River of Art Festival 2023

Planning has already begun for this year’s festival so now is the time to start thinking about your involvement! No idea is too big or small.

Watch this space for the call for entries in the coming months. Funding Support River of Art Festival organisers are thrilled to be collaborating with Muladha Gamara on a prototype that will integrate traditional dance and story-telling with contemporary techniques of art animation, light projections and audio. The story of Guruwul (Migrating Whale) is a dance performed by women and men that speaks to concepts of traditional law and connection. Artists will work together to develop a performance piece that tells the story of the passage of the pregnant whale up the Eastern coast. The result will be a visual spectacle of movement, light, colour and sound, with animated artworks projected onto large backdrops and the performers themselves, accompanied by song and narration in Dhurga and English languages. South East Arts are supporting this project through the Country Arts Support Program (CASP). Join the River of Art Committee

River of Art Festival organisers are searching for diverse individuals who share their love of the arts, festivals and the region to join the 2023 committee. The Committee meets monthly and they ask everyone to chip in for special projects or events where possible. Specifically, they need people interested in volunteer coordination and artist liaison, and also need a new Treasurer to maintain an overview of our financial affairs and ensure that the financial records are maintained. The Treasurer will oversee budgets, accounts and financial statements; ensure compliance with relevant legislation; and prepare reports to funders and statutory bodies. The Treasurer will also be key liaison with the River of Art Festival accounting firm using Xero accounting. Get in touch if you’d like more information: Leanne Joyce, or call 0424 159 562 Jennifer Cunich or call 0411 118 099.
