What’s the big idea?

During the pandemic, we have had lots of time to think and many of us have come up with ideas that could be the next big thing – Arts Northern Rivers want to know all about it.

Applications are now open for Your Big Idea, calling for proposals for ambitious ideas ready to be developed into contemporary arts projects. The winning idea will receive $5,000 seed funding in addition to a tailored project development package; a unique opportunity to work closely with Arts Northern Rivers to leverage further funding opportunities and gain access to industry networks. 

The project aims to foster a culture of innovation and experimentation, emphasising the creative talent residing in the Northern Rivers. Arts Northern Rivers welcomes proposals from the cutting edge of visual arts and experimentation, performance, theatre, live art, music, sound, dance or interdisciplinary contemporary arts practice.

Proposed ideas need to have a public outcome at a site within the Northern Rivers and be led by a Northern Rivers based artist or team. Project partners are encouraged and can be sought locally, nationally and internationally.

Applications will be assessed by a panel of highly regarded industry leaders soon to be announced. The panelists will select a winner at the Your Big Night event to be held in November after five shortlisted applicants have pitched their big ideas.

Applications are open now and close on October 12, 2020.
