Arts Ablaze is firing up, with Scenic Rim Regional Council calling for Expressions of Interest from Queensland creatives to take part in the 2019 regional arts conference and celebration to be held in October.
Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen has urged artists and arts workers to apply before Monday 15 April to be part of the five-day event at Kooralbyn which will showcase the diversity of regional arts practice in Queensland through creative works and site activations and provide a voice for diversity through guest speaker presentations.
"Arts Ablaze will bring Queensland's regional arts to our wonderful part of the world, to share experiences and cultural connections from 2 to 6 October," he said.
"Its focus will be on the transformation of our regional communities and further arts practice through the themes of attitude, access, people and place.
"Applications by artists and arts workers from different backgrounds are strongly encouraged, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from diverse cultural backgrounds and people with disabilities.
"It will be an exciting time for the Scenic Rim arts community to be engaged with the rest of Queensland."
Expressions of Interest are now open and will run until Monday 15 April.
Applicants will need to provide details about themselves, a description of their proposed activity and supply supporting material of their credentials, highlighting recent examples of their work and/or further development of their ideas.
Arts Ablaze is funded by the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund, and proudly supported by The Regional Arts Services Network, an initiative of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a partnership between the Queensland Government and Scenic Rim Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland, CQ University Australia and the Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley.
