Illuminate Adelaide
We're lighting a New Light

We're calling for applications from First Nations artists to join our inaugural program as part of New Light.

Presented by Illuminate Adelaide and ANAT, New Light 2021 will showcase experimental and diverse moving image works by contemporary First Nations artists. The commissioned artworks will be displayed on the screens at the entrance to Adelaide Festival Centre as part of Illuminate Adelaide this July.

Who can apply?

We are seeking to commission four artists or artist groups to produce short, experimental moving-image works of up to one-minute’s duration. Applicants must have the necessary skills to produce content in 16:9 video format and the resulting work must be suitable for public display.

Successful artists and artist groups will receive a fee of $2,000 to produce the work, inclusive of artist fees, production costs and materials.

Could this be you? Find out more below.
