Break the boundaries. Bend the rules.
There are no limits as we unfurl Undercover Artist Festival 2017!
Artists, both emerging and professional, are encouraged to contribute to an immersive, enchanting and empowering experience that ignites our collective belief that art is for everybody.
We are set to ruffle feathers over two action-packed days! Queensland Theatre opens its doors from Friday 13 October to Saturday 14 October.
About Undercover Artist Festival
Undercover Artist Festival was the first arts and disability festival of its kind in Queensland.
Access Arts developed the idea in consultation with a range of artists experiencing disability, arts workers who work with artists experiencing disability and Access Arts Members. Collectively these artists and individuals expressed a need for greater presentation opportunities for professional performing artists with disability and better representation in the industry, particularly by Australia’s Major Performing Arts Companies.
With that, Undercover Artist Festival was born! Led by founding Festival Director Belinda Locke in 2015, artists from across Australia were able to showcase their work at a multi-arts festival accessible to all artists and audiences.
Undercover Artist Festival 2017 program vision is to curate a unique space and a program of works that embraces inclusivity, forefronts diversity, supports experimentation, and fosters inspiration and collaboration.
We are programming work that is inspiring, exciting, thought provoking, creative, untried, obscure and edgy.
We are including a range of acts, workshops and symposiums from our applications including theatre, dance, music, video art, symposiums, storytelling, workshops, live art, theatrical roving performances plus a full day of workshops with Australia’s leading contemporary arts practitioners.
The full line up is to be announced at our Fifth Annual Art Exhibition at KPMG on 6th September, 2017.
