The Brunswick Studio Walk is a free event on Sunday February 28, 2016, between 12-5pm.
The self-directed walk allows participants to stroll at their own pace across seven locations between Brunswick and Anstey Stations.
The walk encourages participants’ discovery of new art, small vibrant galleries and artists’ studios, and emerging artists. The host sites across Brunswick include The Pea Green Boat, SoCA, Studio 23a, Studio Brunswick, Squishface Studio, 33 Tinning St and Tinning St Presents. Each venue will function as an open studio, exhibiting works representative of the culture of each space.
This exciting occasion will generate connections between artists, galleries and studios as well as expand awareness of art facilities, locations and practices. It will also provide a great opportunity for people to come together and explore an active area of Moreland’s creative community.
ArtPlay New Ideas Lab provides an opportunity for artists to propose new projects to undertake at ArtPlay as part of our ongoing creative arts program for children up to 12 years of age and their families.
Expressions of Interest open Monday 22 February and close Friday 1 April 2016.
New ideas from artists of all disciplines for creative arts programming are welcome, including:
any creative developments where children and families are co-creators.
ArtPlay New Ideas Lab supports proposals between $5000 to $20,000 – this range includes the artists’ fee, consumable materials and specialist equipment.
Artists do not necessarily need experience in working with children.
Projects must explore new ideas and new collaborations. Children and families must be part of the development process.
In 2016-17, we will assess all ideas put forward based on merit, however, artists are encouraged to consider putting forward proposals that target children under five years, and DIY interactive installations for children 3+ years that would suit our gallery space as we haven’t received many proposals covering these areas in the past.

Hot Slap (Smiling and Slipping) 1, by Clare Longley
Nut Ice, a new body of work and debut solo exhibition by Clare Longley explores the seductive differences, as well as similarities between inside and outside, modesty and glamour. With a timidity of touch, the silk and multimedia works reflect upon the relationship between the every day and the intimate, arousing a sense of romance amongst the familiar and the unknown.
Clare Longley is an emerging artist based in Melbourne, with recent exhibitions including the Victorian College of the Arts Graduate Exhibition (2014), The Ladies Exhibition, aMBUSH (2015) and a commission work for Sugar Mountain Festival (2016) in collaboration with Prue Stent and Honey Long.
