IASKA is a non-for profit organisation that runs an international program of visual arts/new media projects that are based on an in-depth engagement with specific local social and environmental situations.

IASKA is widely regarded as one of the most original and innovative art organisation to have emerged in Australia in the last decade.
In the past IASKA's activities were carried out mainly - but not exclusively - in and around the small town of Kellerberrin, 210 kilometres east of Perth. Our new program, however, will be delivered through a global/local network connecting communities throughout Western Australia as well as several overseas locations. Geographically separate situation-specific projects will be the ‘nodes’ of such network and the participants in a dialogue between culturally and geographically distant places. 

The new program will centre on a biennial event focusing on modes of practice that aim to produce work by engaging with, and intervening in, everyday social relations and situations. Special emphasis will be given to approaches that attempt to open art to other – non artistic - forms of social practice such as science and technology, social activism, design and architecture. This approach is representative of important aspects of the contemporary international art scene and reflects the artistic line that IASKA has been developing since its inception.
