Call for Expressions of Interest – Visual Artists – deLight

Ipswich City Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from local visual artists and visual artists with a connection to the Ipswich region to include their work/s in deLight – a major projection project for 2021 SPARK Ipswich – the reimagined Ipswich Festival.

To express your interest please complete the EOI Form below. If you have a specific work/s that you would like considered for inclusion in the project please attach an image/s with your response.

deLight Overview

Over the 11 days of SPARK Ipswich (8 – 18 July 2021), St Mary’s Church will be activated with a major projection work – deLight – that profiles visual artists and reflects the culture of Ipswich, its people and places.

Artists will be selected through an Expression of Interest process and will include local visual artists or artists with a connection to the region.

All local artists including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and artists from diverse cultures are encouraged to apply. Given the project’s partial alignment with the dates for 2021 NAIDOC Week, applications from First Nation artists will be highly regarded.

A specialised projection artist has been engaged to map and project the selected artworks onto St Mary’s Church. Artworks may include paintings/drawings, animations and photography.

A different artist will be projected and profiled each night of the festival.  Selected artists will receive a payment of $1,000 for use of their artwork in the deLight project.
