Open Call for Submissions
You are invited to submit a proposal to Experimentica, Chapter’s annual festival of Live and Time-Based Arts

Over the last 7 years we have presented inspiring performance art from Japan, Canada, China and Mexico, cutting edge dance from Canada, Brazil, Australia and Korea alongside a selection of innovative performance, film, dance, music and installations from Wales.

Experimentica is an opportunity for recent graduates and experienced artists alike to present challenging, boundary defining new works within an international context. The five day event provides a focus for debate on issues surrounding performance and time based media and the opportunity to take risks and experiment.

To be a part of Experimentica 08 submit a written proposal that includes:
- a descriptive statement of intended work/artists statement outlining specific concerns and interests.
- technical requirements and details of most appropriate venue or location
- any supporting materials (photos/slides/dvds/cds etc.)
- full contact details

Events will take place across a wide range of studio, cinema and public spaces at Chapter
and in site specific locations. Chapter is able to provide technical support and resources for
the production and exhibition of selected works as well as provide accommodation in Cardiff for the duration of the event.

We are also looking for people to make written responses to the festival on the Experimentica blog, so if you’re an artist, a poet or polemicist interested in writing about live art we want to hear from you. Successful applicants will get an access all areas pass to the festival plus accommodation and per diems.

Address your entries to: Experimentica 08
Chapter, Market Rd, Canton, Cardiff. CF5 1QE. Wales
(Please include an SAE for return of materials)

If you have any questions or need advice on what to include in your proposal, please contact Cathy Boyce at Chapter on 029 2031 1050 /

Deadline for submissions: 11 July 2008
