ARTery has its finger on Burning Seed’s art pulse, and this year they’ve been working hard with all you amazingly talented, creative and crazy people to paint our Red Earth City… well… red. So expect to wrap your senses around some fantastic art on the Paddock this year. There’s also an Art Parade in store, an art/media centre to explore and the chance to register more art.

We’re pleased to announce that we have funded a total of 24 projects this year in addition to the Effigy and the Temple! We had some amazing submissions this year and wish we could have supported more, but we’re working with limited funds.
What we clearly do have in abundance is a community with unlimited talent, energy and creativity. Right now there is a lot of building going on in backyards, supplies being ordered and other general arty awesomeness.
Please join our NEW Facebook Page because we’ll be posting details about some of the projects over the few weeks to get you excited about what’s coming to the Paddock.
If you’re bringing art and planning to put up an installation at Burning Seed, we want to hear about it! It doesn’t matter if your piece is big or small — if it’s on the open paddock and not in a Theme Camp please make sure you register with the ARTery to get your spot on the map.
You only have a few days to do this — 31 August is the deadline. You can register here. All art pieces must have a Leave No Trace plan, be well lit at night (even if it’s small please light it for safety so things don’t go bump) and if fire is involved you absolutely need approval from the Fire Art Response Team (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
Artedia Space & Art Parade
This year the ARTery will share a new space with the Media team: we’re calling Artedia (get it?). ARTery crew will be at Artedia from 11am to 3pm Wed to Sat during the event to answer any questions and to register your project. Drop by anytime (even after hours) to see our new large art map and read up on the installations around the Paddock.
On Friday night we’re hosting an Art Parade from 4-5pm. Join us for a walking art tour and learn about many of the pieces that have been created for your delight — costumes are highly encouraged!
