Desert Fest 2017 will be on between the 18th August – 7th September
We will soon (April) be opening our EOI process.
You will have two options:
1) Apply as part of an open programming framework, into one of our registered venues, ( or BYO venue) and input an image, text, the ticketed price you need for your show, genre and other information for the program
2) Apply to be part of our curated hub, where priority will be give to NT based artists. This process closes early so you can still go into open program if you are unsuccessful. National and international artists will only be considered if:
- You are proposing a developmental application that builds the local NT arts and culture industry, with a performance or show as an outcome
- You have the capacity to offer at least one NT based artist (or production crew) a paid opportunity in your project
If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to ask.
Great things got shaved down at Alice Springs Public Library this weekend. Red Hot Arts was there to help, with Artistic Director Ben Fox applying his barber/hairdresser skills.

This worked out pretty well and we learned a lot, tomorrow morning’s set will be even better.
If you want your Arts and Cultural event promoted like this, we have a template, some specs and a special price of $66/poster. Events can be promoted for up to a month.
Wall is open to all events that are promoted through What’s Hot and in Central Australia

This program seeks to strengthen and grow the independent arts and cultural sector in Australia by granting money to ensembles/collectives/groups and organisations that are highly connected within their sector, and producing excellent work. In 2016 the Sidney Myer Fund (SMF) and Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (TFFF) will collaborate to support Queensland and Northern Territory artists and arts organisations. Applications will open on 9 March 2016 and close at the end of the day on 10 April 2016. – See more at:
