Deadline for submissions Tuesday, June 15, 2010




We are looking for exciting, engaging contemporary artists! Consider this your invitation to the 2010 festival!

THE FESTIVAL

For ten years, Eastern Edge Gallery has organized an annual summer arts festival, the 24 Hour Art Marathon. The 24 Hour Art Marathon Festival celebrates all contemporary forms of artistic disciplines with a variety of activities: performance art, spoken word, video, contemporary music, artist talks, workshops, screenings, an outdoor soap-box stage as well as the marathon event; 24 hours of creative madness.

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

We include artists of all ages and experience, providing opportunities for younger artists to interact with more experienced artists and access a wide range of artistic expression. We’re highly participatory with an eye to develop young artists and audiences while celebrating achievement in contemporary art. We complement Eastern Edge’s yearly programming by offering artistic diversity with a focus on community outreach and audience participation.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

Artists are encouraged to propose a variety of contemporary art actions from small to big which could include:
performances (site-specific or staged)
local community collaboration (interactive works)
video/sound/off-site installation
workshops (for all ages or specific)

The festival committee will review all proposals and may contact artists for further information and planning. Eastern Edge is dedicated to paying artists professional fees.
