University of Newcastle supports artistic collaboration and discovery

The University of Newcastle is an official sponsor of the 2013 This is Not Art (TiNA) Festival which takes place annually in Newcastle over the October long weekend.

Recognised as one of Australia's leading independent arts festivals, TiNA is dedicated to the development of experimental and emerging arts practice by creating spaces for artistic collaboration and discovery.

Presenting 200 events over a four day period, TiNA promotes a vibrant combination of voices that celebrate and seek creative innovation.

This year TiNA will partner with landmark contemporary art attraction City Evolutions, by projecting a series of new and experimental content along Watt Street for the duration of the festival.

The brainchild of creative geniuses Chris Tucker and Mario Minichiello, City Evolutions demonstrates what is possible through creative collaboration. Uniting the disciplines of architecture, computer science, software engineering, design, IT, and fine art, City Evolutions achieves widespread public engagement with research.

Chris Tucker, based at the University of Newcastle, will deliver an address as part of the TiNA festival.
