Opportunities for NT artists
Expressions of interest for the 2021 Festival are now open.
All Northern Territory artists are encouraged to apply.
How to Apply
We are on the hunt for new work or an existing concept with a new twist. This could be a first-time collaboration with other local artists or maybe you’re embarking into a new genre. We are looking for things that Darwin hasn’t seen yet, or at least not for a very long time – events that push boundaries and challenge perceptions.
Darwin Festival accepts proposals that are:
• across any art form
• works in progress or presentation-ready
• projects involving collaborations with other artists (both local and outside of the NT)
• youth or community projects
