Feast Festival, Adelaide’s annual LGBTIQ Arts and Cultural Festival is calling for Expressions of Interest from artists, performers and cultural creatives for their 2016 Festival.
Given the success of the Festival in 2015, with international superstar Conchita Wurst headlining, and a multitude of interstate and local artists participating, which saw over 48,000 people attend events across the 3 weekends, this year’s Feast Festival is set to be bigger, better and even more fabulous!
Feast presents artistically excellent, ground-breaking art projects involving artists and allies from a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds. With the substantial growth and increased Festival visibility in 2015 we are seeking emerging, mid-career and established artists to join us to continue the celebration of queer art and culture in 2016.
“2015 utilised an improved artist registration and development model under the guidance of Artistic Ambassador, Michael Griffiths, that enabled artists to maximise their exposure and boost ticket sales,” said Chair of the Board Mr Joshua Rayner.
“We are confident that this model will work again for 2016 and invite more people to participate in such a wonderful Festival that celebrates diversity, inclusivity and pride,” he said.
The closing date for Expressions of Interest is earlier than in previous years, due to the Festival dates being moved forward, minimising disruption to patrons attending Feast, ahead of the busy end of year period.
Expressions of Interest close Monday 25 April 2016 and you can find the form here.
Feast Festival 2016 will run from Friday 21 October until Sunday 6 November.
