Festival Lab

Immerse yourself in the heart of the Festival

Festival Lab is an opportunity for emerging practitioners from across disciplines to get stuck into the big ideas in the Festival program, and to reflect on their own artistic practice.

About this opportunity

Festival staff curate an intensive program of events for the Lab, responding to the Festival and opportunities that arise to engage with companies and artists. This may include performances, discussions, workshops, gallery tours and attendance at rehearsals.

Importantly, the Lab creates an opportunity to find community from within the cohort itself, creating relationships with artists and practitioners from other disciplines, over an intensive period of discussion and discovery.

Perth Festival 2021 is locally focussed, a celebration of the artists and companies making work on Noongar boodjar. Through the Lab, participants will be invited to connect with local arts industry representatives and the Festival team, providing insight into the way a Festival is programmed and the context in which it operates.

There are no outcomes associated with the Lab. This is an invitation to make space for contemplation and inquiry, and a vehicle for connecting with artists working in different ways – but not a skills development program.

Applications for Festival Lab 2021 have now closed.
