Red Hot Arts Central Australia announces recipients for Project Seed 2023
From inception to presentation, Project Seed supports artists by providing funding, time, space, and mentoring possibilities as well as creative, technical, administrative and site expertise from RHACA and Desert Festival staff. New works are then presented at Desert Festival – an award-winning event held in September/October each year in Mparntwe/Alice Springs.
In the first half of the year, artists focus on growing their works in preparation for a mid-year, work-in-progress showing to industry peers for feedback. Artists then use the remaining months to finish their projects before the final presentation at Desert Festival 2023.
This year’s recipients are diverse and experimental, with art forms ranging from folk to hip-hop, storytelling to sculpture, and include both emerging and experienced artists. RHACA is honoured to provide a platform for the incubation of exciting new works and to contribute to the NT’s vibrant arts sector.
