The cold snap this week has really got us missing Summer. Keeping rugged up and indoors during the rainy weather is a safe option but it can become a little melancholy. Don’t worry… We have a few ideas for you to keep busy (and warm) until it’s time for Midsumma Festival 2020.

In this eNews, you’ll find some great upcoming external events we want to highlight as well as some fantastic artist opportunities and call-outs.

This week, we are really grateful to have received federal project funding from Australia Council for the Arts for a special initiative for the upcoming 2020 Festival. We’ll reveal more when we launch our festival program in mid-November but for now, we can tell you this project is going to be really exciting;  we can’t wait to share it with you.

And, if you are an experienced Production Manager, keep reading, we have an exciting new opportunity for you!
