This is Not Art

Exhibition and Shows Festivals and Celebrations

28 Sep 2017 to 1 Oct 2017

This Is Not Art – known to friends as TiNA – is a national contemporary arts festival with a focus on independent, emerging and experimental arts practices. Celebrating Newcastle as a creative city, the festival takes place annually over the October long weekend. Since 1998 thousands of people have gathered in Newcastle’s CBD each year to share ideas, test work, and meet like-minded creatives and potential collaborators.

The festival is made up of approximately 150 events, ranging from panel discussions to hands-on workshops, performances to parties. It provides a space for artists, performers, writers, thinkers, theatre-makers, dancers, and tech-heads to gather, play, share ideas and innovate. Most events are free and many invite audience participation.

A number of programming streams converge under the umbrella of the TiNA festival. This year co-presenters include the National Young Writers Festival, Critical Animals and Crack Theatre Festival.
