It’s a busy time for everyone as we hurtle towards Deep Space, but it’s especially busy for the amazing artists working on their projects for Burning Seed 2016 and the ARTery team that support them.
Register your ART
If you are thinking of bringing art to display on the open paddock you must register with the ARTery before 19 August... click here for more details.
Do you have any flame effects or open fire including a burn barrel or candles as part of your art or your camp?
You must apply with the FART (Fire Art Response Team) for permission to burn, details here, deadline for applications is 17 August.
Tough Decisions on Grants
The ARTery received a lot of amazing applications for the large and small grants. The Art Grant Selection Committee had several long meetings (and a lot of prep to read all the submissions!) before deciding on this year’s recipients.
We are pleased to announce the following six projects who received large grants, click on their names for more details about their crew, project (unless they are keeping it hush-hush in order to surprise you!) and ways you can support them (there are lots of awesome fundraisers coming up!)
