"Out in the Shires" - queer arts festival

A call for artists: Out in the Shires - a queer arts festival in Worcester, September 2018.

Produced by Provisional Act Theatre Company in association with Worcestershire Pride.

 Now in our second year and we've got a bit of funding behind us - get in touch if the call for expressions of interest (below) applies to you:

 Provisional Act Theatre Company is seeking expressions of interest for “Out in the Shires”, a 5-day Queer Art Festival in Worcester, that aims to give a platform to LGBTQ+ emerging and established  artists from Worcestershire and other rural shires. The festival will take place between the 18th - 22nd of September 2018. 


Therefore, we are inviting bold, talented and brave Visual Artists, Film Makers (moving image artists), Theatre and Performance makers, Dance artists and Drag artists that create queer art or explore  LGBTQ+ themes, to get in touch with existing work or work in development.

Preference will be given to work by LGBTQ+ artists from non-urban settings, but work by rural artists aimed at LGBTQ+ audiences or LGBTQ+ themed work aimed at rural audiences is also welcome.

Paid opportunity

Please send expressions of interest including information about your work to provisionalact@yahoo.co.uk by the 25th of July 2018 at midday. Please include budgets or fees, and any specific information  on venue and technical requirements.
