NT Artists


Darwin Festival is passionate about connecting with the cultural and artistic diversity of its unique home. The call out for Territory artists to share their ideas or proposals for consideration for the 2018 Festival will open later in 2017.

Darwin Festival is a fully curated (invitation-only) festival. We look to connect with local artists, companies and arts workers who have ideas, works in progress or finished works.

Darwin Festival accepts proposals that are:

  • across any art-form, including: theatre, music, dance, puppetry, visual arts, interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary
  • works in progress or performance-ready
  • projects involving collaborations with other artists (both local and outside of the NT)
  • Youth or Community projects

Applications open 4 September and close on 11 December. Successful applications will be notified by February 2018. 

Proposals should include:

  • an outline of your project/concept – maximum one page, minimum one paragraph
  • brief biography of the people involved
  • support materials in the format of electronic files or links to online content
  • NT address, email address and phone number
