Rubbish Art Project - SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL


Regent's Canal Festival celebrates the 200th anniversary of the formation of the Canal, while engaging local communities provides an excellent platform to deliver a wide range of artistic disciplines - such as audiovisuals, performances, visual arts, live experiences, events and music. The Regent's Canal Festival is taking place alongside the canal, crossing boroughs from Little Venice to Limehouse Basin. The Festival will be transforming the Regent's Canal into an artistic and cultural hub raising awareness of environmental issues through the arts. In order to create this, we are looking for art works that thematically fits our artistic vision, enhancing the look and feel of being surrounded by water. The pieces may be interactive or purely visual spectacles, they can potentially incorporate elements of water or fire but they must be relatively durable and suitable for all weather conditions. Floating and light sculptures are particularly welcome. We are currently INVITING SUBMISSIONS for outdoor pieces to be showcased with the Regent's Canal Festival and around London waterways until the end of the Olympics. (Shoreditch Festival, Barbican, Angel Canal Festival and London Wilidlife Center London, other TBC) This application is most applicable to existing art works that you would like to exhibit to a wider audience. But if you have a new project that you like to create for the Festival don't forget to send all the budget details. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to exhibit your work during the Olympic period, reaching a diverse worldwide audience of more than a hundred thousand people. Deadline for project submission: Friday 1st June, 10pm If you want to know more follow as http://www.facebook.com/regentscanalfestival, And fill in the Proposal Submission Form!
