APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN FOR 2018/2019

DOWNLOAD ARTWORK SUBMISSION GUIDELINES 

Entry submissions for 2018 and 2019 are due by April 9, 2018.

On behalf of the custodians of Alice Springs and Parrtjima organisers we invite all artists to submit your artwork and join us in sharing Aboriginal culture, language and dreamtime stories through artwork submissions being translated into 21st century light installations at Parrtjima - A Festival in Light.

We acknowledge this event happens on Arrente country and we are pleased that a senior custodian for Mparntwe welcomes you to country, inviting all to "apetyerne - come" and submit artworks, ideas and stories. We are very grateful the process is guided and advised by significant senior Arrente people.

We are requesting submissions for artworks, media or ideas that align with Parrtjima 2018 theme ‘Cultural Freedom’ and 2019 theme ‘Language Expressions’.

This is an amazing opportunity for artists to submit artwork in any medium and be involved in sharing the culture of the oldest living adaptive race in the world.
