The organising committee of the Barossa Arts Festival has announced that the call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) is now open for artists, venues, sponsors and community groups to participate in the highly anticipated 2024 edition of the festival, until the end of September 2023.
If you are part of a community group or venue and are interested in hosting an event during the 2024 Barossa Arts Festival, a community information session will be held on September 18, at The Barossa Cellar, Angaston.
“We encourage venue owners and community groups to join us in this celebration of art by becoming a festival venue,” said Barossa Arts Festival Program Director, Karen Nickels.
“Your involvement will not only provide artists with a platform to showcase their creations, but also contribute to the cultural vibrancy and tourism appeal of the Barossa and Light regions,” said Karen.
The 2022 Barossa Arts Festival saw participation from over 10,000 attendees who engaged with the extensive Arts Trail and attended live artist demonstrations, workshops and exclusive events throughout April.
The festival wasn’t solely an exhibition of extraordinary talent, it also enabled art sales worth over $40,000 and paved the way for enduring relationships between artists and venues, culminating in an abundance of ongoing art displays across the region.
Now, the festival is back, slated to run for an exhilarating 30 days, throughout April 2024.
Here, you will learn how to add your creative touch to the Barossa Arts Festival program by hosting your own arts-focused umbrella event in April 2024.
Be a venue on the extensive Arts Trail, pair an Art Workshop with a unique food and wine experience or create your own special stand-alone event with something exciting like live music or an art demonstration.
“We are excited to discuss the potential partnerships and showcase the benefits and opportunities available for community groups and venues,” said Karen.
“This is your gateway to discovering how you can contribute to the Barossa Arts Festival by hosting your own arts-focused umbrella event.”
