It’s the day after the final day of the 2015 Brisbane Anywhere Festival and we wanted to say a huge thank you to you for being a part of the festival.

We hope you were able to achieve what you wanted to achieve and that it has been a positive experience.

This was the first year in which the number of productions was intentionally reduced from the previous year. We did this so that we could give you the best experience and not get into the festival rut of simply trying to have more shows each year for bragging rights.

The good news is that even with less shows and performances than 2014, the early figures show more people saw Anywhere Festival shows and audience feedback has rated it as the best so far.

For those who have not had their box office paid out, check your emails as a confirmation email asking for you to fill out a participant survey and provide payment details will be with you already. It is important

We also have an audience survey out at the moment and it is at

Three lucky winners will get to choose their favourite photo from those taken by Anywhere Photographers and have it blown up onto canvas – if you saw a show, make sure you fill out a survey as well.

There is also a competition for you: we will be giving away two Anywhere t-shirts or a canvas with a photographic print to the Anywhere Festival production that gets the highest percentage of their audience to respond to the survey. Entries close midnight Monday 1st May, so get the word out to your fan base to back up what we have sent to all ticket purchasers.

We will release more detailed figures once we have collated everything, but until then, from Alex, Ruby and I, thank you once again and we’ll be in touch soon with some exciting plans for next year.
