Applications are now open to showcase art, design, and music with the return of Creative Open this winter from 25 - 28 July 2024.

Now in its third year, the winter arts festival will fire up the Northern Beaches with live gigs, exhibitions, talks, gatherings, comedy, markets, performances, and public art. 

Creative Open activates shops, galleries, venues and open spaces, bringing to life precincts across the Beaches over the four-day festival. 

Last year’s creative event saw 6,000 visitors attend 50 events. This year’s festival will offer the most diverse program yet and celebrates dynamic visual and performance artists, and live music acts playing dance hall to disco, jazz, jungle and everything in between.

We’re calling for applications for live entertainment and events, exhibitions, and creative activations to be part of our festival program. 

This is an opportunity for participating venues and creatives to connect with new audiences, promote their business and build stronger relationships with the local community and creative sector.

Applications open on 29 January and close on 3 March 2024.
