2014 SOLID dates announced

cyberTribe is pleased to announce that SOLID will be held near Ravenshoe in Far North Queensland from July 20 until July 22 inclusive in 2014.

SOLID is a two part event series. Solid Ideas is an invitational symposium for Indigenous practitioners in a residential bush retreat environment at Innot Hot Springs and Solid Screen is an International Indigenous Festival of the screen, open to the public.

Solid Screen will include a range of work from screen queens participating in the forum event that reflects upon the discussions and dialogue that Solid Ideas will interrogate. The screening, like the forum, responds to important transformations that have reconfigured opportunities for experimental arts, remix and media practice, internationally, in recent times.

Within the programs streams of activity, we aim to deliver Indigenous specific screen components to allow opportunities for Indigenous screen artists and artsworkers to develop professionally, develop greater understanding of new media and inter-disciplinary practices, and gain critical feedback on personal projects.

The Far North of Australia has a great depth of Indigenous arts practice, with a prolific visual arts industry, and we wish to compliment this strength and provide opportunities and experiences for Indigenous practitioners to engage with other mediums for expression, and also explore and document screen history in Television and Filmmaking. In the Far North there are also anumber of number of Indigenous artists already working in performance, installation, video and photography mediums.

SOLID will focus on proper solid ideas from talented visionaries and the approach will be the 'each one teach one' philosophy, where all the participants each facilitate a workshop in the yarning circle.

Planned to coincide with the timing of the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair in July, the international and national invited guests for SOLID will also be in attendance for CIAF events.
