from 25 to 27 September the 9th Neustadt Art Festival will take place. We are uber glad that this small festival is decentrally organized which means that we are in compliance with the corona regulations. So together we are looking for old and new free spaces in Dresden Neustadt and beyond so that with your help we can create an arts and culture festival for everyone far off from commerce.
Do you play an instrument, sing, paint, solder, glue, dance, screw, drill, perform, or are creative in any other way? Do you have a bar, a studio, a club, a cellar, an attic, or a similar space that you would like to make available? Then use this uneventful time in your cubbyhole and think about what you have always wanted to create. The NAF crew will support you with the execution, connect you with other participants, and promote your event in the program, via the NAF app and the website. The press deadline for the program is September 7, the website and app will be updated until the start of the festival on September 27.
If you already have an idea and are looking for a place or if you have a space to offer, check out our “Buntes Brett” (notice board).
For those who prefer a face-to-face meeting, we have scheduled two real-life meetings:
The first one is on Sunday, 26 July at 4 pm at Alaunpark (in the middle of Zentralweg and Kindergarten). In case it is raining heavily, we will meet at the Interrobang.
The second meeting is on Sunday, 23 August, also at 4 pm, also at Alaunpark and here again, the alternative in case of heavier downpours is the Interrobang.
we would like to thank everyone who has made this festival what it is today. We have received a lot of positive feedback about the different locations and the sense that NAF is slowly becoming a permanent fixture in Dresden Neustadt. The program is colorful, diverse, and the audience even plans its weekend according to the events of the NAF.
For us as organizers the follow-up work has now begun, i.e. evaluating photos, archiving the website, obtaining and writing reports, accounting for subsidies, collecting and paying bills and refunds – all this stuff that makes the festival possible in the background.
If you want to get involved in the organization of the NAF 2020, get ready for the first organizational meetings starting in January. The announcements will be made as usual via the Verteiler, Website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
We are now proud owners of a Crowdfunding! <3 With your help we want to collect a small budget to cover the expenses of our participating artists. We are very happy about your support and also have some very nice presents up our sleeve.
One last time you have the chance to ask us questions personally before the NAF. Actually, you can always ask us questions personally, because we are not the Queen. But on Sunday you can do that comfortably at the Interrobang‽ It starts at 4 pm. We are looking forward to seeing you!
Our notice board is constantly being filled with locations and artists! You are not yet registered with your location or you are an artist and are still looking for an exhibition or performance opportunity?
