Infecting the City-Call for submissions 2015-Cape Town

The Africa Centre is calling for proposals for Infecting The City Public Arts Festival that will be held from the 9th – 14th March 2015

We would appreciate it if you could put a link up on your website, Call for Proposals – Infecting the City and/or distribute this call to your networks and anyone who might be interested in applying.

I have also attached a PDF of this letter which can be forwarded

Infecting The City unfolds on the streets and various other public spaces in the Central Business District of Cape Town. The Festival provides an unusual opportunity for art, music, dance and performance to leave the confines of theatres and galleries to engage with or disrupt Cape Town’s daily activities.  The Festival's programme challenges audiences, pushes boundaries, shifts perspectives and helps to make sense of the public spaces we occupy.


After its most successful year in 2014 with 54 productions, 440 participating artists, and 32,000 audience members, this call is for works from two categories: New Works and Restaged Works.  Visual, performing artists and practitioners from other disciplines are invited to submit. The work can be a full ensemble piece, intervention, live performance, installation, video, totally interactive or some other form newly imagined. All works should translate to or work within a public environment, and actively engage intentional and incidental audiences alike.  For more details about the call, time frames and process go to the webpage.  The deadline for this submission is the 15th August 2014 at 17h00. The short list will be released in mid-September 2014. Please watch theFacebook page for more announcements.


Kind Regards
