Event description

Description

Join us to celebrate 20 years making art things happen in Newcastle.

Octapod’s birthday bash will be a fun-filled affair where we toast the achievements of the past, reconnect with our awesome alumni and look towards an exciting future of arts in the Lower Hunter.

The event will feature:

  • The launch of Octapod's online timeline, showcasing highlights from the past 20 years
  • Our 'posters from the past' pop up exhibition (one day only!)
  • Fundraising games and activities
  • Music by Synchromute, Newcastle based electronic artist and DJ - mixing up an eclectic brew of demo tracks from artists involved with Electrofringe/This is Not Art events in the early years from 1997-2001.
  • Drinks plus yummy nibbles by our good friends at Vinyl Cafe

We invite all awesome alumni, past and present volunteers and interested members of the public to join us on our new direction and celebrate our region’s vibrant and diverse arts scene.

Proceeds from tickets and fundraising on the night will help ensure Octapod can continue for another 20 years to do what we do best – supporting vibrant and inclusive arts in the Lower Hunter and producing the ever-popular and nationally renowned This is Not Art (TiNA) festival.

Note: Speeches will be Auslan interpreted.

Tickets are $25.00 + BF.
