about RealTime

RealTime is Australia's critical guide to international contemporary arts. Our focus is on innovation in performance (live art, experimental theatre, dance, music, sound), photomedia, film, video, interactive media and hybrid arts.

The RealTime website offers a comprehensive view of Australian contemporary art with an international perspective, combining weekly-updated content focusing on people and ideas featuring video, audio and text interviews; featured events (forums, festivals) and arts issues; the RealTime archive featuring all content from 2001-2015; and two fully indexed archives sites with content from 1994-2015—realtimedance and the media art archive.

For 21 years, the print edition of RealTime had a run of 20,000 copies (48-56 A3 pages per edition) distributed bi-monthly and free to over 750 points across Australia—cafes, arts centres, bookshops, theatres, galleries, university departments, regional and overseas arts centres, as well as to subscribers.

Now in its 22nd year, RealTime has transitioned to being an online platform for quality writing about innovation in the arts. Most of the writing is by practising artists, artworkers and other arts specialists.
