never going to be too early

Brisbane Emerging Arts Festival call out

To come out.

Remember the Brisbane Emerging Arts Festival last year?

There was some really lovely people who got out of their skins and under yours. This time maybe it be your turn.

Brisbane Emerging Art Festival will be presented July 27th 2013, at The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.

The festival will focus on presenting Brisbane’s leading emerging artists from across visual art, performance, experimental and contemporary music, dance, fashion, film, design and spoken word. A team of Brisbane-based creative producers will direct and manage the new work showcase.

Artists will have the opportunity to submit applications to present new work, utilising The Judith Wright Centre’s established spaces and production equipment.

The 2013 artistic program will comprise of :

  • A visual art exhibition showcasing a selection of artists from Brisbane’s contemporary emerging art scene.
  • A performance and presentation main stage.
  • Experimental sound and contemporary music spaces.
  • Theatre and dance.
  • Urban art and installation.
  • Video art and film screenings.
  • Spoken word soap boxes and performances.

Artist applications will open via an official call out. Please like the facebook page for current information.

I am lucky enough to be on the curatorial team again this year, so please get in touch if you want to talk ideas. I don’t believe four months out is too early to start planning. Or saving for your bribes. Emerging is defined rather ambiguously, but early career, collaborative, spoken wordy type individuals should get in touch.
