We're on the lookout for extraordinary performances to present at Splore. Shows, workshops, happenings, flash mobs and disruptions for our community to view, experience and participate in.

Have you got an idea that will be perfect to present at Tapapakanga this coming February? Are you an individual artist or part of a collective with existing work ready to adapt for Splore? Would you like to come and share your knowledge or passion as a workshop at the festival? Do you know of a wicked performer who we should approach to take part? We are keen to hear about work and ideas that can be presented in a variety of locations. That look stunning on or above stage, move around our site and encourage the audience to engage and participate.

We're working with modest budgets so pease be realistic and creative with your expectations. For example may be able to contribute to the development and presentation of some work in lieu of fee. As it’s a chance to showcase a new creation. We are also keen to collaborate with other industry bodies & explore alternative funding opportunities to support work above and beyond. 

If you wish to start a conversation about contributing to the amazing performance and workshop content at Splore please complete this form.

Application for the next Splore should be lodged before 31 October.

We are happy to receive your ideas beyond this date however more as options for content at future Splore events.

Splore 2018 - Festival Theme:


Magical, mysterious, rhythmic and routine. Gamboling, spiral patterns keep us on the move. Sun kissed limbs dancing to rhythms. We are mystic, we are magic. Summon your spirit animal, conjure sunshine & banish the darkness. Bring the dawn. Eat! Sleep! Rave! Repeat! Let there be moments unexplained.
