Immerse Festival – artists wanted

With more than 60 artists participating in the Knox Immerse Festival last year it’s hoped the 2019 Festival will be bigger and better than ever.

Immerse is an exhibition program outside the traditional confines of an art gallery, encouraging brave new ideas across all art disciplines and across all mediums from street art to sculpture, installation to projection and performance.

Developed and coordinated by Council in 2015, Immerse immediately became a celebrated arts event and will certainly surprise and inspire again in 2019.

Last year, more than 10,000 people engaged with the Immerse Exhibition program, with locals and visitors coming from outside of Knox, helping to stimulate the local economy while enjoying public art.

The program aims to make the arts more accessible by engaging with people as part of their everyday lives, outside of the traditional gallery space. It also provides artists the opportunity to expose their artwork to the public, collaborate with an experienced curator and potentially, win prize money.

The Immerse exhibition program runs for the entire month of September 2019.

We are seeking artists who will involve and inspire audiences to experience the joy of discovering art in unexpected places across Knox.
