Artist Call-Out

Preparations for the latest show are rolling along and it's now our pleasure to invite local visual artists to submit designs for inclusion in the show. See details below, and spread the word!

As part of the 2011 Heritage Weekend taking place on May 7th & 8th, the Weave Length team are creating a theatrical audio tour of the historic train station. The tours will invite audience members to participate in tasks along their way, including writing and sending a postcard.

Ballarat has long been a major tourist destination, served by its hugely important railway system, and as a result produced promotional material and postcards to advertise the city and its infrastructure, architecture and natural delights.

Weave Length are inviting local artists to submit designs for the postcards to be used in the station tours. Taking these old designs as inspiration, they are asked to create an image reflecting their Ballarat today, using for example- the station buildings and inhabitants, rail or the nearby vicinity of Lydiard St.

5-10 designs will then be chosen for inclusion in the show, also helping to promote the artists and their work. DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY APRIL 15TH. Please send submissions digitally in 4 by 6 proportions to, or feel free to get in touch with any questions.
