EOI's Open

Friends of creative genius! We are buzzing to announce the opening of the Expressions of Interest for CubaDupa 2020 which will be held on the 28th & 29th March. Please tell your talented friends at home and afar and help us bring the streets alive again in 2020. Here is the link to the application form:

We advise you to have a quick read through the form to see what information we require from you, as the information needs to be submitted in one sitting. And here are a few quick points that are worth bearing in mind for your application:

  • Our vision for CubaDupa is to celebrate the epic creativity of the Cuba precinct and wider Wellington creative community and we aim to be the most extraordinary, participatory and creative street festival in Australasia and beyond

  • We are a festival of the street, and programme artists and projects that respond to the unique Cuba St environment

  • We programme local, national and international WORLD CLASS acts

  • We are VERY interested in programming 'creative technology’ projects

  • We aim to have more visual arts and installations in 2020

  • We encourage shows/projects that have been curated or put together especially for CubaDupa

  • Innovative ideas that engage and encourage participation and lead to deeper connections within the festival

  • We encourage projects involving 'mass music’ with as many members as possible

  • We encourage many different communities and cultural groups to apply

  • It is very important for performing artists to have good quality support material such as live footage on Youtube and to include these links in the EOI

  • We prefer not to programme groups two years in a row
