Alice Upcy­cle Art Prize – entries now open

Tue February 16 @ 8:00 am - Thu May 20 @ 5:00 pm

Alice Springs Town Coun­cil is excit­ed to announce the inau­gur­al Alice Upcy­cle Art Prize! This addi­tion to the Alice Springs arts cal­en­dar is an ini­tia­tive from Council’s Cli­mate Action Plan that cel­e­brates artis­tic inno­va­tion whilst pro­mot­ing envi­ron­men­tal awareness.

As a sculp­tur­al exhi­bi­tion and art prize, the pro­gram will show­case the cre­ativ­i­ty and sculp­tur­al art­works of Cen­tral Aus­tralian artists, work­ing with recy­cled and repur­posed mate­ri­als at a time where reduc­ing, reusing and recy­cling is more impor­tant than ever before.

The exhi­bi­tion venue will be at the Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre – a retail recy­cling cen­tre and sal­vage yard where you can drop-off, redis­cov­er and pur­chase sec­ond-hand, reused and preloved goods.

With a total prize pool of $7,000, prize cat­e­gories include: excel­lence in weld­ed and non-weld­ed pieces; a People’s Choice Award; and, an award to the artist whose work most cre­ative­ly and effec­tive­ly com­mu­ni­cates aware­ness of the impacts of cli­mate change in Cen­tral Australia.

Entries close 5pm, Thurs­day 20 May, with the awards night on Fri­day 11 June 2021. Short­list­ed works will be exhib­it­ed until Sat­ur­day, 26 June 2021, at the Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre, Com­mon­age Road.
