Salt & Poppet Theatre are on the hunt for shop front windows for art!
If your shop front is within the City of Moonee Valley and is closed due to current Covid 19 restrictions, we want to hear from you.
Leave a Ghost Light On will see award winning puppetry artist Theresa O’Connor, create miniature shadow puppet theatres designed to suit businesses / activity centres across the community. Derived from theatre traditions of leaving a ghost light on while the venue is not in use, we are taking this concept to the streets of Moonee Valley to share a beacon of light in selected window. Lit simply by a desk lamp from behind, these creative artworks will be a framed silhouette image, reminding our community that we will reopen when restrictions are eased.
If you would like to be considered for an artwork, please fill in the expression of interest form below. It will take approximately 5 minutes of your time. If selected, all you will need to do is accept delivery of your artwork, display the artwork and a provided artist statement (no larger than an A4 page) in your window for passerby to see, and provide a lamp to sit behind the artwork. Your business / activity centre will then be advertised on Salt and Poppet Theatre’s Website, Instagram and Facebook pages.
Expressions of Interest are assessed as they are received. Therefore we strongly advise to apply sooner rather than later, as shop fronts windows are quickly being selected.
Leave a Ghost Light On is supported by Moonee Valley City Council Covid 19 Arts Recovery Grants.
