Vines Art Festival – Artist Call
Are you passionate about social justice, environmental justice? Are you interested in creating in the outdoors this summer? Do you want to experience perform or create a temporary installation in nature? With a growing community? If so we want to hear from you! Apply to present or create a work for Vines Art Festival 2020.
Vines is inviting artists of all disciplines interested in creating outdoor site-specific works at local Vancouver parks to apply. Performers and visual artists will be given the opportunity to select a specific “earth-stage”. This year we are looking for textile artists and visual artists to create work that can be hung throughout the space. Collaboration is encouraged; applicants can choose to submit new material, as well as pre-existing works that they wish to present within the framework of Vines. Interactive art that allows audience participation is also recommended to connect with the community. We love experimental work and both durational and shorter pieces are accepted. In other words—we are very open! The only stipulation is the theme of work should be connected to the earth, community and/or systemic change. We value the intersectionality of social issues with environmental issues, as humans are a part of, not separate from nature, we invite you to explore what that means to your body. There are revolutions and uprising happening on front-lines throughout so-called Canada and throughout the world, we invite you to create with that in mind.
