Canberra has changed so much in the past two and a half years since our last festival, and we’re doing things a little differently too. Our festival will run over three days, and will give you the chance to go deeper, slow down, immerse yourself in new and wonderful experiences and nurture our special community. We have taken the pulse on our lively little city and endeavoured to bring you work by some of the best experimental artists from right here in Canberra and across the country.

Putting accessibility and inclusion at the heart of everything we do, we invite everyone to participate in this festival. We are focused on art that cares for the artists who make it and the audience who experiences it. Each event in our program has been addressed individually to identify key accessibility opportunities for all.

We invite you to join us for spoken poetry, installations, hands-on workshops, a dinner party, discussions, community making, sleep training, immersive experiences, dance, music, projection and so much more! Six of the artworks in the festival are the result of the Artist Development Program run by You Are Here for the first time this year.

We hope you enjoy the festival as much as we have enjoyed delving deep into what we care about most; supporting artists, bringing arts to our community, lowering the barriers for artists to create and audiences to experience.

The You Are Here 2019 festival is made possible by the City Renewal Authority’s City Grants program, Sidney Myer Foundation and supported by artsACT.
