Hear mentors Lyle Chan and Chris Sainsbury introduce To Country.

NEW in 2022! In addition to Artology’s Fanfare program, in 2022 we have a new opportunity called ‘To Country‘ for young people aged 12-23 years to create a musical ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ in a short one-minute orchestral piece of music. Entrants can enter both Fanfare and To Country to go in the running to have their piece performed and workshopped with professionals. If you love writing music, this is an exciting opportunity for you! Find out more, here.

Now in its second year, the Very Short Film Festival is open to storytellers of all ages from anywhere in Australia. Themes and genres are not prescribed but completely open to the imagination of the entrants.

Meet our mentors and judges: Academic leader, screenwriter and creativity advocate Nell Greenwood; artist Rocco Fazzari, well known for his cartoons and illustrations in the Fairfax press; writer and editor Leta Keens; Australian director, writer and editor Justin Kurzel; one of Australia’s most eminent cultural figures Leah Purcell; and independent producer Bain Stewart.

In October, Artology partnered with the Adelaide Youth Orchestras to workshop eight fanfares by young composers from across Australia. With the guidance of conductor Luke Dollman, each composer heard their fanfare and offered feedback before it was recorded. Congratulations to Bonnie Cook (WA), Annika Ganesh (SA), Cassie Parke (NSW), Charlie Wells (SA), Floyd Taylor (Tas), Phillip Cullen (NSW), Raphael Luxton (WA), and Will Hartley-Keane (Vic).
