Call for Performering Artists
We are looking for a wide range of indoor and outdoor Site Specific work, Main Stage performances and street performers to participate in the 2007 Junction Arts Festival. Site Specific
The Junction has an historical and architectural uniqueness yet to be discovered. Stores, alleys, studios and more uncover a history that few no about; spaces that are ideal for live performance and installations. Performances will be encouraged to run for 2 days/nights prior to the street closure making 4 days/nights in total. Historical background on the Junction is available.
A large main stage will host work that requires a more traditional setting. These shows will run from 12noon to 11pm on Saturday and 12noon to 6pm on Sunday. All lighting, sound and stage management will be supplied.
We are also looking for performers to participate in off the curb performance art attacks. Dancers, musicians, actors, poets, and more will be contracted to work the street in impromptu art attacks that spontaneously spring upon an unsuspecting audience. Individuals and or groups are welcome to apply. Individuals please send C.V. and photo. Groups please send info package.
The Junction Arts Festival is the largest and most eclectic “art-meets-street” festival in Canada. The festival emphasizes a celebration of all arts, with a multi-disciplinary stance, using site-specific installations in unconventional spaces. This artist run festival welcomes both established and emerging artists. We make a concerted effort to appeal to both artists and potential audiences who may not have a clear understanding of the arts but are interested in learning and appreciating art no matter what form it takes.
The Junction Arts Festival traditionally attracts over 100,000 people when the festival has been only two days.
