We are committed to supporting local artists wherever we can and are endeavouring to create more platforms and opportunities for new and emerging artists and producers. The work must be full length performances or interventions of at least 1 hour duration. We will consider shorter pieces of work for cabaret and performance art and also encouraging new music and live club performance. We also seek work from visual artists for a variety of exhibitions throughout the year.
