It's been a rough year for TiNA. Our funding applications have missed by a whisker and because paying artists and arts workers is important to us, we had to make the tough call to not go ahead with 2023 This is Not Art Festival.

Even though the lights are out this year, all is not lost. Thanks to some Rescue and Restart funding from Create NSW we have been able to start planning a 2024 program. Being at the mercy of the funding gods is not a great place to be, so we are taking matters into our own hands and very soon we will be launching a fundraising campaign so we can come back in 2024 and celebrate 25 years of helping experimental artists take off or take a risk
