This Is Not Art Festival
TiNA (This is Not Art) is one of Australia's leading contemporary experimental and emerging arts festivals. Its local, national and international participants have been exploring concepts, presenting work and exchanging ideas in Newcastle during the long weekend in October since 1998.
TiNA provides a forum of professional development, in which industry professionals, emerging artists and students are encouraged to present their work, collaborate and develop new skills.
TiNA includes the Critical Animals festival, Crack Theatre Festival, and National Young Writers' Festival.
