Artists

Our artistic programme is largely created through the following three methods:

  • A SpareParts open-call once a year for artists to apply to and share their work. This includes walkabout acts, static performances as well as parade pieces. Our open-call details will be posted here, but you may also wish to connect with us on social media too, where you can keep up-to-date on our opportunities 
  • Commission opportunities linked to an annual theme. Commission details will be posted here, but you may also wish to connect with us on social media too, where you can keep up-to-date on our opportunities 
  • We approach artists and companies directly, based on performances we have seen at other events and showcases that artistically resonate with the annual theme, setting and partner.

If you are presenting work at a festival and would like to send our Artistic Director an invitation, or have a digital film of your work that you would like to share, you can send through by email.
