Found Festival 2015
Found Festival is a multidisciplinary found space arts festival exhibiting explosive and dynamic new works in a variety of unconventional spaces in Edmonton, Alberta.
Eligibility: Any artistic discipline: music dance, visual art, film, theatre, writing, etc. Projects can be previously produced work or new work. We accept one-minute performance, daylong endurance art pieces and everything in between. You must define yourself or your project as contributing to the emerging Edmonton arts scene. We accept project submissions and individual submissions!
Now in its fourth year, Found is a living, breathing showcase of dance, theatre, visual art, music, film, creative writing and more all in unexpected places. The aim is to produce an event that is affordable, accessible, interactive, and empowering, encouraging artists to contribute to the cultural landscape of the city.
Our past venues have included a funeral home, residential garage, and a Dodge grand caravan. We’ve had live music played off rooftops, movies projected onto buildings, and a play performed— in the middle of June— on a giant pile of snow. Some pieces are designed for as few as 5 people at a time, with others accommodating as many as 200. We are committed to presenting innovative, entertaining, and provocative new works which push the boundaries of audience interaction, allowing both spectators and performers to engage in a more stimulating brand of risk-taking and play.
Deadline for Submissions: December 20, 2014
