The Desert Festival ⏤ a fleeting utopia, a glimpse into possible futures for Central Inland Australia. Aug 18 – Sept 7

Presenting At DesFest

WHY PRESENT AT THE DESERT FESTIVAL?
The Desert Festival is a great way to deepen your involvement with central desert life and grow audiences for creative works. Our priority is for everyone involved: crew, artists, arts workers, photographers, audiences, supporters and volunteers to have a variety of culturally safe, positive and sustainable experiences.
LOADS OF SUPPORT.
While we can’t produce your event for you,  we will support you to ensure your event is a success. Your registration fee gets you in the program, on the website, and speaking to an actual person. No long wait times here!
MANAGEABLE COMMITMENT.
Shows at the Hub usually have a small run of 2-3 performances and we recommend smaller seasons for other venues as well. This means your show will play to a packed out house and also gives you time to participate in the festival as a presenter, audience member and workshop participant.
COMMUNITY.
As an open access festival, the Desert Festival programs first-timers to seasoned pros. We plan to continue building a Central Desert Family from all walks of life – meeting, collaborating, and enjoying each other’s art, skills, ideas and company.
GREAT AUDIENCES.
The Desert Festival is a great opportunity to reach new audiences with your work. The Red Centre’s audiences are vocal, fun-loving and supportive. To thrive in the desert you need to be adaptable and good relationships are crucial ⏤ support others and you will be supported!
