THIS IS A CALL, This Is Not Art - Artist Callout / by Kian West

This is Not Art (TiNA) 2017 Artist Call Out now open: 1 February - 31 March. Artists are invited to apply directly to co-presenters National Young Writers’ Festival, Critical Animals and Crack Theatre Festival. As one of Australia’s leading contemporary and emerging arts festivals, TINA provides a national platform for experimental and emerging arts practices. Go to thisisnotart.org for more info. 

 

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.   

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 art-forms and practices.”
