Emergency, hÅb's annual platform for live art and contemporary performance is now open for proposals.

Our twentieth Emergency takes place on Saturday 21 September, 12noon-10pm.  This year it's a little bit different as it takes place in two locations: daytime (12-5pm approx) in Manchester's NIAMOS; and evening (5-10pm approx) in Z-arts (incl. STUN Studio).

The callout for proposals is open until Friday 9 August, 5pm.

With a whole range of spaces to fill — what we now need is a lots of great work! 

Artists working in live art and contemporary performance are invited to submit proposals of short pieces of work, works-in-progress, or extracts of longer works for inclusion in this event. 

For daytime work at NIAMOS we are looking for durational, performance installation, intervention and limited capacity and 1-2-1 work.  Opened in 1902 and formerly a theatre, cinema, BBC recording studio and church, NIAMOS is now being run by a co-operative as a holistic well-being space. Please note, whilst very atmospheric, it is in significant state of disrepair, and a site-specific approach might be best taken when thinking about work for it.  Wherever possible work should be low tech using domestic or battery powered equipment. Access is challenging. 

We are particularly looking for a bigger durational piece that might work for the NIAMOS main auditorium/stage area (see info attached) and recognise this might need more resources.  If you have an idea for this, please get in touch to discuss. 

For evening work at Z-arts/STUN we are looking for short (20 min max) show-type work. 

To get a feel for it, have a look at the 2018 programme + gallery of images.

Emergency is: 
• a pay-what-you-decide, public micro-festival + open submission platform; 
• 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 maximum in duration; low-tech or no-tech, and suitable for quick turnarounds; self-supporting in terms of props, set, equipment, and specialised technology.

As this seems to be a recurrent question: whilst we don't encourage it, you are permitted to submit more than one proposal but it is unlikely that more than one would be successful from a single artist/group. 

Please note: 
• Emergency typically features at least 20 short pieces of work throughout the day/evening; 
• our technology resources are limited, please bear this in mind when making a proposal; 
• Emergency 2019 will offer an honorarium of up to £100 per piece selected, to cover fees/expenses.
• There may be more resources available for a larger durational piece for the NIAMOS auditorium/stage area.

To apply: 
• download the Emergency Open Call Guidance Notes (see attachment below); 
• complete the Online Proposal form
• complete the Online Monitoring form (please do, it really helps us!).

Emergency our annual platform for live art and contemporary performance, is coming of age! 

To get a feel for it, have a look at the 2016 programme and gallery. In 2017 the eighteenth Emergency takes place on Saturday 30 September, at Z-arts, Manchester (12-10pm) with the callout for proposals open from Wednesday 5 July to Friday 11 August, 5pm 

With a whole range of spaces to fill - what we now need is a lots of great work! Whilst Emergency isn't themed, if anybody would like to create an eighteenth birthday celebration, we'd be more than amenable, and might be able to top the budget up a bit for the right project!     

So…  
Artists working in live art and contemporary performance are invited 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; performance installation and intervention-based works in and around the spaces.

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.

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.

To get a feel for it, have a look at the 2012 programme and gallery.    

In 2013 the fourteenth Emergency takes place on Saturday 5 October, at BLANKSPACE (12-4pm) and Z-arts (3-11pm) with the callout for proposals open from Friday 12 July to Wednesday 14 August, 5pm — details are posted here and at emergencymcr.org   

With a whole range of spaces to fill - and the journey between spaces to think about too - what we now need is a lots of great work! So...    

Artists working in live art, contemporary performance, time-based media and interdisciplinary arts are invited 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.    

We also strongly encourage durational, one to one and limited capacity work; performance installation and intervention-based works in and around the spaces and on the journey from BLANKSPACE to Z-arts.    

Emergency cannot pay fees or expenses (though we do feed you quite well!) 

To apply:    

  • Download the Emergency Open Call Guidance Notes (below);     
  • Complete the Online Proposal form (selecting Open, Upstairs commission or both);   
  • Complete the Online Monitoring form (please, it really helps us!);       

DEADLINE Wed 14 August 2013, 5pm.   

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;    
  • Able to co-exist with other pieces – so neither loud (preferably unamplified), nor overly sensitive to external noise spill.   

