We are seeking short EOIs from people who work in the creative industries that would like to give a public demonstration to showcase their unique skills or products. Your demonstration can be something people watch or something they try out. It could be an exchange, collaboration or conversation.
The demonstration would be part of a three night event called ‘Futuropolis’ in early October at Testing Grounds. Think of a trade fair, scientific demonstration, infomercial or an expo – Futuropolis is like a world fair on a local scale. This is all about showcasing the amazing skills and knowledge that exists in Melbourne’s creative community. We want ideas that are fun and easy to understand. We want your demonstration to inspire people to dream about new possibilities for the future. This includes the First Nations, queer and culturally diverse knowledge that make our world a better and more interesting place.
Inventors, artists, crafters, designers, scientists, educators, cooks, builders, technicians, fabricators, technologists, and anyone who likes to innovate, are encouraged to apply.
We have $500 per demonstration, per night, to spend (inclusive of your artist fee, superannuation and production costs).
Submit an EOI via the form below. Applications due by Monday 9th of August 11:59pm.
PLEASE NOTE: Because of COVID restrictions, we are only accepting EOIs from people based in Victoria.
