Artists, performers and other creatives, your time is now.

The annual Surry Hills Festival is looking for installation artists, performers and other creatives who want to showcase their work at the upcoming event.

The Festival Company's Arts & Culture Manager Vic Johnstone said, “The Surry Hills Festival will feature a much bigger arts element this year. We're looking for exciting, interactive and engaging artists to give their time to help create the eclectic festival experience that the community comes for.

The festival takes place Saturday 27 October at Prince Alfred Park.
