The annual TiNA Artist Call Out is now open. With an extended two month period for applications, artists are invited to apply directly to co-presenters National Young Writers’ Festival, Critical Animals and Crack Theatre Festival.
If your practice falls between the cracks of experimental theatre, contorts words or turns critical thinking on its head, TiNA may well be for you. The place where artists come together, share work, test ideas, meet new people and explore the Newcastle CBD. As one of Australia’s leading contemporary and emerging arts festivals, TINA provides a national platform for experimental and emerging arts practices. Proudly Novocastrian, TiNA celebrates Newcastle as a first-rate creative city. 2017 marks a big milestone for TiNA as it celebrates its 20th birthday.
The extended Artist Call Out period will ensure that more people find out about the opportunity to present at TiNA over the October long weekend in Newcastle. Artists can book in a chat with Co-Directors during the Call Out period to get feedback and advice about their proposals - this could be a coffee catch up, skype call or via email.
TiNA Producer Christina Robberds says “Each year the TiNA co-presenters explore a different theme. Across the programs in 2017 is a strong interest in diversity, the development of new work and critical thinking around arts practice. As TiNA celebrates its 20th anniversary the festival model remains true to its mission of providing a national platform that supports artists to take risks, experiment, and extend the boundaries of their artforms and practices.”
Artist applications close 31 March at midnight. For more information about how to apply, head to thisisnotart.org.
