Over three festivals, Noted collectively presented work by 235+ local, national and international artists across 150+ free events to an audience of over 5000 people. In 2018 we took a year off festivals, to undertake detailed strategic planning. Sadly, the strategic planning has resulted in a very difficult decision to cease operating.

This decision is largely due to the challenge of accessing non-project-based funding, which is essential for ongoing sustainability. All of Noted Festival's remaining funds have been given to the ACT Writers Centre to continue supporting the ACT's literary community. 

Over the last few years we have continued to witness incredible literary talent and enthusiastic audiences from Canberra and beyond. Bold, daring and inclusive literary events will always be welcomed in the ACT and we hope that they are given the support they need to thrive.

Thank you to everyone that that was a part of the Noted Festival family: venues, sponsors, partners, staff, artists, volunteers and audiences. Your time and effort made Noted a truly special festival.
