Yellamundie Festival: Call for Submissions

Presented by Moogahlin Performing Arts, Yellamundie Festival identifies, develops, and presents new First Peoples stories that display potential for further development and/or production.

In January 2021 Yellamundie Festival will be more diverse in its offerings of live performance, providing development opportunities for Playwrights, Music Composers and Dance Choreographers.

From a national call for submissions, six new works will undergo two weeks of development and are presented in a three-day festival of public readings, yarns, and events.

What is offered:

  • Flights, accommodation, living allowance, and wages.
  • Two weeks of development in Sydney* working with local actors, dancers, musicians, director, and outside eye or dramaturg.
  • A public presentation of the Work-In-Progress in Sydney*.
  • Media and public speaking opportunities.
  • A national and international network of artists and peers.

Your new work doesn’t have to be finished: you can submit concepts, compositions, scenes, a synopsis, a recording… anything that gives an example of the story, the characters, the language, the originality of the idea, the theatricality, or the potential for the work to be developed further (minimum of 10 pages for written material, or 5 minutes for audio and visual material).

All works must be solely conceptualised and controlled by First Peoples of Australia. Applicants may apply as an individual, partnership, or small group (up to 4 collaborators) but all applicants must be First Peoples.

Closing date for applications: Sunday 4 October 2020.
