The Festival runs an open-access policy where anyone can put on an event as long as you register by the 31 October 2013. This encourages artistic experimentation as well as participation from a wide variety of artists, producers and creatives.
We recommend intending artists read the Artist Information Pack on the Festival website which explains how the Festival works, what’s new in 2014, and how to apply for venues and funding grants.
