We need your help! The Darwin Fringe is all about safe risk taking and thanks to NT Sexual Health we're looking for some creatives to make Sexy Safety Dispensers for some of our festival locations. Each dispenser will contain free lube, gloves, dental dams and condoms for festival goers. Don't be afraid to think outside the box! (pun intended)
WE RECOMMEND reading through this application and saving your application if you need more time. You can save your application and come back to it for up to 30 days.

CONSIDERATIONS☆ Needs to be sturdy and be able to withstand people putting their hands into, around and on it repeatedly.
☆ Textures are always fun to play with but please keep it safe. Nothing scratchy or sharp.
☆ Sexy is welcomed but please remember that the dispenser will be kept in a public space and we want everyone to feel safe. We’re more than happy to discuss ideas with you to find a compromise.
THE BUDGETArtist Fee is $250 and you get $150 for materials. Once accepted we will get you to invoice us for your material fee. You will invoice us for the artwork after you drop it off.
SIZENeeds to be able to sit in a corner of a room or on a counter-top. Small designs welcome (it’s not the size that matters, it’s what you do with it). Height should be no bigger than a metre and a half. Just needs to fit the condoms, lube, dental dams and gloves.
MATERIALSRecycled materials are totally welcome and encouraged! The dispenser just needs to stay alive for 10 days and to be safe to touch. If it can stay alive longer then that’s even better, we’ll find it a home so the art can live on (unless you would like to keep your creation).
LOOKWhatever you want! Don't be afraid to get weird or use puns. It doesn’t have to have the Darwin Fringe Festival colours but if you would like it to then go ahead! Our colours are: GREEN #00b355 | PINK #E52C61. Oh and don’t forget the crocodiles!
