This is Not Art is a supercharged convergence of writers, performers, thinkers, independent musicians and industry, creative researchers, electronic artists, dilettantes and DIY culture makers in a showcase featuring over 400 local, national and international artists.
In partnership with: Crack Theatre Festival, Critical Animals, Electrofringe, National Young Writers’ Festival and Sound Summit, we present Australia’s most exciting and emergent exhibitions, screenings, performances, panels, workshops, talks, gigs, interventions, live art and special events.
Attracting an audience in excess of 3000, TINA takes place annually in Newcastle, NSW, over the first weekend in October.
To apply to be part of the 2011 TINA Program, artists should submit directly to the individual sub-festivals listed above. Application forms can be found on their respective websites, listed below. Each festival has a particular curatorial bent, ranging across theatre, creative research, electronic arts, writing and independent music. If your artistic vision or proposed event neatly traces one of these orbits, you know what to do.
If you’re certain you don’t fit into one of the sub-festivals, you can apply directly to the TiNA Coordinating team, using this very form.
You can also apply directly to TINA for proposals so phenomenal they cannot be contained within the purview of a single sub-festival. These might include special events, exhibitions or large projects. But keep your hat on. The TINA Coodinating staff have no resources to develop projects, however cross festival initiatives will be pitched by TINA staff to the sub-festivals for programming guidance and recommendation.
If you don’t have an application, per se, but would like to be involved in the festival as a volunteer, there will be a callout for various positions later in the year. Sign up to the mailing list at thisisnotart.org
and watch your inbox.
