It is timed to coincide with a lot of activity in Cardiff over the two-month programme, including Artes Mundi 5, Cardiff Design Festival, Soundtrack Festival, Swn Festival, Experimentica and Made in Roath to attract maximum exposure for the participating artists.
At this stage artists, local, national and international are invited to register their interest for the festival by email only to firstname.lastname@example.org
This call has a rolling deadline.

If you are interested in being commissioned for a new site-specific work please send as above with an additional commissioning proposal (500 words max).
The commissioning process will be based on a dialogue between the artist, the programmers and the venues. If you have an idea we will try to find a suitable space for it.
All artists selected will receive either a commission or a screening fee and there are no registration or submission costs for this event.
