Shepparton Festival is seeking expressions of interest from creatives for artistic works to be presented within 2023 Festival period 17 March – 2 April. We encourage creatives across all artistic mediums, platforms, practices and career stages to apply. There are no creative restraints or parameters, so think outside the square and let your imagination run wild! 

Shepparton Festival is a multidisciplinary, regional arts festival that aims to reach a broad demographic and to be inclusive and contemporary. We also aim to provide opportunities for events, local businesses and locally grown content. In March 2023, we will offer a comprehensive program of curated art, performances, workshops, as well as cultural and food experiences across multiple venues and spaces to transform Greater Shepparton.
