Submissions for Summer at Q 2024 have now closed.
Summer at Q is our annual celebration of independent makers: a space designed to give collective artists, companies and audiences a chance to take artistic risks in theatre, by providing venue, marketing, ticketing and technical support at accessible rates in a festival framework.
Dance, theatre, music, live art, talks, workshops, cabaret, comedy, whatever your preferred art form, we welcome your ideas and submissions. Over the past 6 years, we have supported works from a massive range of artists, both emerging and established, from experimental, through to kitchen sink dramas.
Images left to right: Skin Hunger, be:longing - Homegrown Edition, She’s Crowning: Rebirth, Death. Disco. Heartbeat
We welcome applications from anyone wanting to stage their innovative work in a festival environment, as well as those planning to register with Auckland Pride. Summer at Q content is typically a mix of work from an array of perspectives and experiences, including queer led programming.
Thanks to The University of Auckland, productions programmed into Q Loft or Q Vault during Summer at Q will access packaged rates, while those who choose to be programmed into Q Rangatira, will enjoy a significant venue discount.
