Geelong After Dark 2019 – Call for Expressions of Interest!
Posted 9 August 2018
Because the Night: Geelong After Dark 2019
Geelong After Dark is on the hunt. Expressions of Interest are sought from artists; artist collectives and collaborations to explore the 2019 theme, Heighten Your Senses.
We all use our senses – be it through sight, hearing, taste, touch or smell – to navigate, explore and interact in our everyday lives. And then there is the sixth sense – our intuition or “ESP”, acquired through past experiences, surrounding influences and natural instinct.
Under the cover of dark, GAD2019 invites artists to propose projects that explore one or more of the senses through art that will inspire engage audiences. Artists are being encouraged to use the City as a blank canvas to explore new ways of experiencing existing spaces, buildings and laneways, reminding us that culture and creativity is a vital human expression.
To be held from 6pm Friday 3 May, Geelong After Dark is an annual artistic exploration of the heart of Central Geelong. It is about surrendering and embracing the unknown. A curated event, Geelong After Dark invites you to wander the laneways, hidden spaces and cultural buildings to experience interactive art; street performances; installations; music; exhibitions; projections.
In 2019, Heighten Your Senses and abandon what you know.
Geelong After Dark also celebrates our artists and the role they play in contributing to the Clever and Creative vision of Geelong
