There are many ways local and visiting artists can become involved with the Festival.
Local practising artists can apply for the Industry Card which enables you to engage with the Festival—by seeing shows at a discounted rate, attending forums, invitations to artist workshops and by interacting with staff and visiting artists.
In collaboration with a variety of arts organisations Melbourne Festival will facilitate a diverse program of master classes, workshops and lectures led by some of the acclaimed, international artists appearing in the Festival.
Melbourne Festival is a curated program. There is no selection committee to consider unsolicited submissions and therefore we are not able to offer assessment and feedback. Inclusion in the Festival is by invitation from the Artistic Director. The character of the Festival is dependent on the curatorial vision of each Artistic Director.
