Artist Call Out Food Dialogue

Dialogue Festival: Artist Call Out

Dialogue are seeking an artist to develop an interactive piece of work involving food to open the Dialogue Festival in November 2015. The chosen artist will be given a fee, travel and accommodation to the festival (if needed).

The first Dialogue Festival, Talking/Making/Taking Part, took place at Ovalhouse Theatre in London in November 2014. Featuring the work of more than 15 artists, the festival gave audiences the chance to interact with one-on-one pieces, large-scale participation work and discussions, and also eat together.

The 2015 Dialogue Festival will take place in Plymouth and Exeter in 7 and 8 November, and follow a similar format. Through discussions, performance and food we aim to connect artists and audiences across both cities, exploring big topics through gentle participation and informal conversation.

To find out more see Call Out Document here and see the 2014 Dialogue Festival information and documentation here.

Deadline to apply: 25 September 2015, 5pm
