The paid opportunity for the successful artists will see their concepts turned into lanterns by the Moon Lantern workshop team and premiere at the popular Moon Lantern Trail from October 20 – 23, 2022.

OzAsia Festival, Australia’s contemporary arts festival engaging with Asia, is calling Asian Australian and/or First Nations artists, creatives, and designers to submit their most creative concepts for outdoor contemporary lanterns and/or lantern installations.

The paid opportunity for the successful artists will see their concepts turned into lanterns by the Moon Lantern workshop team and premiere at the popular Moon Lantern Trail from October 20 – 23, 2022.

In partnership with OSCA – Open Space Contemporary Arts, the OzAsia Festival team will be looking for concepts that explore Asia and Indigenous Australian connections or are inspired by Asian cultures and communities. Concepts should be welcoming and inclusive, eye-catching, and engaging, interactive, and innovative, and suit the Moon Lantern wireframe and printed fabric lantern style.

Applications are now open and will be assessed by OzAsia Festival’s Artistic Director Annette Shun Wah, programming and Moon Lantern workshop teams, in collaboration with OSCA’s creative team.

Applications close 9am, Monday 12 September 2022 and applicants will be notified of the outcome by Friday 16 September 2022.

Taking place from October 20 – November 6 2022, OzAsia Festival presents an exciting line-up of theatre, dance, music, visual arts, literature, film, food, and cultural events from across Asia and Australia. Returning for its second year, Moon Lantern Trail is an exciting celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival traditions and stories from across Asia. Be welcomed through the newly designed Gate of Grace, and enter the trail located at Tarntanya Wama/Pinky Flat, a showcase of lanterns – including the popular 40-metre-long Hong Kong Dragon – connecting Adelaide Festival Centre, Karrawirra Pari/River Torrens, and the surrounding parklands.
