It is open to applicants from all disciplines and levels of experience, making it highly sought after by artists nationally. 2018 will see an impressive range of applicants from all genres: visual arts and new media, theatre and performance, dance, sound and music, and writing.

Artists, groups and companies come to Bundanon both through our partnerships with cultural institutions and through our open application process.
