RISING's Call to Artists is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) for work presented in the 2024 festival and beyond.

APPLICATIONS CLOSED
Submissions are now closed and all applicants have been notified. Thank you to everyone who took the time to apply.

RISING takes place each June in Naarm, Melbourne. It is a contemporary cultural event that brings together site specific performance, large scale public art, music and ceremony for a diverse community.

This Call to Artists invites artists from around the country to submit their ideas for bold and ambitious new work.

We're seeking art and performance designed specifically for outdoor settings, ideas that will prompt powerful social experiences, and create transformative moments, from the epic to the intimate.

The Call: We're after big ideas for outdoor projects only to be presented from RISING 2024 onwards. Ultimately one to three projects will be commissioned. The selection process will be conducted by a group of peers, representing a spectrum of artists and industry.
