Bass Coast is looking for educators with training and experience relevant to their workshop topic, and accessible and inclusive workshops and classes that offer unique and innovative perspectives and techniques. You can apply to lead one of these workshops here.
Bass Coast is also host to a number of performance artists. Examples of performance styles that have traditionally been featured at the festival include:
- Roving performances that move throughout the festival site. These performances are encouraged to include interactive elements or characters.
- Group stage performances lasting from 5-20 minutes.
- Aerial artists that perform to their own music or during another set.
