Hosted Event

The festival seeks applications from organisations and individuals interested in organising and hosting their own event, exhibition or performance as part of the 2018 River of Art Festival program.

Open Studios

Register to become one of the festival’s Open Studios – presented each year in partnership with the Eurobodalla Shire Council. This festival favourite invites visitors to go behind the scenes and discover working studios across the region. It provides unique opportunities for arts patrons to meet with artists and to purchase works directly.

Art on Parade

This festival category features artists exhibiting their work in local businesses, shopfronts and cafes. Art on Parade comes alive when artists and businesses collaborate – finding a common theme and connection. You need to confirm your exhibition with your local business to register in this category.

River of Art 2018 Art Prize and Land of Many Waters Exhibition

Applications for these festival events will be invited in early 2018. Further details and entry forms will be made available on the River of Art website.
