River of Art - Lighting up the South Coast

The River of Art Festival will be back bigger than ever in 2022 with an exciting program of events over two huge weekends in September.

The Festival will host a diverse range of arts, music and performances from 16 to 25 September, concluding with a spectacular laser and light show called Luminous: Art After Dark on 24th September.

With just three months to go before the Festival kicks off, program entries are now sought from visual artists, performers and musicians as well as business and community groups who want to be part of the festival program. Entries close Saturday 25 June.

Entries for the River of Art Prize are open, with a prize of $2000 for the winning work. The winner will be announced at the gala opening of the River of Art Festival on 16th September at the Bay Pavilions in Batemans Bay, where the exhibition will run to the final day of the Festival on the 25 September.

The River of Art Festival is funded under the NSW Regional Events Acceleration Fund, Festivals Australia, and the Eurobodalla Shire Council.
