With an exciting new program and the blockbuster Van Gogh Alive exhibition at Foreshore Park, City of Newcastle's flagship arts festival will return this September with a vibrant showcase of art, culture and creativity.
New Annual 2022 kicks off with the opening of Van Gogh Alive on 22 September followed by an immersive festival of dance, music, theatre, visual arts and Indigenous workshops, with installations in the city’s cultural precinct until 2 October.
