CALL OUT FOR SUBMISSIONS TO BE PART OF 2022 CULTURAL PROGRAM

The Scenic Rim Regional Council (SRRC) is looking for providers to deliver projects, exhibitions, performances, workshops, talks and school holiday activities as part of our regular programming.

Our theme for 2022: Understanding our world through the arts and sciences.
 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 9am, Tuesday, 5 October 2021

Submissions are being sought for our program for 2022 that link the arts and sciences and help us to understand our world.  Creative ideas and projects that extend traditional art forms such as poetry, performance, visual arts, film, storytelling and dance through the use of technology, ecological and other sciences are especially encouraged.

Creativity and innovation are achieved through imagination and curiosity, core elements where both the arts and the sciences align. 

Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses ... learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else.  -  Leonardo DaVinci
