Be part of Creative Open Northern Beaches and put yourself on the map.

We are seeking expressions of interest for a new event coming this winter to the Northern Beaches.

Running over two weekends in August, Creative Open Northern Beaches will highlight the very best of the Northern Beaches’ creative sector and invite audiences to explore diverse creative studios and businesses throughout the region.

Open to artist studios, galleries, recording/music studios, film/editing suites, creative workshops e.g. screen printers, digital labs and other creative businesses such as; designers, bookshops, surfboard shapers and food/cafes/venues where relevant. Creative Open will support creative businesses to connect with new audiences, and to promote and sell work.

In addition to opening your doors, we also encourage applicants to provide unique programming or entertainment at their place of business/practice, such as book readings, performance, workshop or talks. For individuals that do not work from a space suitable for public access, alternative pop-up spaces may be sought, for example, through Council’s facilities.
