Art registration

Art Registration & Grants

We love and encourage spontaneous combustions of creative energy anytime, anywhere at Seed, but if you are making art that you plan to display on the open paddock – especially large-scale, flammable or fiery art – it’s important that you register with the ARTery! All art *must* register either Online or Onsite. Please make sure to read our policies before registering your piece. 

1. Online:  You'll fill out a General Art Registration Form by clicking here, you can preview the 2017 form here and between 1-Mar-17 and 15-Jul-17. NOW CLOSED

2. Onsite: Missed the mid-July deadline? No worries mate! Just pop into our on-site ARTery HQ, from 10am-4pm any day during the festival and complete the walk-in registration form. If you are a keen bean you can fill it out at home by downloading it and bringing it with you < link coming soon!>. Note that flame effects installations cannot register on-site you must get pre-approval from the FART team before August 20th.
