The ISACS Network, Circostrada, ARTCENA and Culture Ireland, in partnership with Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture are delighted to launch this open call for performances at FRESH STREET#3 – International Seminar for the Development of Street Arts.
Taking place May 22-24, 2019 in Galway, Ireland, FRESH STREET#3 will bring together artists, programmers, researchers, pedagogues, journalists, and policymakers from all over the globe for a multidimensional event focused on the development and promotion of street arts.
Over 250 international delegates passionate about street arts will take part in panel discussions, workshops, professional exchanges, and exploration of the local context including a visit to the Aran Islands. Delegates will also experience a number of outstanding artistic performances to be curated from this open call.
What counts as street arts? They define it as any performative work that takes place outdoors and in public—be it grounded in circus, dance, music, or any other live arts discipline.
FRESH STREET is a fantastic opportunity for artists to showcase their best work in front of hundreds of performing arts programmers and curators from nations around the world.
They are looking for live, outdoor performances in any discipline to suit the following contexts:
1. Opening performance at the National University of Ireland, Galway (May 22)
2. Two main programme performances that are site-specific, on the island of Inis Oírr (May 23)
3. Closing performance in the city of Galway (May 24)
Production budgets (inclusive of artist fees, tech, travel, accommodation and per diems*) ranging from 2,000 to 30,000€ may be covered. Bear in mind that on the final programme we will be looking for a mix of large, small, and micro-scale performances, so we welcome a diverse range of budget proposals.
*Travel, accommodation and per diems will be reimbursed upon proof of expenditure. For Irish artists, these costs are generously supported by Culture Ireland. Additional non-monetary support for artists includes local knowledge, contacts, and technical support from the FRESH STREET#3 team. Marketing, promotion and media through ISACS, Circostrada, Galway 2020, Culture Ireland and Áras Éanna networks (mailings, social media, local and national press, etc).
