Art is... a Footprint - 2-11 June 2017

.....................................................................................

We are excited to announce the first instalment of our next three year theme Art is... a Footprint. The 2017 sub theme for Art is... a Footprint will be ‘moving together’. We will focus on motion, movement and the exploration of using familiar objects in different ways. Below is the Artistic Vision for 2017...

Art is... festival is produced annually over ten days in Horsham each June. It engages rural and isolated communities in high quality art experiences and art making. It strives to set a bench mark of how rural festivals can innovate and engage its' community, and provide opportunities for visiting professional arts companies to work with such communities.

Artistic Vision -
Art is... a Footprint - moving together

Art is... festival loves to explore and tell stories, your stories, and communicate our community’s shared identity, crafted by the footprints we make as we live in the Wimmera.

This year Art is... is in motion, moving together. Motion opens up to energy, energy to chain reactions, chain reactions to chance, chance to precisely crafted chaos. Let’s move together to explore the everyday objects in our lives.

Motion opens up the opportunity to see familiar objects in a different way, to move our bodies differently, to explore chance, the absurd, and the untold.

Move forward, move together to find what can happen next.
