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. 

If you want to display your art on the open paddock you must register with the ARTery and get placed by us. If you plan to install your creation within a theme camp or in your camp there is no need to register. You can register two ways;

1. Online: NOW CLOSED 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.

2. Onsite: 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. Note that flame effects installations cannot register on-site you must get pre-approval from the FART team before August 20th.
