Presenting at Desert Festival
WHY PRESENT AT THE DESERT FESTIVAL?
The Desert Festival is a great way to deepen your involvement with central desert life and grow audiences for creative works. Our priority is for everyone involved: crew, artists, arts workers, photographers, audiences, supporters and volunteers to have a variety of culturally safe, positive and sustainable experiences.
LOADS OF SUPPORT.
While we can’t produce your event for you, we will support you to ensure your event is a success. Your registration fee gets you in the program, on the website, and speaking to an actual person.
Shows at the Hub usually have a small run of 2-3 performances and we recommend smaller seasons for other venues as well
As an open access festival, the Desert Festival programs first-timers to seasoned pros. We plan to continue building a Central Desert Family from all walks of life – meeting, collaborating, and enjoying each other’s art, skills, ideas and company.
The Desert Festival is a great opportunity to reach new audiences with your work.
SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION
DECIDING ON HUB OR GENERAL APPLICATIONS
The Desert Festival has two ways of presenting work, and two types of applications – Hub and General.
Hub applicants are applying for a spot in one of our Hub venues – The Desert Garden and Montes, for example. We run these spaces during the Desert Festival, and provide the infrastructure to make the venues work.
General applications, on the other hand, mean you get to organise whatever venue you want! You find the venue, organise the details, and then we program your show as part of the festival. Get creative, art can be presented anywhere!
