The inaugural Alter State festival is planned for late 2022.
Co-founded and presented by Arts Centre Melbourne and Arts Access Victoria, Alter State is a major arts and disability festival engaging artists and audiences from Australia and Aotearoa (New Zealand).
Alter State is:
- A deep exploration of art from our region
- A space for kōrero, yarning and storytelling shaped by disability
- The presentation of work that audiences rarely experience
Alter State was first imagined by independent artists who explored the possibilities for the festival to:
- Honour Deaf and Disabled artists
- Honour First Nations cultures
- Challenge ideas about disability
- Shape the future of art and performance
