Multiple opportunities to present work as part of Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival

Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival in partnership with N( )RTH is offering two unique opportunities for emerging artists to create, share, network and perform as part of the 2015 festival.

Cross-Platform Artist Collaboration is an opportunity for artists to come together to create a completely original live art performance. These collaborations will be devised and performed within Pyramid during the allotted time, 10am-10pm on Thursday 22 October.

Alongside use of Pyramid, artists will receive technical support with access to lighting, sound and projection. This is a wonderful opportunity to network and work with other artists and enhance performance experience within an intense 12 hour period.

Encounters is a fantastic opportunity for new and emerging artists who wish to gain experience showcasing already conceived work in a public space. It provides an opportunity for artists to meet, and preview work on Saturday 24 October. In contrast to Cross-Platform Artist Collaboration, this call is for work (either work in progress or completed pieces) that can be performed in and around Warrington Town Centre. Festival organisers are particularly interested in work that encourages audience interaction.

Proposals must be for live arts performances and can support dance, mixed-media, visual arts and performance art. For routines and set performances artists must be prepared to showcase work more than once during a four hour period. Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival will be able to provide technical assistance, a PA, a place to change and store valuables.
