Bristol Biennial 2016: In Other Worlds (UK) > International open call for emerging artists
Bristol Biennial has been described as “impressive, radical and artist-led” (a-n). Emerging in 2012, the festival responded to the need for opportunities for early-career artists to present their work professionally across the city. Led by four practicing artists, Bristol Biennial values hopefulness, nurtures talent and promotes accessibility within the visual arts ecology. The organisers aim to reconnect artists and audiences, foster international and local partnerships and operate an unorthodox festival model in a precarious climate.
The Biennal's organisers are looking for proposals from emerging visual artists of all and any discipline: sculpture, performance, moving image, technology, events, installations, writing, talks, collaborative and participatory work, to name just a few. They are interested in big and small ideas, research, ambition and collaboration.
You can apply under the Shapers or Shakers' categories and budget proposals can include travel costs (budgets can be up to £3000 under the Shapers' category). Check carefully the details.
Deadline: 3 July
