It's the five days of the year where you get to share your ideas, passions and saliva with like-minded crew from all over Australia. This year This Is Not Art is composed of four very special festivals, and a series of events combining talents from the across the board.
From its first moments as an Electrofringe and National Young Writers' Festival, the convergence has grown to provide an annual extravaganza with a variety of workshops, panels, performances, speakers and exhibitions challenging ideas about making art, making culture and making noise. We’ve have remained true to our core aims - innovating, developing and showcase emerging art and media forms.
And this year is no exception. Throw in some experimental indy theatre performances, artist networking and industry exposés, and some ripe social & political cheekiness, and you have a rough idea of what This Is Not Art Festival has become - the largest and most diverse annual media and arts festival in Australia.
