Flying Arts and Arts Queensland with the support of the Visual Arts and Crafts strategy are offering 15 grants to support Queensland artists wishing to attend 'We are here' - the first national symposium dedicated to Artist Run Initiatives (ARIs) in Sydney from the 1st to 4th of September 2011.
The symposium is being held by the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) and Firstdraft. It brings together leaders from the artist run initiative sector to explore concepts and ideas of future modelling for ARIs and the potential for a national ARI network in Australia. The event will take place in venues across the city and include talks, workshops, events, an exhibition and a live art performance program.
Artists eligible to apply will have demonstrated experience in ARI's and be able to make a positive, articulate contribution to the proceedings. Successful candidates will be those who provide the strongest response to selection criteria with consideration given to equity among regions, gender, area of practice, and social and cultural justice.
Expressions of Interest must be submitted online by COB Friday 12 August 2011. There are 15 grants each worth $650 towards travel and accomodation to participate in the event in Sydney.
Successful applicants will be notified by August 19 2011.
