Paint it Red 2016 Event Series
The story of the project
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
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.
Some of my other work
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!
