From a rock climbing project in Washington state, to a rock art installation in Sydney, Australia, these are just a few of the things that are going on in the rock climbing community.
And there is a good reason for this.
They’re all about capturing the sounds of rock climbing and making them accessible to the world.
“The best way to do that is to have someone with the skill level who can do it,” says Rob Cottrell, from the Rock Climbing Society, which runs the Rock Art and Rock Climber Festivals in Australia and New Zealand.
In addition to providing a platform for climbers to share their stories, they also provide an opportunity for other art, architecture and design teams to showcase their work.
This year’s Rock Art Project was launched last year and features a wall that is part rock, part sculpture and part rock art.
The idea is to recreate a typical rock climbing site in Australia using the best techniques of rock art and architecture.
But in order to do this, you need a good rock climbing team.
So who are the rock climbers?
For the Rock Artist’s Society, the definition of a rock climber is anyone who is “interested in rock climbing, the art of rock-climbing, rock art, and rock art making”.
It says you should be “extremely interested in rock, rock climbing or rock art” and have a passion for the art form.
And for the Rock Climb, that means “having a keen interest in the history of rockclimbs, the techniques used to build them and the rock art being produced in the area”.
For the Australian Rock Art Society, a rock artist is someone who “takes a risk and goes out into the world, takes on the challenge of creating art”.
The rock climbing society has a rock-art festival in Adelaide every two years.
The Rock Art Festivals and Rock Art Camps in Sydney and Perth are two more.
“These festivals, as well as Rock Art camps, are the best chance to see what is going on out there,” says Cottell.
But while these festivals may have a little bit of the feel of a “real rock festival”, they’re actually really just a combination of rock and art.
And although they may be based in Australia, there are some of the best rock climbing competitions in the world going on around the world in places like South America, Europe, the US and the UK.
And you can find some great rock art out there too, including in places as far away as Canada and Mexico.
“There are a lot of people out there who are really interested in this art form,” says Michael O’Connor, a lecturer in urban and regional planning at the University of Queensland, who studies the effects of the internet on social and economic change.
“It’s not just a hobby anymore.”
The Rock Artist Festival is held every two weeks in Sydney.
It is the largest rock art festival in the US.
But its most popular event is the Rock Arts Festival, which attracts around 1,500 rock climbers from around the country.
The site for the festival is a small town in western Sydney, in the middle of nowhere.
But it has a lot going for it.
“A lot of the events here are just going to be people having fun and meeting new people,” says O’Connor.
There is a big social vibe, there is plenty of free food and there is also a great music scene.
“This festival attracts all these people and it’s going to give them a chance to really enjoy the music, the food and the culture of Sydney and the state,” he says.
There are also rock climbers who go out into remote bushlands to work, with the rock being a good source of protein.
“And the fact that they have a sense of adventure and the ability to get out into these remote areas, and to get a sense for what’s out there, it’s really great for people who are into that sort of thing,” says Robert Seddon, a professor at the School of Design at the Australian National University.
And so for a small community like Sydney, rock climbers can become a real asset to the community.
Rock art is a very specific type of art, so its really important to have an understanding of how it was created and how it is used.
“They’re using it to represent and represent something that is very abstract and very un-representative of the natural world,” says Seddons.
“You can’t really do that in a traditional art context.
So what we are trying to do is to take those abstract rock drawings and turn them into something that can be easily understood.”
The most recent Rock Art Festival in Sydney is in March this year.
There will be a Rock Art Night, and a Rock Artist Weekend, in April.
And Rock Art Workshops will be held in the autumn.
“So if you are interested in getting involved with the
