The arts are powerful. They have the capacity to bring the community together, tell our stories, boost individual well-being and enhance social connection. As the community emerges bruised and weary from over a year of Covid restrictions, it is time to take the healing power of the arts to the people. It’s time for Art Attack!
Art Attack will commission pop-up creative activations around the region to engage the Yarra Ranges community in refreshing and stimulating ways. Creative activations could include but are not limited to, creative workshops, art installations, live performance, or other participatory activities that creatively enliven identified locations, and engage the local community in the arts.
Emphasis is on making the activity or creative activation accessible to a broad range of ages and skill levels. Proposals that allow for community participation and include the aspirations of community and community plans (where applicable) are encouraged.
Check out the list of locations in Yarra Ranges for possible activation. We welcome thinking outside the box on how to creatively engage communities in these places.
Applicant or key members of the creative team must live or work in the Yarra Ranges OR demonstrate you will partner and work with a Yarra Ranges based organisation, creative business or community group to deliver proposed activation.
This funding opportunity opened on 27 April 2021 and will remain open until all funds are allocated. However, early applications are encouraged, so don’t delay.