To apply:   

  • Download the Emergency Open Call Guidance Notes (below);    
  • Download the BLANKSPACE Upstairs Guidance Notes (below);    
  • Complete the Online Proposal form (selecting Open, Upstairs commission or both);

For some reason, best known unto itself, these have gone up in a funny order!

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.

Emergency 2012, Saturday 13 October 2012

Call for proposals - now closed

Terrifyingly It's that time again and no sooner has the sun set on Hazard than Emergency pops its head over the horizon!  We're losing count, but we think it's the 13th Manchester outing for this marathon of art and bizarreness - taking place as part of the Manchester Weekender on Saturday 13 October. The 13th Emergency on the 13th... are we tempting fate?

Now things are more settled, we've lost the 'accommodation' moniker - but have gained a venue or two! For the first time, we become a proper, multi-sited micro-festival - with three venues: two whole galleries and a theatre! All within walking distance, we're trying to coin a catchy name for the M15 triangle they cover but haven't come up with anything great yet!

Divided into a daytime of largely interaction, intervention, one on ones and durational performance; and an evening of more show-type work we are delighted to be in:

Daytime:  BLANKSPACE (M15 6AW) and Castlefield Gallery (M15 4GB)

Evening:  Z-arts (M15 5ZA)

Click here for map.

With a whole range of spaces to fill - and the journey between spaces to think about too - what we now need is a lots of great work! So...

Artists working in live art, contemporary performance, time-based media and interdisciplinary arts are invited 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.

The event’s objectives are to be: 

  • 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. 

Spaces available comprise: 

  • Daytime – two gallery spaces and a series of unusual spaces best suited to intimate work.
  • Evening – a black-box theatre (220 capacity); a partially equipped studio (capacity 70) suitable for lecture-performance type work ; a café-bar with stage suitable for intervention and cabaret.

 (download Info Sheet below for details before proposing work)

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.

Proposals are also strongly encouraged for durational, one to one and limited capacity work; performance installation and intervention-based works in and around the spaces and on the journey between BLANKSPACE and Castlefield Gallery

Emergency cannot pay fees or expenses (though we do feed you quite well!)

Final selection will be by a panel consisting of Tamsin Drury and John Franklin of hÅb, John Leyland of Blank Media Collective and Clarissa Corfe of Castlefield Gallery on the basis of suitability to the artistic parameters of hÅb/Blank Media Collective/Castlefield Gallery, and technical and logistical feasibility.

To apply:

  • Download the information below.
  • Complete the application form at http://lanb.it/b8ja 
  • Complete the monitoring form (please it helps us with reporting!) at http://lanb.it/Dg3n

In addition to the main call for proposals above, 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 a big challenge 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.  

Sound sensitivity is therefore crucial.

The piece we are looking for must be:

  • Durational
  • For a group audience that can come and go 
  • Able to co-exist with other pieces – so neither loud, nor overly sensitive to external noise spill.

To apply:

  • Download the information below.
  • Complete the application form at http://lanb.it/5xVE
  • Complete the monitoring form (please it helps us with reporting!) at http://lanb.it/Dg3n
  • IMPORTANT WHEN SUBMITTING FORMS PLEASE 'SHARE LOCATION' - there's a chance it will fail if you don't (especially in FireFox)
  • Additional inclusion of a video submission is strongly encouraged – please include a YouTube or Vimeo or similar link on your form.

So, one day to go and get-ins are well underway!  Someone described BLANKSPACE as a 'maze of performance' yesterday which is quite fitting!

Weather willing (you never know - it might be sunny now but...) we're also planning a little finale, hosted by Doodlebug to which you are all invited to contribute.

For a bit more about the event, you can listen to my very rapid run-down on NoiseGeneration

Just to let you know, that while there is no catering at BLANKSPACE, the (very nice) IABF cafe is open all day.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

It's getting scarily close now and the attempt to shoehorn 30 pieces into a single day currently seem like one of my more over-ambitious efforts!  Hopefully the magic that is the former greenroom tech team will kick in and my lunacy won't seem so mad after all!

Following the full programme information - though, as ever, all still subject to change!
