If you have missed the 6 December show expressions of interest for Brisbane, Noosa, Sunshine Coast and online or are worried about the Ipswich and Moreton Bay deadlines, contact us, although we can not guarantee consideration..

Anywhere Festival is a festival of performance in the nooks and crannies anywhere but a stage in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Ipswich and Moreton Bay region or from anywhere as part of the Anywhere Online program.

Anywhere Festival is a revolution of the fringe festival concept aimed at producers and performance makers who are looking at creative ways to present works in primarily non traditional spaces  without the financial risk associated with independent producing in “for hire” spaces or within fringe festivals.

We do this by providing rent free non traditional performance spaces for you to perform in to remove venue costs. We assist you with creative development, marketing, producing as well as limiting the size of the festival to ensure your show has the best chance of success.

We work with reviewers and photographers, create awards with professional development prizes from major and established companies and individuals and provide a way to do a mini tour throughout South East Queensland.

As a reference point, the model is far closer to the supportive fringe model of many Canadian fringe festivals than the model adopted by the completely open access laissez-faire approaches of by Edinburgh and Adelaide.

Express interest AT THIS LINK with anything from just your contact details and an idea through to a fully realised show concept looking for new performance locations..
