Signal’s Expression of Interest Program for 2012-13 is now closed. If you would like to be contacted about the 2013-14 program please join our artists mailing list.
Signal’s Expression of Interest Program provides an opportunity for artists to propose new projects to undertake at Signal as part of the ongoing creative arts program for young people.
New ideas for creative arts programming are welcome from artists and organisations of all disciplines. The initial proposal process is easy – just tell us your idea and an indication of the fees and materials you require.
If selected you will then have the opportunity to pitch your idea straight to a panel that includes the Signal Advisory Panel, staff and young people. The panel’s job is to assess the idea based on the requirements detailed below and, if you are successful, the Signal team will partner with you to realise your project.
Your project must:
- have artists and young people as co-creators. Young people are driving, shaping and creating the project alongside professional artists
- have the creative process as central and build in time for self reflection and evaluation
- be delivered at Signal; outreach projects will be considered, however a large component of the project must be delivered at Signal
- be clearly expressed and achievable
- have the capacity to integrate into the Signal public program and special projects such as Signal 37
- be innovative, inspiring and embrace diversity.
Artists or organisations representing all art forms are eligible to apply to be a part of the Signal Expression of Interest Program.
Signal welcomes proposals from young artists aged 18 years and above. Indigenous artists and artists from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
The Signal Expression of Interest Program supports artist fees and material expenses up to $20,000.
