Not-for-profit Australia Art in Nature has today launched its animated music video featuring 33 young Australians’ artworks as the culmination of a national competition which saw 710 entries submitted from Groote Eylandt to Tasmania and everywhere in between.
The visually stunning video features an animated sequence of chosen artworks and draws inspiration from Australia’s natural landscapes. It’s accompanied by an original song composed by Australian singer-songwriter Corinne Gibbons and Ella Spira MBE, co-founder of global creative production company Sisters Grimm, who are behind the project.
The soundtrack also features narration from Aboriginal Elder and activist Oswald "Ossie" Cruse MBE AM (Uncle Ossie).
In a nod to the environmental heart of the project, which has been held for the first time in Australia, the video release comes on World Water Day.
Entries ranged from pre-schoolers to older teenagers and remote community school art groups who responded to the project’s theme of connecting art and the environment.
Australia is the second market to be a part of the Art in Nature movement, with Sisters Grimm launching the initial project in UAE, where more than 3.5 million around the world viewing the resulting music video.
