CubaDupa 2020
Expressions of Interest / Artist Applications

CubaDupa has developed into an extraordinary festival of the street that has it's own unique character and place. We are looking for creative work and ideas that: 

  • Respond to the street and the Cuba precinct environment
  • Are high quality and innovative
  • Are surprising, entertaining, fun and engaging for audiences.

We welcome proposals for new works, or the development and re-presentation of existing works. This is a curated festival and we are looking to programme:

  • Stage Music
  • Promenading, Roaming and Street Performances
  • Creative Technology Projects
  • Family Focused Activities, Performances, and Installations
  • Site Specific Installations and Performances
  • Street Décor; Street Art, Costumes and Installations

We advise you to have a quick read through the form to see what information we require from you, as the information needs to be submitted in one sitting. And here are a few quick points that are worth bearing in mind for your application:

  • Our vision for CubaDupa is to celebrate the epic creativity of the Cuba precinct and wider Wellington creative community and we aim to be the most extraordinary, participatory and creative street festival in Australasia and beyond 
  • We are a festival of the street, and programme artists and projects that respond to the unique Cuba St environment 
  • We programme local, national and international WORLD CLASS acts
  • We are VERY interested in programming 'creative technology’ projects
  • We aim to have more visual arts and installations in 2020
  • We encourage shows/projects that have been curated or put together especially for CubaDupa
  • Innovative ideas that engage and encourage participation and lead to deeper connections within the festival
  • We encourage projects involving 'mass music’ with as many members as possible
  • We encourage many different communities and cultural groups to apply 
  • It is very important for performing artists to have good quality support material such as live footage on Youtube and to include these links in the EOI
  • We prefer not to programme groups two years in a row

Expressions of Interest close on the 2nd of August 2019.
