Artist Opportunities


Big ideas are never beyond the years.

Back for a third year, XS is our program of contemporary, experimental and live art for children. XS ditches the storybook and places kids in world where they are at the centre of the narrative, offering the extra smalls an XS of possibilities.

This year, we’re giving YOU an extra special opportunity to be part of this program, with XS OPEN – a new open access public art commission. We’re looking for an independent artist, company or collective to create and premiere a free work for children up to 12 years old, in public space within the City of Maribyrnong. The successful artist(s) will receive up to $10,000, inclusion in the 2020 Melbourne Fringe Festival and a whole lotta support in the form of Melbourne Fringe humans and resources.

Expressions of Interest are open now and close on Monday 30 March. For more info and/or to submit an EOI, check out the form below.
