SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR 2023
JOIN IN THE FUN OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA’S LARGEST OUTDOOR PAINTING FESTIVAL
The time for plein air painting is right now! It is currently the largest movement in art history and growing. Whether amateurs, hobbyists or professionals, thousands of artists are living the lifestyle of outdoor painting.
The Plein Air Down Under (PADU) Outdoor Painting Festival is held over the long weekend in September with multiple free community engagement activities including a host of workshops, exhibitions, artist talks, day and evening paint outs and artist demonstrations. PADU follows in the footsteps of international outdoor events such as those held in Ireland, the Netherlands, mainland USA and Hawaii, and since its inception in 2019, is gaining recognition globally.
During the 2022 PADU Festival, the Peel Region was filled with almost 200 local, national and international artists, attracting crowds to join in this art-loving experience, bringing revenue to the region as well as media coverage far and wide. With previous years having exceeded expectations, it is hard to deny an appetite exists for a niche outdoor painting festival.
BECOME A SPONSOR AND ENJOY THE REWARDS
We are seeking sponsorship support for Plein Air Down Under 2023 to develop creative experiences for the general public and celebrate the art of painting outdoors with skill development, Masterclasses, exhibitions, awards and prizes, free demonstrations and activities for all ages.
The universal language of art unites culture, age and ability and is a natural outlet for expression, stimulating our minds and creating community connection. From the generosity of funding and sponsorship, we can continue to deliver and improve PADU by providing more opportunities to connect community through the arts and offer inclusive activities to create engagement and participation in community life.
