emergency accommodation - call for proposals

Saturday 1 October, 2011 - noon til 10pm
BLANKSPACE & International Anthony Burgess Foundation (IABF), Manchester.

In the wake of the closure of greenroom, our long running emergency platform has fled the safe confines of its black-box home and is taking shelter in the arms of BLANKSPACE and IABF.
This will be an emergency like you've never seen it before!
We DON'T have a fully fledged theatre or lots of equipment or money...
We DO have some really interesting spaces and a lot of energy to make something exciting happen!


If you would like to join us in creating this unique emergency event, then send us a proposal for low-tech short performative works, durationals, one-to-ones, performance installations or interventions to happen in these two spaces, and even on the journey in between.
Full details of how to apply and of the spaces available below:
Open for proposals from 12 July,
Deadline 5pm 19 August 2011.

Enquiries: emergency@habarts.org or leave a message at 07837 229 8177  
produced by: hÅb & Blank Media Collective
supported by:  The Burgess Foundation, Contact, LANWest, Arts Council England
greenroom legacy project.

For those who didn't  make the open evening, if you want to get a general feel of the amazing spaces, (www.blankmediacollective.org) there is generally someone at BLANKSPACE weekdays 1-6pm

IABF's cafe is open  8am - 5pm weekdays, 10am - 5pm at weekends

In both cases, ask nicely and I'm sure they'll let you have a look around!
