CALL FOR ARTISTS - INTEGRATE ARTS FESTIVAL, AUGUST 2013.
The Integrate Art Society is currently considering submissions from visual artists for its annual festival (formerly “Off the Grid Art Crawl”) taking place in Victoria, BC on August 23th and 24th, 2013.
The mandate of the Integrate Art Society is to enhance the provincial and national awareness of the thriving arts community in Victoria, BC. Through the Integrate Arts Festival, IAS will develop a unified creative collective, which is comprised of local artists, museums, artist-run centres and public and commercial art galleries.
The Integrate Arts Festival will offer an opening reception, a mass art crawl, independent artist exhibitions, indoor and outdoor performances, daytime arts activities and a finale celebration. These events will introduce participants to aspects of the community that they were not previously aware of, including local galleries, theatre companies, dance troupes, musical ensembles, maker spaces, and visual artists. It is an excellent opportunity to connect in a celebratory way with the arts community in Victoria!
Preference will be given to artists without major gallery representation and to work that is unique and two dimensional (mixed media, collage, acrylics, oils, watercolour, photography are all acceptable). Possible venues to consider include storefronts, pop-up galleries, outdoor street and sidewalk areas. The IAS is not able to provide compensation for time, travel, or other expenses. However, artists are able to sell work on site upon agreement with venue owner. With assistance from IAS, artists are responsible for the set-up and takedown of their work. To apply please send your full name, biography and portfolio of work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for submissions: April 19th, 2013
Announcement of acceptance: May 31st, 2012
