Expression of Interest for PICF 2022.

Western Australian-based cabaret artists are invited to submit an EOI for the 2022 festival. While PICF is a curated event, we continue to provide additional opportunities for WA-based artists. This EOI is to start a conversation with you about your ideas.

Perth International Cabaret Festival is a festival that actively seeks to include, welcome and value unique contributions from all people; to give everyone a voice and an opportunity to tell their stories. We encourage First Nations peoples, young people, people living with disability, members of LGBTIQ+ community, senior artists and people from culturally diverse backgrounds to submit an EOI. Submissions close: 29 October @ 5pm.



Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse accepted our invitation to be the festival’s first patrons.
