Our participants are selected from regional communities that will be participating in an exciting cross regional digital media project. Each participant already has some skill in digital media or film making, an interest in teaching and presenting, and a keen interest in the arts and local stories, which will be nurtured by us over the next three years in our Port to Port project.

  2. Return the application form / skills audit form by 7 Feb 2017

Leading Lights brings the participating artists together in a process designed to develop specialised skills in digital art / animation / projection, storytelling, community art, cultural development, remote collaboration, workshop facilitation and creative project facilitation, in which they maintain project momentum, strengthening relationships between several remotely connected partners, stakeholders and groups.

The training workshop will occur in two stages, beginning with an intensive training session on 16-19 February 2017 in Port Adelaide, and culminating in a practical residency in Goolwa in April 2017. Additional opportunities will then be developed to support the trainees to devise projects in THEIR town.

There are up currently 8 places in the program, of which four places have been filled. During the program, there are two levels of training.

1: Regional Digital Arts Collaboration: specialist skills involved in the production of projection art and digital arts projects.

2: Advanced mentorship in the high level process of devising and managing a community arts project featuring digital media public outcomes.

Interested regionally based participants who qualify will be able to apply for subsidised places and all interested participants will be able to gain support through our upcoming crowdfunding campaign.

PorttoPortThis project is part of illuminart’s ‘Port to Port’ statewide project, creating digital stories to connect port towns throughout South Australia with their past, present and future through the exciting portal of projection art.
