Open Call: Divine Locale Arts Fest 2017

Recent University of Derby Fine Art Graduates are directing a volunteer-led arts festival in Derby. We are looking for recent arts graduates and emerging artists to exhibit within various spaces including a multi-story empty shop converted into a temporary exhibition space and a chapel. The festival is going to be held at the end of August.

We are accepting work that responds to the theme locality. It benefits if the work is socially engaging and engages with the Public Sphere. We welcome a variety of work and disciplines, including Live Performance, Installation, Photography, Print, Digital Media, Sculpture and Painting. We
encourage submissions that embody collaborative, relational and participatory practice.

You may submit up to 2 pieces of work along with a Submission Fee of £4
