ABC Online’s POOOL Project for digital artists
Submissions are invited from regionally based artists to be
part of POOOL, an ABC online initiative for digital artists. POOOL is
seeking ‘Digital Artbites’ from rural and regional artists reflecting
developments and explorations in new media arts. Contributions can be from
individuals, collaborations or artist collectives of any age, and can
include digital stills, mobile art, animations, music, documentaries,
audio, text and video art, etc. Each contribution can be complete or
excerpted works of up to a maximum of 5 minutes duration. Your submission
does not have to be especially created for the POOOL project, it can be
something you made 1-2 years ago. There is no fee for artists publishing
on POOOL. All works will be published on a ‘rolling basis’ between 1 July
2007 and 1 July 2008.
Contact: Sarah Last, POOOL Curator

Western Australia – Applications now open at PICA
PICA is now accepting applications for the 2007 Research and Development
fund and for the 2008 Exhibition and Studio program. The R&D fund offers
an opportunity to independent West Australian artists not currently
receiving recurrent government funding. The fund develops projects that
cross all disciplines, technologies and art forms toward the creation of
hybrid work. Applications are also open for PICA’s 2008 Exhibition and
Studio program. PICA is looking to work with artists whose work reflects a
contemporary approach; conceptually refined; experimental and innovative;
pursue new media and ideas; and exhibit technical innovation and
excellence. Through its Exhibition Program, PICA is particularly committed
to working on solo projects with Western Australian artists and also
welcomes proposals for local and interstate group shows.
Deadline: Applications for both close at 5pm, Friday 29 June, 2007.
