Open Call | International Artists for FIX19, Catalyst Arts, Belfast

Deadline: 3 August.

Catalyst Arts are seeking proposals for FIX19 from international artists of all ages based in the UK, Ireland or other European countries. They are seeking performances that respond to ideas of the “transnational”. They encourage a broad interpretation of this theme and its personal, political, interactive or even ambiguous aspects in a work. Proposed work can be anything from small or larger interventions, screenings to durational pieces. Although new work is encouraged it is not strictly requested.

FIX is an internationally renowned biennial of live art, established by Catalyst Arts in 1994. For twenty-five years FIX has consistently delivered an innovative programme of local and international live, sonic and performance artists to the city of Belfast and is one of Europe’s longest running live art festivals.

This year’s festival will run from Culture Night on September 20th to Late Night Art on October 3rd with what will be a programme full of exciting new work. Catalyst are engaging with a mix of established, emerging, local and international artists, utilising different media and approaches to performance that help to redefine what FIX is for Belfast now and what it has been in the past.

The performance dates by the selected artists of this international open call will be scheduled individually together with the artists.

Successful applicants will be informed by Aug 10th. An artist’s fee and travel allowance will be provided for the selected artists.
