Venue Info

We need venues to make Made. In. Newcastle. awesome! Like to be involved?

Made in Newcastle is a festival of events from the Newcastle Art Space and Curious Legends running across a four month period from December 2020 through March 2021. We will be activating spaces and venues in the Newcastle CBD with small scale performances and visual arts activities. The funding has been provided through an SBR grant from the City of Newcastle. Our aim is simple – get foot traffic back to local businesses in downtown Newcastle, and provide funds to pay professional artists for their work. Expressions of Interest from Artists are now being received and we are looking to allocate artist activities to businesses.

So… sounds great, but what could this involve? We’re open to any small-scale activations and ideas involving professional artists. This could be:

  • Music Performances
  • Poetry Readings
  • ‘Live Art’ creation (think creating a mural or painting at your venue)
  • ‘Human Chandelier’ aerial performance art
  • Illuminated Puppets
  • Multimedia Projections
  • Theatre Performances
  • Art Exhibitions

In short – whatever you can think of that brings business back to your venue, and supports professional arts practice. If you already have an idea of what you’d like to see, great! If not, we’ll match you with a participating artist suited to your business. All events will be promoted widely, and designed to get people visting YOU.

Keen to get involved? Awesome! Expressions of Interest from businesses and venues are open until December 1st. There is no form – simply email us at the details below!
