Submissions Now Open!

We are thrilled to be taking artist submissions for our spring 2020 festival. 

Having postponed our July festival due to public health restrictions, our 2020 festival has been rescheduled and re-imagined, designed to inject a little bit of joy back into the world this spring 

The festival will run 26 September – 10 October and is very different to what we had originally planned. Venues are different, dates are different and, let’s face it, the world is different. Thus, we’re now calling out for projects that suit our re-imagined format. 

So if you are a theatremaker, comedian, installation artist, storyteller, performance artist, dance troupe, drag queen, AV artist, musician, cabaret artist, roller derby squad, aerialist, augmented reality artist or something else great, and you want to make art in Bondi this spring, apply now!

Want more info? Take a read of our Artist Submission Information Pack and come along to one of our online Submissions Info Nights. More on that below.

Submissions close midnight  Monday 13 July, so jump to it! 

We can’t wait to hear from you.
