For Artists & Arts Workers

Sector Development

We have worked in close consultation with artists and organisations to respond to the needs of our local industry. Our Connect program delivers activities includes workshops, masterclasses, labs and conversations so a wide range of people are given special opportunities to interact with Festival artists and gain insights into who they are and the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of what they do.

Festival Lab

Festival Lab is an opportunity for emerging practitioners from across disciplines to get stuck into the big ideas in the Festival program, and to reflect on their own artistic practice.
