South Side Festival – Frankston City’s new 2022 signature event – will be held from May 6-15 next year. Transforming the city with a comprehensive program of thought-provoking art, cultural, heritage and food experiences across multiple venues and spaces, the festival will also provide opportunities for existing events, businesses and locally grown content to flourish.
Expressions of interest are being sought from artists and creatives to present projects or events for the festival’s Locally Grown Content and Large Scale Community Engagement categories, with the successful applicant in each receiving $25,000 and council support to present their project. For the former category, the project must be produced by an organisation based in or strongly connected to the municipality, while organisations outside the municipality can produce a project for the latter category but must engage with the community in the development and delivery of the project.
More South Side Festival opportunities for artists will be announced soon, including details of four $5000 artistic commissions.
