FUSE@Large Registration Form

FUSE@Large Autumn 2024



FUSE is the City of Darebin's multi-arts festival—provides a platform for local artists, designers and performers to transform our amazing city into a dynamic hub of creativity. FUSE allows artists and audiences alike to enjoy our streets, parks, venues, theatres, galleries and public spaces as transformative zones—infused with the power of art, culture and creativity.

As part of the festival, we offer FUSE@Large, an open-access program that provides opportunities for local artists and creatives to activate Darebin in unexpected, delightful ways. Think of FUSE@Large as your local festival where anyone and everyone putting on an event in Darebin can participate. FUSE works to remove as many barriers to getting your art out there as possible. FUSE@Large is open access, which means we don’t curate this programming stream, so if you can put on a show, we’ll put you in the FUSE festival program.

FUSE@Large is a chance for artists and community members to test, experiment and try out ideas in front of a local audience. It’s an opportunity to make invaluable local, creative, and professional connections. It’s a way to develop new material, push the boundaries of art, or find a new audience for an already established piece. 



Whether you're an artist, producer, arts organisation or Darebin-based creative venue, we invite you to join our FUSE@Large program. Because FUSE@Large is open access, there's no selection process. All you have to do is register using the form below.

Registration is free, and events need to be artist-led or place community, artists and creatives at the centre of their design. 

If it’s about art and community, and it’s happening in Autumn and Spring, then it's eligible for our program. You don't need to be based in Darebin to put on an event, but it must be presented in Darebin and it must be in line with council principles.


We will be announcing new dates shortly - please reach out to fuse@darebin.com.au is you would like more information about upcoming dates and opportunities. 


Since FUSE@Large is open access, you'll be responsible for developing, producing, staging and promoting your event.

As the countdown to the festival begins, here are a few tips:

  1. Remember to include the customer ticketing fee in your advertised price.
  2. Invest time in your program image, less is more, don’t overcrowd the image. Don’t include any text on your image. The event name will appear separately
  3. See other shows in the FUSE Festival program. Your FUSE experience can be so much more expansive than your own show.

Please Note although we try to promote FUSE@Large as much as we can, we can't guarantee specific coverage of open-access events. However, your event will have a dedicated program page on our website during the festival.

Once we receive your registration and have confirmed your event, we'll send you our Marketing Handbook for Artists with more info on promoting your event.

Your main point of contact is Bronwyn Ryan-Mercer fuse@darebin.vic.gov.au

Now, register your event below and we'll see you at FUSE.
