Archived: Paint it Red 2016 Event Series: a collaborative music and visual art event series held at Jugglers Art Space in Fortitude Valley

Paint it Red 2016 Event Series

The story of the project

Paint it Red is a collaborative music and visual art event series held at Jugglers Art Space in Fortitude Valley. Programs combining chamber music, jazz, improvised, folk and experimental music are presented in an intimate and contemporary gallery space in conjunction with visual exhibitions featuring works from local Brisbane art students and professionals. Created as a forum to both celebrate and further unify Brisbane’s thriving musical and artistic communities, Paint it Red has provided a vibrant and eclectic meeting place for musicians and artists since 2013. Improvised ‘reaction art’, where an artist will create original visual works live to either composed or improvised music, has become a staple of Paint it Red, and has resulted in the creation of over half a dozen original art works now owned by galleries and attendees.

In 2016, Paint it Red is aiming ever higher to bring together our communities in musical and artistic celebration of ever-increasing standard. Over a five-event series, we will feature main music artists Paul Dean, Stephen Emmerson, Vanessa Tomlinson, Steve Newcomb, John Hoffman, and Graeme Jennings, and a host of other musical and artistic personalities in collaborative concerts that will also include upcoming members of Brisbane’s youth chamber music, improvisation, and visual art scenes.

2016 is going to be our biggest year yet and we need your help to make it the best it can possibly be. Paint it Red has so far been run on a shoe-string budget and we now want to give you the best we can – but we can’t do it alone. By contributing to Paint it Red in 2016, you’ll be helping to perpetuate a growing movement of musical and artistic collaboration, and helping to shape the future direction of that movement.

This project means a lot to us, and we know that it’s already been both a wonderful opportunity and an excellent forum for many young artists and musicians to perform and share themselves and their art with their own communities, and that of other artists. Paint it Red is here to stay – help us to make that a promise! 

How the funds will be used

Of the $4000 we hope to raise, half will be used to cover venue hire fees which will allow us to secure use of the Jugglers Art Space for the 2016 series. The other half of the money will be used to remunerate the featured and supporting artists on each bill, as well as the visual artists involved. Money will also be set aside to contract audio and visual personnel for the evenings so as to provide photos and audio recordings of each event for both audiences and artists.

Up until now, all Paint it Red performers and visual artists have appeared out of goodwill, and it’s now time to step up our game. This will mean bigger names on each program, and the possibility of new and exciting collaborations. As our story grows, so do the costs associated with each event, so raising this capital will allow us to reach for the stars in 2016 and help us to deliver our most exciting series to date.

Our biggest challenge for our 2016 series at Jugglers is funding. We have a great venue, a stellar line-up of featured musicians and visual artists, and a drive to deliver our best year yet of collaborative events. We have learnt a lot and grown enormously from the last couple of years of Paint it Red, so help us to make this next year incredible!
