Blak Lines New Work Platform

A national gathering bringing together Indigenous artists with presenters and programmers.

Blak Lines New Work Platform is a sector development project produced by Performing Lines in association with YIRRAMBOI First Nations Arts Festival. It aims to provide an opportunity for Indigenous independent artists to profile new works. This includes concepts, as well as works in-development and ready for presentation.

Blak Lines New Work Platform was first presented at YIRRAMBOI First Nations Arts Festival in 2017.
