From 2019, Horizon Festival will focus on delivering a highly-curated program of artworks and events, with a vision to align Horizon with the best of Australia’s national arts festivals.
This shift in focus brings exciting new opportunities for our local arts community, including the chance to participate in key festival projects, engage in professional development through a strong industry program and experience world-class productions and artworks on home-soil.
Here are the current opportunities to get involved with Horizon Festival 2019.
The Sunshine Coast Council through ArtsCoast and Horizon Festival are providing one not-for-profit arts venue on the Sunshine Coast the opportunity to learn from an arts industry leader as part of its inaugural Arts Venue Mentorship program.
FIRST NATIONS WORKSHOPS
Horizon Festival is planning hands-on arts experiences through our workshops series. We are working with our First Nations Producer, Alethea Beetson, to program Indigenous-led arts workshops. We’d love to hear from First Nations artists who deliver visual arts-based workshops living in or connected to the Sunshine Coast region. Please email Alethea at [email protected] to express your interest by 5pm Friday 22 March.
YOUNG FIRST NATIONS PERFORMING ARTISTS
Our First Nations Producer, Alethea Beetson, is programming opportunities for young Indigenous artists from or connected to the Sunshine Coast. From performance to visual arts to music, HORIZON festival wants to keep making space for the youngest generation of one of the oldest surviving cultures in the world! If you are interested in being part of the festival, please email Alethea your bio and samples of your work by Friday 22 March 5pm: [email protected]
CONNECTING TO COUNTRY PILOT ARTIST DEVELOPMENT CAMP
Horizon Festival is calling for Kabi Kabi and Jinibara artists to take part in a pilot artist development program, Connecting to Country, which will see up to five Indigenous artists mentored to develop new works for showcase at Horizon Festival 2019.
