Festival of Thrift: One Beautiful Moment Artist Call Out back to listing

Although a large-scale festival is off the cards for 2020, the Festival of Thrift team are working hard to develop new ways of connecting with their communities online and through other routes. To support this work and celebrate the launch of festival activities, VIEWPOINTS will commission ‘One Beautiful Moment’ which can be engaged with through virtual means and will encourage audience participation. 

They are inviting artists to propose work for ‘One Beautiful Moment’ to launch the festival on the weekend of Saturday 12 September 2020, and are seeking creative ideas that are high quality, engaging, and accessible, but also challenging and thought provoking. The work must have the ability to be presented online, and they are particularly interested in those that include a live participatory element.

Artists are asked to respond to the broad theme of future sustainability, to be interpreted in whichever way they see fit. Proposals will be welcomed that explore how we can address what we, as a society, have learned about our impact on the environment in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. They welcome proposals which include an element of community engagement or participation either online, remotely, or in a way which follow social distancing measures, and that could allow for participation of those that may not have access to the internet.

Proposal deadline: Friday 10 July
