First program announcement for This is Not Art 2016 highlights focus on collaboration and cross-festival pollination.
This is Not Art (TiNA) celebrates Newcastle as a first rate creative city. Now in its 19th year, the festival has become an integral part of Newcastle’s arts calendar as young people from around the country converge on the city over the October long weekend to share ideas, meet like-minded creative and potential collaborators, and test work in a safe and supportive environment.
Longstanding co-presenters National Young Writers’ Festival (NYWF), Crack Theatre Festival and Critical Animals will this year be joined by Special Guests Hobotechno, a Newcastle based experimental arts collective. With a focus on engaging with the local community, activating multiple venues across the CBD and blurring the boundaries between writing, performance, visual arts and critical thinking, TiNA 2016 offers an array of workshops, panels, installations, performances and special events for those interested in exploring experimental and thought provoking contemporary arts.
