Sydney Festival Arts Pass program welcomes artists and arts workers to experience a summer of hot performances at discounted prices.
With a packed summer program ahead for 2023, we are again proud to offer our Arts Pass initiative which is designed to provide greater opportunities for practicing artists and arts workers in Australia to access heavily discounted tickets for the 2023 Sydney Festival.
The benefits of Arts Pass include:
• Access to a limited number of discounted Arts Pass tickets to a selection of Sydney Festival events
• Free membership which lasts for the duration of the festival
Notes for Artists and Arts Workers:
We use the following definitions of ‘professional performing or visual artist’ and ‘performing or visual arts worker’ in assessing applications:
1. A professional performing or visual artist is a person who creates works of performing or visual arts, who is paid for their artistic practice, whose practice contributes to the development of art and culture, and who is recognized as a professional artist by their peers.
2. An arts worker is a person who works professionally in the performing or visual arts and contributes directly to the processes of making art – but is not necessarily an ‘artist’. Examples of eligible professions include; paid stage managers, production managers, lighting, sound, set and costume makers and designers, arts marketers, producers, curators and programmers.
Please note that teachers, students (unless studying vocational or industry related courses) and hospitality staff are not eligible for this program (unless your arts practice is in addition to this work).
To qualify for the program, artists and arts workers must be currently practicing – this means having at least one work funded, developed or produced in the past 12 months. The Arts Industry Program is open to Australian residents only, although work undertaken overseas is eligible for qualification.
*Arts Pass discounts are only available on selected full price General Admission or A Reserve tickets. Exclusions apply.
Demand for Arts Pass is expected to be high, therefore early applications are encouraged.
