Calling for Expressions of Interest in Gladstone Region pop-up public performance opportunity

Take a local partner for an exciting community arts and culture project.

What could a textile artist and a poet, a watercolour artist and an actor or an animator and a vocalist, create to inspire the community?

The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum is calling on local artists to Take pART, during a creative pop-up project that will see visual and performing artists collaborate, in conjunction with Gladstone Regional Council’s EcoFest 2019.

Held at the Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens, from 9am to 3pm Sunday June 2, to celebrate World Environment Day, EcoFest 2019 is coordinated by local event specialists Gladstone Festivals & Events (GF&E), who will play a vital Take pART role.

Supported by the Gladstone Regional Council’s Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), Take pART provides the opportunity for local artists to work together innovatively, making new connections across the region.

Successful Take pART submissions will consider the people, landscape and environment of the region, as well as address the 2019 EcoFest theme: Slim Your Bin With a Low Waste Diet.

To express your interest in participating, submit a written proposal:

  • outlining your Take pART idea,
  • including the details of the collaborating artists' role, with CV's and
  • proposed Gardens’ performance space.

This pop-up public art project provides an opportunity for arts and community to come together, discovering new audiences and celebrating the heritage and character of the region.

Interested artists can submit their Take pART proposals to Gallery & Museum Manager / Curator, Jo Duke, by 23 April 2019.

Artists from remote areas of the region are encouraged to apply, provision for travel will be considered to complete your project. Successful submissions will be advised by Wednesday, 10 May 2019.

Take pART follows previously successful Gallery & Museum projects which have involved talented local artists exhibiting across the region, during Art on Fleet, Art in Parks and Artist Windows.

RADF is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Gladstone Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
