performance work in progress at the Vault.
Location and time details will be available closer to the date.
