Why Hello There!!

We are currently on the look out for young and emerging artists from across the great southern to feature in a documentary that focuses on youth arts in the region.

You could be a part of this, We are looking for people between the ages of 12-26 that work with a range of different art forms including (but not limited to) Visual arts, Dance, Literature, Music, Theatre and Contemporary arts.

Brink Collective will be traveling around to towns in the Great Southern and visiting artists at the place they go to create, or at a place where they find inspiration. We will find out how the artists work, where their ideas/inspiration comes from, what they hope to do in the future and more

All of the interviews will then be made into a documentary that will be launched in Albany and Denmark (dates and venues to be confirmed)

The film will aim to celebrate and unearth young artists and encourage them to continue to pursue their art form. We hope that through this project will paint a positive picture of Young people in the Great Southern.

To Get Involved, Send an Email to with a few examples of your work attached or write a paragraph about what you do! It’s that easy!! Let us know if you’re interested  the deadline has been extended to Monday the 16 of may

This Project is supported by Great Southern Factor Inc. and Smith Construction.
