Electrofringe is now calling for proposals for the 2011 festival as part of the This Is Not Art (TINA) group of festivals in Newcastle. The five-day festival of electronic arts and culture will take place from the 29th September – 3rd October, 2011.

Electrofringe is committed to fostering creative and innovative uses of technology and electronic art forms, while focusing on artistic development and skills exchange. We are looking to unearth emergent forms, present innovative work and encourage interesting uses of technology. Electrofringe is interested in works that reflect all modes of creative practice.

For the 2011 festival, Electrofringe will be implementing a new arts-lab initiative for artists to work with and learn from one another. If you are an electronic artist (or a collective of artists) interested in presenting your work, discussing and developing it with feedback from members of your community, sharing your skills and/or collaborating with other artists to experiment and make work with during the period of the festival, we want to hear from you.

Proposals are accepted from a broad range of investigations including cross-disciplinary practice, media-based practice, networked and online collaborations, locative technologies, mobile artworks, live art, software art, electronics, experimental interfaces, sound, music, video, film, installation, performance and much, much more.
