Interested in making art at Burning Seed this year? Sure you are!!
We’ve seen some AMAZING installations – large and small – grace our little forest playground over the years…. from awesome ‘stand-and-look’ pieces to ‘get-right-in-there-and-interact!’
All art projects that are set up on the Paddock need to register with Red Earth City’s ARTery Department.
The ARTery works with anyone bringing art to Burning Seed and supports art at the event through art grants and artist services.
How to Register
ARTery registration forms for art on the Paddock in 2016 go live April 1 (no fooling!) and to help prospective artists navigate the process there’s heaps of info on the website about registration, policy, grants and more.
Getting an Art Grant
OK so you’ve had an AMAZING idea but you need additional funds to help you bring your vision to life? We got this – the ARTery Department offers two levels of grants for artists:
There are a few things to bear in mind before you apply for a grant… like ARTery will not finance 100% of any proposal – rather encourages artists to gift, and find alternative ways to fundraise the amount they require.
Grants are also mainly for approved materials for construction of artwork – for instance wood, fixtures and fittings, fabric, paint etc. Grants are NOT provided for ‘labour’, Burning Seed tickets or personal travel expenses.
Applications for both grants also open April 1 2016. The deadline for large grants is May 15 and small grant applications close June 19 at 6pm.
