This is an open call for contributions for both our September and November 2018 editions. Each scratch lab contains an hour of curated content and small exhibits all capped off with performances from specially invited Guest DJs. An accompanying publication is curated for each event, which may also contain complimentary material that better suits the printed page.
Our September Scratch Lab will deal with the theme”FAILURE” & November presents the challenge of bringing “Tales for the Fireside”
We are seeking submissions from any creative genre that can be translated into the presentation modes of film, spoken word, dance, micro-lecture or other live performance as well as writing or visual art and design pieces that can be woven into the publication. Scratch Lab submissions must be between 5-15 minutes long.
Submissions for the Publication must suit black and white reproduction, translate into A4 presentation at the largest and be no longer than 1,000 words.
Deadline for Submissions;
On Failure – 10pm, Monday 10th September, 2018
Tales for the Fireside – 10pm, Monday 12th November, 2018
Works in progress and creative proposals are especially welcome.
Please use the submission form below or send examples of work to firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: We try to accommodate both acts and audiences so the more information we have about your proposal the better. Especially if you require technical requirements and/or if your work contains sensitive material. For example: Needing a projector and room for a six piece brass band while you climb a wall naked sounds like fun but we’re going to need a heads up first. This also applies to curation; certain things might suit different events and themes better than others, this is to ensure everyone gets the reception they deserve. Submit, get involved and we’ll do our utmost to find you a home at one of our nights and publications.
Please also feel welcome to contact us with any ideas or works that don’t quite fit the strict submission requirements but do handle the larger themes of each evening. We may be able to find clever ways to work with them now or in the future.
May your days be filled with acts of Bravery, Creativity & Generosity.
