Registration is now open for artists and visual and performing arts organisations to showcase their creative talents as part of the 2019 Festival. The 2019 River of Art Festival will run from 17 to 27 May.
Most events will take place on the weekends bookending the Festival, with the final weekend coinciding with the ACT’s Reconciliation Day long weekend. Roll up now to register your event or idea.
The Festival will open with an exhibition at the new Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, end with the Busking Championships in Narooma a week later and be jam packed with over 100 exciting events in between. So, if you, or your group, sing, dance, are into textiles, want to run a workshop, host an exhibition, hold a music gig, sell your visual art or craft or are looking to set up a makers market, get in touch. Wherever your artistic talents lie, we want your event in the Festival program! Be part of the colour and movement up and down the coast.
To register your event or workshop or for more info go to the River of Art website. Expression of interest forms can be completed online, or alternatively pick up a hard copy of the form at your local Library and return it by mail.
The River of Art Festival line up is teeming with events held at locations covering the length of the South Coast, from Durras to Bermagui and beyond. Expressions of interest close on 1 February 2019, so get thinking and start planning. The program will be compiled and released in early April, two weeks before Easter.
A separate registration process will be announced shortly for Open Studios and the annual Festival Art Prize.
