Will there be a festival venue or bar?
SALT will have a SALTshaker venue where all festival artists, presenters and attendees will be able to meet, converse, experience art and interactive events and be part of the SALT festival community. Please join us to share your stories, insights and ideas. If you have a performance or event that you want to present please contact us to discuss. Look forward to seeing you there.
I have a great idea for the festival, is there a way I can propose this and/or discuss this with someone?
We love great ideas and hope that you will use our online application forms to put forward your idea. You can also email us with a brief outline and we can get back to you to discuss if that suits best. Contact us via our website.
How long has this event been going?
2017 will be the first year SALT festival is held. SALT will be an annual event that intends to grow.
Is there festival funding available to contribute to the costs of projects, artists, innovators and conferences?
SALT organisers are bringing together a range of funding sources, sponsors and philanthropic supporters. We are also encouraging individuals and organisations planning a project to look at funding that they may be able to secure. There is an opportunity to highlight what you require on the EOI and SALT organisers will be able to talk through options with you.
May I take photos at SALT events?
Yes. Unless otherwise stated at events, personal cameras/phones are allowed during events provided it is not disruptive. Attendees may take photos from their seats, as long as they are not obstructing views or using flash.
Is this an annual event?
