Open Call | Last Dance: Re-Imagined Futures, Brighton, UK

Application deadline: 16 April

What will culture be like in 2000 years? Lighthouse and Re-Imagine Europe presents Last Dance: Re-Imagined Futures, a series of talks and workshops exploring how DIY (do-it-yourself) culture will shape the future of our society.

Presented from 8 – 26 May 2018, Lighthouse will build on the format of our existing Open Sessions, a series of talks with creative industry professionals focusing on career trajectories.

For the Last Dance: Re-Imagined Futures series, a month long programme of talks, workshops and live sessions will feature pivotal figures who independently contribute to the cultural landscape within Europe, working with music, art, and filmmaking and beyond. The programme currently includes events hosted and devised by Platform B, Audio Active, QM Records, Typical Girls and Normal Not Novelty/Red Bull.

The organisers have two opportunities available to contribute to the Re-Imagined Futures programme. The open call invites proposals for artist exchanges, talks, workshops and live performances by women and self identifying women artists, or curators presenting the work of women or self identifying women. Each accepted proposal will fill one evening, either the 11th May or the 18th May. Successful proposals receive a contribution of up to £1,000. These funds must include your own fee, speaker/workshop leader fees, travel arrangements and additional equipment hire.

Proposals for the Re-Imagined Futures Open Call must touch on one (or more) of the following themes:

– Ritual
– Ceremony
– Belief
– Performance
– The future of culture
