Local artists wanted for Horizon Festival 2021


Katina Olsen by Trina Carey

If you’re an established local artist working in visual arts, dance, theatre or music, Horizon Festival has a wonderful opportunity for you to be involved in the Homegrown program during the 2021 festival, August 27 – September 5, 2021.

Horizon Festival is calling for submissions from established Sunshine Coast-based artists and collaborators to present new or existing works as part of Homegrown 2021.

Three projects or works will be selected and presented as part of the festival, with up to $9000 available per project supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund.

Community Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski said the inaugural 2020 Homegrown series was an important success and we had learned a lot.

“Following that success, we will again place local artists and local creative content at the Horizon forefront in 2021, providing a platform for celebrating and sharing the stories and ideas important to locals and visitors of the Sunshine Coast.”

Horizon Festival Artistic Director Dr Lynne Bradley said she was looking forward to seeing the incredible projects artists and collaborators would put forward to feature in next year’s festival.

“We’re proud to once again offer this platform to showcase some of the Sunshine Coast’s most exciting and innovative artists who are making and presenting world-class work,” Dr Bradley said.

“This kind of investment in our local artists will help the region continue to grow a rich arts ecology, as well as develop new Sunshine Coast works for potential future national and international touring.”

Submissions close on November 30, 2020.

Homegrown is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Sunshine Coast Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
