A UNIQUE CREATIVE EXPERIENCE
6 & 7 NOVEMBER 2021
What is CCART?
It is the short name for The Condamine Country Art and Craft Trail. We want you to meet our fantastic local artists and collectives as well as visiting our beautiful towns, big and small, along the way. Our event links with the Granite Belt Art and Craft Trail (GBART) to create 2 weekends which showcases the awesome creativity of our region.
WHERE IS CONDAMINE COUNTRY?
The Condamine Country name encompasses the towns that sit along the upper reaches of the Condamine River. The headwaters of the river rise on the slopes of Mount Superbus, part of the Main Range, before passing through Cambanoora Gorge. The river flows through the towns of Killarney and Warwick before heading west to eventually become the Darling River. Townships that are featured on our trail in 2020 are Allora, Freestone, Leyburn, Deuchar, Loch Lomond, Killarney and Warwick.
Our trail is the little sister to the outstanding Granite Belt Art and Craft Trail (29, 30 & 31 October 2021).
WHO CAN APPLY TO BE ON THE TRAIL? (APPLICATIONS FOR THIS YEAR HAVE CLOSED)
Artisans (including performing artists) residing on the Southern Downs north of Dalveen can be part of CCART 2021. To apply go to our GET INVOLVED page.
There are three categories for applications:
INDIVIDUAL - Artisan opening their private studio/workspace.
COLLECTIVE – Group of Artisans sharing a venue such as a small community hall (or similar) as their collective studio.
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE – Artisan at a venue (e.g. restaurant, business, street etc), other than their private studio.
THE INAUGURAL CCART IN 2020
Our event provides an opportunity for Southern Downs artists to join an art trail who do not live on the Granite Belt so can not be included in GBART. We are all part of one region but we understand that there is a lot of distance and difference between us. Our two trails CCART and GBART will work together to create an amazing and unique opportunity for visitors spread over three weekends.
