Waveform Submissions Open

*Please note submissions for this opportunity have now closed.*

We are excited to announce that submissions for our new artist development programme, Waveform, are now open closed. Through the support of the fantastic Jerwood Charitable Foundation, we’re offering 10 artists the opportunity to develop a new audio-visual performance piece with the potential to premiere it at Flatpack 2019.

So, if you are an artist based in the UK with a passion for AV performance or are interested in pursuing new work exploring sound and moving images then we want to hear from you.

More information about the project as well as how you can apply can be found here.

The submission deadline is 11:59 on Sunday 14th January.
