Applications are open from 1 February – 31 March 2017The time has come again for our annual call for artist applications for Crack Theatre Festival as part of This is Not Art, happening 28 Sept – 1 Oct, 2017 in Newcastle.We’re excited to be back in Newcastle for another year and another Festival, but we’ve got a few changes in store. Here they are: In 2017, we will select a smaller number of works and minimise technical and venue needs to allow us the resources to deepen our level of engagement with our selected artists. We’re creating breathing space so that artists and audiences alike have the time and energy to wholly engage with the program, the wider This is Not Art Festival, and hang out at the beach all day with friends.
