InTransit is gearing up for 2016 and is calling all artists to submit proposals for possible pieces to be included in this year’s festival. InTRANSIT encourages artists to make art and performance outside of trad’ spaces for example the co-commission for the Portobello Wall Public Art installation is particularly appropriate (pic).
Each summer, InTRANSIT provides exciting avenues for people of all ages to explore and enjoy energetic experimentation in places and spaces across Kensington and Chelsea. Now in its tenth year, InTRANSIT 2016 will run from Friday 17th to Sunday 26th June. Festival curators are looking to commission outstanding new site responsive or outdoor projects. So artists and companies from any discipline, if you are passionate about working outside of conventional settings, and can respond to this year’s theme of ‘Strange Bedfellows: The Attraction of Opposites’ drop them a line.
Here is the blurb: “We are looking for proposals that explore the interplay between two seemingly opposing elements, for instance, productions that unite two different art forms, communities or ideas, or that explore the attraction of opposites. There is between £1,000 to £5,000 grant funding available to invest in an individual commission, and projects that already have, or could bring in, additional funding from other sources will be at an advantage. We are also keen to commission work that will have a life beyond its iteration in the festival.”
The deadline for submissions for InTRANSIT 2016 is 12pm on Monday 15th February 2016. rbkc
