NUCA ANNOUNCES THE 2004 UNCO GRANTS!
NUCA [Network of UnCollectable Artists] is a brand new nation-wide affiliation connecting those who gravitate towards ephemeral projects, participatory experiences, illegal art actions, and activities that oddify everyday life.
NUCAâ€™s first big project was the creation of a set of bubblegum collector cards documenting Australiaâ€™s 50 Most UnCollectable Artists. Astronomical sales have resulted in a budget surplus, which NUCA is plunging back into the network â€“ NUCA now invites entries for the 2004 UNCO GRANTS!
From a pool of $2000, the 2004 UNCO GRANTS will be awarded to artists proposing worthy UnCollectable projects. So if you need that $0.40 for a box of matches, $2.90 for blutac or $540.30 for having an animal trained, we could help you out!
Send NUCA whatever is most appropriate in explaining your grand idea â€“ jpgs, actual photos, video or film, sketches, blueprints, plans, prototypes, rumours, or illustrative cakesâ€¦and as much info as you can about why you need the cash, and a bit of a breakdown as to how its to be put to use.
Mail: PO BOX 391 Newtown NSW 2042
REMEMBER! ENTRIES CLOSE HALLOWEEN 2004 [OCTOBER 31st]
