Burning Seed Festival - THEY WANT YOU!

Burning Seed Festival - THEY WANT YOU!

If you’re an artist from the Riverina, Burning Seed’s ARTery department would love to hear from you. They have $1000 in arts grants available for a regional artist from the Riverina attending this year’s Burning Seed festival in Matong.

Last year a Riverina grant was awarded to former Projects and Communications Officer of Western Riverina Arts, Jason Richardson, for the artwork Colour from Outer Space. Participants were delighted by 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.

Burning Seed would like to get more local artists and art lovers involved and offers an opportunity for people who love to create, but aren’t necessarily professional artists.

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 them know that you are from the Riverina. You can review the questions they ask you here and check out the policies including more information on the kind of projects they fund.
