There were a few sneaky events that did not quite make the four day time-slot of TiNA. However, we thought you should still know about them.... so here they are.VIEW SCHEDULE
All of the events listed here are running over the entire four days of TiNA, so we thought it best to bunch them all together so you can see in a snapshot what events you can take a little breath for.... and plan when it suits you to visit them.VIEW SCHEDULE
TiNA kicks off today. Make sure you get along to the Great Northern to help us celebrate the launch of TiNA for 2012..... then choose your own adventure for the night and head along to a range of events and performance to complete your first taste of TiNA. But don't burn the candle too much..... remember there are still three days to go.VIEW SCHEDULE
Day two and looking good. Hope you've had your weet-bix! Today is jam packed full of all sorts of experiences just waiting for you. So come on in... the water's fine.VIEW SCHEDULE
Ok - now you are really in the thick of it and your time management skills will come into play. Saturday is about the ability to move through a maze of events, performances, panels, workshops, forums, spelling bees, trivia and more and come out the other side..... ready to cut loose at the Festival Club (Great Northern Hotel) at the National Young Writers' Ball featuring Elefant Traks.VIEW SCHEDULE
Ahhhhh.... Sunday. The day of the rest. Also known as the day of the massive hangover. You will however need the strength to pick yourself up and get over to the Zine and Artist Rooftop Market, the perfect place to get a great coffee, chill and recover for the more relaxed vibes of Sunday, but.....(wait for it).... Crack Theatre Festival's closing night at the Festival Club. You know you can't miss this.VIEW SCHEDULE
THE NYWF WRITERS' BOOTCAMP
This year, the NYWF is running a series of free, intensive workshops facilitated by young writers, publishers and radio-makers at the head of their fields. The workshops are out-come focused, and submissions-based to ensure each participant gets the maximum attention. Run your TV pilot through the ringer with Christian Lander, walk out with a small press proposal, an eBook, a handful of new poems, thorough feedback on your writing or a radio story recorded and ready for airplay.
Even though the submission deadline has well and truly sailed past, if you are interested in participating in any of the following, email email@example.com, or register your interest at Staple Manor, and we'll see if we can squeeze you in.VIEW SCHEDULE
SATURDAY DIGITAL FORUM
Saturday’s Digital Forum is presented in four sessions, so you can pick and choose what interests you. We invite you to join us Newcastle Museum, McIntyre Theatre. It’s free and you’re welcome to drop in and out over the day, relax, kick-back and enjoy great food and coffee at Sprout Canteen.
Octapod have invited an extraordinary line-up of speakers to contribute to the lively critical discussions and ideas generated by this year’s TiNA. Our day-long digital forum is intelligent and practical, providing deeper insight into contemporary digital culture and the ways in which we shape, or are being shaped by information and communications technologies.
We know TiNA always attracts a good number of highly creative people. Our session on new streams of funding for developing ideas into reality is front and centre of the program. Thinking ahead, you are invited to join us in discussion about future models for festivals like TiNA and if cities like Newcastle are ideal places for innovation and the arts in a burgeoning digital economy.
All in all, the Saturday Forum will be jam packed with fresh, intelligent ideas and people - an ideal opportunity to hang out, share you thoughts, discover new opportunities and shift the way you think.VIEW SCHEDULE
MARK EVERY MOVE
Mark Every Move celebrates the potential spaces the urban landscape provides where art can be realised and artists can actively engage with the environment while deconstructing the urban fabric and offering multiple entry points to contribute to the broader culture of the city.
Responding to the uniqueness of Newcastle’s CBD this temporary art program challenges what constitutes public art and aims to create new experiences and perceptions. Mark Every Move extends an invitation to navigate through Newcastle’s CBD utilising the distinctive artworks as a tool to map a journey of the city while exposing alternative perspectives using a variety of artistic responses, incorporating a variety of media.
