If you’re an artist from the Riverina, Burning Seed’s ARTery department would love to hear from you!! We have $1000 in arts grants available to each of the East and West Riverina areas to show that little bit of extra love to locals attending this year’s Matong merrymaking. Last year a Riverina grant was awarded to Jason Richardson for the artwork Colour from Outer Space/Youtube. This fantastic installation urged us to “watch as nets capture ethereal spirits released during the transmogrification of sound into light” – YEAH!!
Participants delighted in Jason’s work which offered sound-activated visuals on a TV with percussion lying around to encourage them to trigger it. The idea was to represent inclusivity by having an installation that responded to people making music.
This year we’d love to see more local artists and art lovers get involved. You don’t have to have a long history displaying your work – Burning Seed offers the unique opportunity to help make art happen for people who love to create, but aren’t necessarily professional artists.
Need inspiration? Check out the Burning Seed ARTery Facebook page for images of the amazing work at last year’s event and our Art Guide for some tips and things to consider before making an installation for Burning Seed.
Applications for Riverina grants ARE NOW open and close on June 19th 2016 at 6pm.
Simply apply using the small grant application form, and let us know that you’re from the Riverina East or West area. You can review the questions we ask you here and check out our policies including more information on the kind of projects we do fund.
You must be attending the event to display your work and a ticket is NOT included in the art grant. For more information on tickets including details on how to get your Burner Profile please visit our Ticketing Page.
