OPEN CALL FROM THE HALL
Westport Town Hall are working on putting a new programme in place for what we hope will be the dawn of an exciting new and restorative era for our Arts and Entertainment sector as we strive to make our way back from the devastating blow to our industry as a result of the Corona Virus Pandemic.
As part of the process for presenting events, workshops and exhibitions for the coming year, Westport Town Hall is putting an open call in place for local, national and international artists to submit their best and boldest proposals to have their work considered for presentation at our venue. The call is open to both amateur and professional multi-cultural artists across a wide range of both traditional and contemporary artforms such as: Multi-Disciplinary Arts, Digital Arts, Theatre, Dance, Music, Opera, Circus, Participatory Projects, Performance Lectures, Multimedia Storytelling, Workshop-based Projects, Politically Engaged Projects, Fashion - the list is endless!
We are currently working at a reduced capacity as we continue to adhere to all health and safety guidelines put in place by the HSE as we endeavour to live alongside the global pandemic that is Covid 19. We ask that anyone making submissions/proposals of their work be mindful of such restrictions to our capacity that will likely continue into 2021. Such restrictions may indeed be an opportunity for artists who are creating new online work or who's performance is better suited to our space which, despite restrictions - social distancing is achievable but most of all comfortable.
Artists/Organisations wishing to make a submission should complete this FORM online and please share with any of your contacts that you think may be interested in presenting their work in Westport.
