All the Queen's Men

Going Nowhere Festival

Arts House Melbourne (Eastern Kulin Nations)

An international festival / exchange exploring ways in which we can sustainably develop international arts projects. In 2014, Tristan Meecham was 2014 Festival Curator.


Going Nowhere is one event happening on two sides of the globe simultaneously—in Melbourne and in Cambridge, UK—exploring how artists, communities and audiences can sustainably generate international creative experiences without getting on a plane.

Through four local and international arts collaborations and a program of interactive forums and workshops to be announced soon, Going Nowhere rehearses possible futures and embraces the shared delights of staying put and reaching out.

There’ll also be

  • a collaborative ‘weather report’
  • a new light projection work from Olaf Meyer
  • food, music and parties curated by Tristan Meecham

Diarise it now, make sure you stay in town, and join us for three unforgettable days in November.
