Dublin Fringe Festival Wants You – Applications 2009
The 15th Dublin Fringe Festival is now inviting submissions for its annually anticipated, culture jamming line-up of contemporary arts this September.
This year, we want to present works which confront, embrace and defy this period of remarkable change and challenges. From celebrating the fresh re-emergence of DIY culture, reclaiming more of our city’s empty spaces, experimenting with theatre and performance and delving into experiential arts on a grand and minute scale, to encountering home grown and international arts on the street and in even more unexpected places, the Fringe’s 2009 programme will not shy away from exploration of where we are and how we got here; as a city, nation and international community or makers, doers, seers and thinkers. To do this, we need you, artists and thinkers, to make it happen. We want to hear your ideas whether you work in theatre, music, dance, visual art, street-art, film, multi-media or beyond.
Dublin Fringe Festival has long served as a spring-board for fresh new Irish and international artistic voices, as well as a home for risk-taking and cutting edge performance from more established artists. This year we are looking for artists across all disciplines to imagine Dublin with a new vision for the time we live in; to be brave, bold and uncompromising in their engagement with the cultural, social and physical landscape of the city and to once again invigorate, investigate, challenge, defy, excite and inspire its audience.
As a year round organisation which aims to promote, nurture and engage Irish artists, this year the Fringe will once again present a series of pre-application talks open to all interested parties on Tuesday 17 February. Topics that will be covered include: Online application process, supporting material requirements, financial deals offered by the festival and fundraising.
Closing Deadline for applications is Friday 3 April at 6pm.
