BEAM Festival 2011

BEAM currently have three Open Call opportunities for artists wishing to share their work at this year’s festival. Categories for these opportunities are:

  • OPEN SPACE: A platform for artists to exhibit or perform their own work at the festival. We are offering a free weekend pass and accommodation on site to 10 selected OPEN SPACE artists. All OPEN SPACE submissions should refer to the broad themes of music & technology, interactivity, electronic music, music produced through unusual interfaces (including sonic robots!) and home-made instruments. Installations, performances, demonstrations; we’re into anything interactive whether it be beautiful, intense, playful, dramatic, mesmerising or shocking! Finished pieces and works-in-progress are all welcome.*

For pre-recorded or remote media, submissions can also be made for:

  • BEAM TRAIN: Podcasts, recordings and interactive games that will be available through the BEAM website to captivate and entertain festival-goers on their tube journey from central London to Uxbridge Station.
  • BEAM ONLINE: A category for anyone who wants to share related work but can’t get to the festival. Your work will be uploaded to the BEAM Festival website.
