Opportunity for Local Artists to Exhibit

60,000 Artists

Watch This Space (WTS) and Arid Lands Environment Centre (ALEC) are holding a fundraiser exhibition to raise awareness of Climate Change and support the work both organisations contribute to the community.

You are invited to create and exhibit an artwork that responds to the article: Why Climate Change Needs 60,000 Artists . This article suggests that artists are an integral component of communicating the implications of climate change more effectively to the broader community.

We are asking artists of all mediums to contribute to this collaborative exhibition; painters, photographers, sculptors, woodworkers, textile artists, poets, musicians, performance and multi media artists.

Artists can choose to keep a percentage of the sale profits or generously donate all proceeds to ALEC and WTS.

Applications due: Monday 17 April

Give Now and help our not-for-profit organisation

While Watch This Space is supported by the NT Government to operate on a day-to-day basis, our projects are self-funded and are often undertaken with little to no funding. More assistance would mean stronger projects with more effective and influential artistic, cultural and social outcomes. It would mean more support for our artists and their work.

Our organisation strives to provide as much assistance as possible to the groups and individuals whose practices enrich our communities, and your support could make a huge difference.

Donate now…

Your support, whether small or large, will be making the greatest difference.
