Underbelly Arts 2017 Call for Applications


Underbelly Arts is seeking proposals for our 2017 Lab and Festival. We are looking for ambitious new works that speak to today’s audiences: projects that feel necessary, engage with the politics of our generation, express and engage with contemporary experiences and can demonstrate a high quality of artistic rigour from development through to execution.

Successful applicants will receive a three-week development residency that includes a scheduled program of activities, public programs and mentoring opportunities (the Lab), a financial contribution towards your project, and a significant amount of in-kind and production support, leading up to a presentation at Underbelly Arts Festival.



Applications for Underbelly Arts 2017 Lab and Festival are now closed.
