This is Not Art Festival 2012 Program Launched
For this year’s This is Not Art Festival (TiNA), David Cranswick and Sarah Thrift of Octapod and members of The Lunaticks Society of Newcastle have joined forces to add an exciting program of digital events to this years festival that explores the opportunities digital media offers young creatives and artists.
Since its inception 1998, TiNA has been dedicated to exploration of experimental and emerging arts media and concepts, providing a platform for innovative and passionate culture makers to conceive, collaborate and critique.
There were a few sneaky events including the NEWi Awards that did not quite make the four day time-slot of TiNA. However, we thought you should still know about them….
All of the events listed here are running over the entire four days of TiNA, so we thought it best to bunch them all together so you can see in a snapshot what events you can take a little breath for…. and plan when it suits you to visit them.
THURSDAY – 27th Sept
TiNA officially kicks off today. Make sure you get along to the Great Northern to help us celebrate the launch of TiNA for 2012….. then choose your own adventure for the night and head along to a range of events and performance to complete your first taste of TiNA. But don’t burn the candle too much….. remember there are still three days to go.
FRIDAY – 28th Sept
Day two and looking good. Hope you’ve had your weet-bix! Today is jam packed full of all sorts of experiences just waiting for you. So come on in… the water’s fine.
SATURDAY – 29th Sept
Ok – now you are really in the thick of it and your time management skills will come into play. Saturday is about the ability to move through a maze of events, performances, panels, workshops, forums, spelling bees, trivia and more and come out the other side….. ready to cut loose at the Festival Club (Great Northern Hotel) at the National Young Writers’ Ball featuring Elefant Traks.
SUNDAY – 30th Sept
Ahhhhh…. Sunday. The day of the rest. Also known as the day of the massive hangover. You will however need the strength to pick yourself up and get over to the Zine and Artist Rooftop Market, the perfect place to get a great coffee, chill and recover for the more relaxed vibes of Sunday, but…..(wait for it)…. Crack Theatre Festival’s closing night at the Festival Club. You know you can’t miss this.
