Arts for everyone, right where they live.
We believe there is a better way for performers and producers than waiting for rare slots in theatres and losing life savings presenting in fringe festivals where there are more performances than audiences members and the entire budget goes on venue hire and paying for everything but the creation of the work…
Anywhere proposed dates in 2015 are:
- Mackay-Isaac 13-22 March
- Parramatta 8-17 May
- Brisbane 7-24 May
- Frankston August/September (dates TBC)
Expression of Interest (EOI) are free for all festivals and CLOSE 4th December annually.
