Emergency form fixed... fingers crossed... new deadline is Thu 15 August midday

Sorry to anyone who was having a problem submitting the form. We think we've traced the problem - some very large attachments which took us over our storage limit... so anyone sending an image, could you keep it down to max 1mb please.

New deadline is Thu 15 August midday

Taking place on Saturday 5 October at BLANKSPACE  and Z-arts, Manchester, we now invite artists working in live art, contemporary performance, time-based media and interdisciplinary arts to submit proposals of short pieces of work, works in progress or extracts of longer works for inclusion in this event. Proposals are also encouraged for durational, one to one and limited capacity work and performance installation and works which inhabit the journey between the spaces.   

Emergency is:    
  • a free public micro-festival;   
  • an opportunity for artists to meet, show and peer review work;   
  • a selection event for a number of small Works Ahead commissions to be developed & supported by hÅb;        
Work can be in any relevant artform/medium, though some live presence is desirable. Show-type work should be 20 minutes max in duration, low tech and suitable for quick turnarounds, self-supporting in terms of props/set/equipment and specialised technology.    

DEADLINE Thu 15 August 2013, midday.
Emergency cannot pay fees or expenses (though we do feed you quite well!)   

BLANKSPACE Upstairs Commission    
In addition we are looking for one durational piece, working within specific criteria, to occupy the Main Exhibition Space, upstairs at BLANKSPACE. We realise that the criteria are specific and there is therefore a budget of £250 available for this work. This is a challenging space – as it is surrounded by alcoves, in which there will be small performances and interactions taking place, with no sound baffling.  

The piece we are looking for must be durational, for a group audience that can come and go and able to co-exist with other pieces – so neither loud (preferably unamplified), nor overly sensitive to external noise spill.   

To apply for the Emergency Open Call, The BLANKSPACE Upstairs Commission, or both:

Complete the Online Proposal form (selecting Open, Upstairs commission or both);   
Complete the Online Monitoring form (please, it really helps us!);    
NB please keep image attachments to max 1mb.
Keep an eye on the Emergency blog 

DEADLINE Thu 15 August 2013, midday.

Emergency 2013 is presented by Word of Warning; produced by hÅb + Blank Media Collective and supported by Arts Council England, Manchester City Council and Z-arts.  

Technical problem with Emergency form - deadline extended to midday Thu 15th... read on...

If you're having problems with the Emergency form at http://habarts.wufoo.eu/forms/emergency-2013-proposal-form/, then please wait...

After weeks of working fine it appears to have fallen over, so I'm just trying to find out what's going on.  

We'll leave it open til at least midday tomorrow, or later if need be - mail me at emergency@habarts.org and let me know if you're having a problem (what browser you're using would be good too.

Thanks

Emergency schedules revealed!

At the risk of being proven hideously wrong, below are the planned for schedules for Emergency this coming Saturday13 October.  Please remember, as ever, it's all subject to change!

To try and make things easy for you, for the daytime we've created a 'planner' of what's happening when and where.  The journey between BLANKSPACE and Castlefield Gallery is about 6 minutes on foot - but you might encounter Sam Treadaway or Larkin' About's MixTapes en route.

Tip for the day - make sure you get to BLANKSPACE sometime between 12 + 1.30 to catch Kitty Graham's piece!

The evening is much easier - just come to Z-arts by 6pm and you'll be pointed in the right direction!

To dowload look for the small download text link at the bottom of the document preview.
