2014 FEAST FESTIVAL EXPRESSIONS
OF INTEREST

Feast Festival 15th– 30th November 2014

Feast Festival is an annual LGBTIQ (Queer) Arts and Cultural Festival and was established in 1997.  Now in our 18th year we promote pride, community identity, inclusion and celebration which maximises community involvement and social inclusion.

Our aim is to present artistically excellent, ground breaking arts projects involving lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual, intersex and queer artists from a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds.

In 2014 the way the Festival is facilitated is changing.

The Artistic Program will no longer be ‘open registration’ and will be curated by our Artistic Director, Catherine Fitzgerald, in conjunction with our artistic coordinators (Geoffrey Parslow – Visual Arts, Lori Bell – Comedy, Alison Coppe – Literature, Helen Bock – Western Suburbs & Margie Fischer - Adelaide Hills).

The whole of the artistic program will be curated, meaning that you must be invited to be included in the festival program. The reason for this is to ensure that there is a balanced program of high quality work that has diverse content, genre, style and representation.  It is also to strive to improve our audience numbers by limiting the number of works presented and not ‘split our audience’ over a vast program.  This way it is hoped that our artists will be guaranteed good box office returns that will ensure proper remuneration.

There are three ways that you as an artists can be part of Feast:

  • Feast produces and/or presents events.
  • Feast co-presents with artists (sharing costs and box office).
  •  ‘Registration’ self-produced events. (the artist or promoter pay to be registered in the Feast program and take up front risk and all box office takings).

Community events, sporting events will still be ‘open registration’ as in the past, however we will still ask that you submit an expression of interest by the 21st of June.

We do not wish the Expression of Interest process to be arduous or time consuming, however the more information you can give us will help with our programming decisions.  It will also help when it comes time to enter your event onto our FARS (registration and ticketing) system.
