New Light 2023

Applications are now open for New Light 2023!

With the support from the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT), New Light 2023 will showcase experimental and diverse moving image works by First Nations artists.

Through a national call out, New Light will feature new selected works by First Nations artists, exploring compelling and complex concepts. The commissioned artworks will be displayed on the outdoor screens at the King William Road entrance to Adelaide Festival Centre in July 2023 as part of Illuminate Adelaide.

Applications for New Light 2023 have now closed.

Who Can Apply?

New Light calls for applications from First Nations artists nation-wide, seeking to commission a selection of artists or groups to produce experimental moving-image works with a duration of up to one minute. Artists with video production skills are encouraged to apply to produce new, quality content, to be presented on Adelaide Festival Centre’s outdoor screens. The resulting work must be suitable for public display.

We encourage artists and groups at any stage of their artistic practice to apply (emerging, mid-career, and established).

Successful artists/artist groups will receive a fee of $2,000 (ex. gst) to produce the work, inclusive of artist fees, production costs, and materials. All copyright will remain with the artist.

The final artworks will be mapped specifically to the outdoor screens by a professional production company.
