Expressions of interest will be evaluated as they arrive until the festival is full of really cool ideas or by 19 December, whichever happens first.

There is no cost to express interest and you can enter more than one idea or talk to us first about your ideas.. 

Once your expression of interest has been given the thumbs up, you have until mid February (see key dates) to work with us to lock in all your show, venue and scheduling details.

All shows selected in the curated feature shows receive an estimated $7,083 of support from Anywhere Festival through local specific print and online program and marketing, creative development support, industry and local networks, Anywhere Awards eligibility, permitting for public spaces, tools and access to the broader festival network a much more.

We are aiming to make Anywhere as flexible as possible to work for emerging and established acts. We will provide an invitation to the festival (or a no or questions to answer) with a proposal to make it possible for you to take create risks without the financial risks as part of Anywhere Festival.
