SUPERNORMAL 2012 call for artist proposals
a unique artist-led event - 10-12th August 2012
Deadline for Proposals: 31st March 2012
Now in it's third year, (having evolved from Braziers International Artists'Workshop), SUPERNORMAL offers a platform for visual arts and artists of all disciplines to draw inspiration from the event's unique ethos and setting. An opportunity for dialogue, exchange and exploration of art-focused practice and action in an experimental environment where risks can be taken and leaps of imagination can occur. We encourage participation in the festival as both artist and spectator to give the arts a wider audience and artists a greater challenge outside the conventional gallery space - putting the arts at the heart of the festival.
Proposals & Selection Process
Proposals will go through a selection process and will be judged on the quality of the idea, along with an understanding of the context and audience of Supernormal. As an event that promotes an amalgam of experimental art and music, we will be looking for work that may offer a different viewing or participatory experience - that engages and inspires thought, whether challenging or easily accessible. The work should show understanding of the audience for an event that promotes experimental art and music and work that breaks new ground.
Supernormal welcomes proposals from artists, performers and groups as detailed above. Please include an outline of your idea, work or project in as much detail as possible along with any supporting images and links. (up to 750 words)
Funding & Resources
Supernormal is a not-for-profit event with an invisible budget and limited resources, although we are currently working on funding proposals to assist in the production of work. We would encourage artists to source outside funding where possible. We can provide artists with guest passes to the event, food and drinks, promotion of projects and profiles.
