TiNA artist applications NOW OPEN!

300-PPIArtist applications for This is Not Art (TINA) 2015 are now open!

As one of the nation’s leading contemporary and emerging arts festivals, TiNA continues to create experimental environments where artists can test and exchange ideas that belong outside of institutions.

Produced by Octapod in Newcastle since 1998, TiNA has grown to become one of Australia’s leading contemporary and emerging arts festivals, creating spaces for artistic collaboration and discovery. Forever responding and evolving, TiNA promotes a vibrant combination of voices that celebrate and seek creative innovation. As a festival of multiple programs presenting dynamic and bold works, TiNA is the sum of its ever-changing parts.

Each year TINA is developed in partnership with co-presenters – arts collectives and organisations from across Australia who work at a programming level to develop the festival. In 2015 TiNA will present programs from Crack Theatre FestivalCritical Animals and National Young Writers’ Festival.

HOW TO APPLY

Artists should apply directly to the co-presenters:
