Submit your artwork for Horizon Festival 2018!

Horizon Festival of Arts & Culture are calling for submissions from artists or groups of artists to develop and present new work as part of ART IN PLACE, a focus-area for the Horizon Festivalin 2018.

Through Art in Place, Horizon invites artists from all creative practices and disciplines to explore their relationship to the natural or urban landscape and the dialogue between art and place. Horizon Festival welcome applications across a broad range of art forms including but not limited to visual art, sonic works, performance, nature or text based works and installation.

They are seeking conceptual and contemporary approaches to creating and sharing artwork that is relevant and responsive to site and considers the dialogue and experience of the viewer or participant. The works could be held in one precinct or at locations across the Sunshine Coast. While it is expected that artworks will be ephemeral or temporary in nature, the works should have a presence for the duration of the 10 day Festival.

Submissions will be eligible for up to $8,000 of financial support for production and presentation of work. While artists may choose to seek further funding for their project, the proposed work should not be reliant on additional funding and must be deliverable within the $8,000 budget allocation.

Shortlisted artists will be invited to meet with a panel of Horizon team members and professional peers to further discuss their submission and assess the suitability of their work for inclusion in the Festival. This will take place in late February 2018.

We strongly encourage Art in Place applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
