Infecting The City -Public Arts Festival 2016

The Africa Centre is calling for Curation and Artwork proposals for Infecting The City -Public Arts Festival 2016, which will be held from the 7th – 12th March 2016.

Infecting The City unfolds on the streets and various other public spaces in the Central Business District (CBD) of Cape Town. The Festival provides an unusual opportunity for visual art, music, dance and performance to leave the confines of theatres and galleries to engage with or disrupt Cape Town’s daily movements.  The Festival’s programme challenges audiences, shifts perspectives and helps to make sense of the public spaces we occupy.

Infecting The City experienced another successful year in 2015 with 53 artworks, 290 participating artists, and over 38,000 audience members.

This call is both for curators and artists. Infecting the City is seeking proposals from established curators/artistic directors to develop programmes within the Festival. And the festival is also seeking artworks in two categories: New Works and Restaged Works.  Visual, performing artists and practitioners from other disciplines are invited to submit. The work can be a full ensemble piece, intervention, installation, video, totally interactive or some other form newly imagined. All works should translate to or work within a public environment, and actively engage intentional and incidental audiences alike.  For more details about the call, time frames and process go to the webpage.

CURATORS – Deadline: 30th June 2015

ARTISTS – Deadline: 15th July 2015
