As one of Australia’s most loved arts festivals This is Not Art (TiNA) celebrates Newcastle as a creative city. Each year Newcastle’s CBD comes alive with young and old celebrating emerging creativity and culture over the Labour Day Long Weekend.
In 2018 the festival will be centred around the Civic Cultural Precinct, Hunter St Mall and eastern edge of the Mall area. Longstanding venues such as The Lock-Up will return as well as new ones such as Newcastle City Library, Christ Church Cathedral Cemetery and Softys. As Newcastle changes, so does TINA – forever responding to its urban environment.
