Funding & Resources

Supernormal is a not-for-profit event organized by an unpaid collective of artists and musicians with limited resources in place at present. We are currently working on funding proposals to assist in production costs and expenses but cannot guarantee support at this stage. We encourage artists to source their own project funding where possible and are happy to provide supporting statements.
Participating artists are provided with meals whilst on site and guest tickets, promotion of projects and profiles.

We look forward to hearing from you!
