FRESH AiR LIVE ART PLATFORM
SATURDAY 12 MARCH 2011
Deadline for proposals: 11 FEBRUARY 2011
FRESH AiR is a new initiative from Queen Mary, University of London offering recent Live Art graduates and emergent artists in London support, advice, professional development and a performance platform.
FRESH AiR includes an open submissions platform, mentoring and critical feedback for programmed artists, and FRESH TIPS – a day of information and advice from experienced artists on Sunday 13 March.
The FRESH AiR PLATFORM is aimed at artists who are at the beginning of their practice and have made at least one professionally presented piece of Live Art. It is an opportunity for artists to introduce their practice to audiences, peers, and promoters, to work with a mentor, to participate in a critical feedback session, and to attend FRESH TIPS.
The FRESH AiR PLATFORM will take place in a range of spaces at Queen Mary, University of London. Artists will be selected on an open submission basis from their written applications by a small team of lecturers and Associate Artists from Queen Mary, and the Live Art Development Agency.
Artists wishing to present their work in the FRESH AiR PLATFORM should submit a written proposal with an application form by 11 February 2011 at the very latest.
Please note that we can only accept applications received by email.
