YouTube sensation Natalie Tran and former triple j Breakfast host and comedian Tom Ballard are among the talent featuring at this year’s This is Not Art Festival.

A multidisciplinary festival of many guises, TiNA is currently comprised of The National Young Writers Festival, Crack Theatre Festival and Critical Animals. Between them, these three factions have put together a program which is both explosive and inclusive, with over 180 individual events locked in for the October long weekend.

This year’s festival sees some of Australia’s most vibrant writers, theatremakers and academics explore issues of race, sexuality, gender, environment, politics, and technology, while also offering plenty of opportunities to simply laugh and engage with the creative community.

Hit up the Enchantment Under the Sea Ball or get stuck in to Grant Writing: Hot Tips For Hot Artists, get serious about your craft or just hang out with your new festival BFFs.

This is Not Art runs from Thursday October 1 to Sunday October 4. For more details head to their website.
