Applications close 4 March
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:
- interactive exhibitions
- 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.
