Made. In. Newcastle. is a joint undertaking between the Newcastle Art Space and Curious Legends. Funded by Newcastle City Council’s Special Business Rates program, our aims are simple: get money out to professional artists to make great art, and increase foot traffic to local businesses in the Newcastle CBD.

Over 4 months from December 2020 through March 2021, we’ll be working with a whole slew of talented artists and local businesses to create inspiring happenings throughout downtown Newcastle. Musicians performing on the street, script readings in bars, art workshops, art installations, tiny mural paintings, giant puppets, indigenous art, street theatre – we want to see your ideas on a wide range of great art happenings!

Want to get involved? We need your input! If you’re an artist local to Newcastle, or small business in the CDB, we’d love to hear from you, and want to see your ideas around making art happen that will enliven downtown Newcastle. Made. In. Newcastle. is in the early planning stages, and we’re accepting artist expressions of interest applications until midnight on November 18th.
