Speakeasy Performance Development Program


The Darebin Arts Speakeasy program has been created to present contemporary artistic performances at the Northcote Town Hall.

Darebin Arts has opened applications for companies and artists who are keen to present work in our 2016 program.

We also have a separate Darebin Arts Development program, applications are now open here.

After a hugely successful first three years Darebin Art’s Speakeasy program is taking applications for its fourth year of performances at the Northcote Town Hall. So far we have staged a huge variety of works to great critical acclaim, large audiences, 19 Green Room Award Nominations, 3 Melbourne Fringe awards, Best Newcomer Award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and many more nominations and sold out seasons.

We are now taking applications from artists and companies who are devoted to the quality of their practice, are seeking to reach an audience beyond their established sphere, who can demonstrate an unforgiving thoroughness in their process and a true sense of adventure. The program will again consist of an eclectic mix of genres and styles, guaranteeing an engaging experience for audiences. The program is specifically aimed at breathing new life into the Northcote Town Hall’s two studio spaces and newly renovated Main Hall.

We are particularly interested in work which aligns strongly with the Darebin Arts Strategy ‘Creative Darebin’.

To discuss your application please contact the Arts Programming Coordinator, Beau McCafferty, on 03 8470 8531.
