RISING : Art Pass
To those who power our creative city. To the artists, writers, performers, musicians, animators, filmmakers, TV directors, designers, gaming visionaries, and producers. To the stage managers, set builders, techs, and general roustabouts. To anyone sketching an idea, putting on a gig or working with rolls of gaff dangling from their belt—the Art Pass is a thank you and invitation (with benefits!)
"Melbourne is the home for Australian artists and the many passionate individuals who work or study in the creative sector. RISING is the moment when we celebrate this very special creative city and we would like to invite you to be our guest.
If you are involved in the making of music, art, theatre, dance, games, screen content, literature, design or fashion, we want to salute you with some special benefits to RISING and celebrate the festival together.
Cheers thanks a lot."
— Hannah & Gid
