River of Art : Call for Proposals

The River of Art Festival is now inviting proposals from artists, the community and business to participate in this year’s festival. The annual Festival will be back bigger than ever in 2022 with an exciting program of events from 16-25 September. The River of Art Festival will host a diverse range of arts shows, music, and performances, concluding with a spectacular laser and light show called Luminous: Art After Dark on 24th September. ‘We invite ideas from artists, performers, galleries, venues, and business on how best to be part of the Festival. We’re looking for artists to open up their studios or have an exhibition, suggest workshops, musical or theatrical performances, and murals,’ said Leanne Joyce, Chair of the Festival. ‘Equally, we invite hospitality venues or galleries to host an artist, exhibition or performance. The River of Art Festival is in its 17th year and is committed to showcasing talented artists across the Eurobodalla. Whilst the Festival was cancelled last year due to COVID-19 lockdowns, in the past the Festival has held over 120 individual events. ‘We want to see galleries, clubs, hotels, shopfronts, cafes and restaurants bursting with art, ideas and entertainment. ‘We believe after the bushfires, COVID-19 lockdowns, the community is ready to celebrate and visitors are keen to enjoy the arts and culture, as well as natural beauty of our region,’ Leanne said. The deadline for proposals is Saturday 18 June. Inclusion in the program is free and entries are now open. Program entry forms are on our website at or email inquiries to The River of Art Festival is funded under the NSW Regional Events Acceleration Fund, Festivals Australia, and the Eurobodalla Shire Council.
