Final curtain falls on Supercell Dance Festival

The Queensland-based festival is calling it a day after surviving on project grants for seven years.

A lack of operational funding, coupled with concerns for the wellbeing of staff and associates in light of such challenges, has led to the plug being pulled on Supercell Dance Festival.

The Queensland-based contemporary dance festival, which has supported over 650 artists and engaged with over 27,000 audience members since it was first held in 2017, will wind up at the end of the 2021. Final financial audits and ATO paperwork will be submitted by 30 June 2022.
