It’s been a while. In the later months of 2017 we’ve been guest hosting Word in Hand and some events for Newtown Festival.
In other news, we’re getting ready for the 2018 festival. This means sorting out our creative committee, preparing to do an artists’ callout, and planning for the program ahead.
Good news: we’ve received some funding! The Inner West Council has awarded us a small Arts & Culture grant, and we’ve been awarded the NSWWC Emerging Literary Organisation grant! This means we can start to schedule next year’s festival and satellite events, knowing we have a bit of financial support to pay the artists and still keep ticket prices low.
Thank you to everyone who has supported this festival during its short life so far! Looking forward to building an excellent program with you in 2018.
