If your answer was 'YES!' to all of the above then read on my friend...
The Australian Social Innovation Exchange are running a festival from Friday 13- Sunday 22 April on the theme of Innovating for a Better World. The major part of the festival will be the Art Exhibition called Play.
"The exhibition aims to generate a space where people are allowed the time to play. Instead of using established professional artists we are appealing to people who have been involved in change making, either professionally or in their own lives and communities. We are asking them to produce “art” as a product of playing around key themes which inform the Australian Social Changemakers’ Festival. We are hoping in such a space works will be generated that don’t provide a list of answers but touch us in ways we can’t define. Works that may, for even the slightest moment, break through language, categories and numbers and inspire us, lighting that irrational passion which drives for change." - ASIX website
So not only can you have your work exhibited at the Weave Arts Centre in Eveleigh but you can win a big pot of cash and feel good that you're using your skills in really positive ways. The deadline for submissions is February 15th but your work doesn't have to be completed then, you can just sumbit a few sketches or experiments.
Can this get any better?
Read up on all the exhibition details here and start playing..
If you win you'll be as happy as these guys and their bus!
