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 of festivals, to undertake detailed strategic planning. Sadly, not all strategic planning processes end with the decision to continue operating.
We have recently made the difficult decision to wrap up Noted due to the challenge of accessing non-project-based funding, essential for ongoing sustainability. All of Noted's remaining funds have been given to the ACT Writers Centre to continue supporting the ACT's literary community.
Given the enthusiasm and talent demonstrated over the last few years, we are confident that bold, daring and inclusive literary events will continue to prosper in the ACT. We hope that they are given the support they need to thrive.
Thank you to everyone that that was a part of the Noted family, especially our partners, staff and artists for all their time and effort to make Noted a truly special festival.
