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: APPLY ONLINE: click here, open until July 15th.   View the entire form here to see what info we'll ask you.

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.

Do you require funding to make your project happen?

We have two tiers of grants available and two speciality grants and for the first time in 2018 we now have an EOI (Expression of Interest) Grant to help you develop your concept before you apply for a fully funded grant. Check out the ART Info Night Powerpoint Presentation here for a review of the grants we offer and some pro-tips for success.
