We are thrilled to announce La Mama’s BANKSIA FESTIVAL, an event to re-open our iconic theatre on Faraday Street later this year. We are seeking artists to welcome, commemorate and celebrate our return home, and are inviting expressions of interest from the diversity of artists that our community represents. EOI’s close April 5th. Read more about it HERE.
As we plan for our rebirth at Faraday Street, we are also looking for three exceptional producers to join our team. More details below.
After fire, the Banksia flower comes back stronger and more beautiful than ever. Inspired by the theme ‘Rebirth’, La Mama’s BANKSIA FESTIVAL seeks artists to welcome, commemorate and celebrate the return of our iconic home.
This is a festival for young and old, for the uninitiated and the seasoned. Celebrating creativity in all its possibilities and people from all walks of life, we are inviting expressions of interest from the diversity of artists that our community represents.
