Deadline for submissions: Friday 16 February, 4pm

Supercrawl is a free annual outdoor art and music festival in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, and the Supercrawl Art Committee is excited to release its Call for Artists for 2018. Every year, Supercrawl issues a call for artist proposals that create creative, compelling and unique environments and experiences for festival-goers. Projects by local, regional, national and international artists are selected based on artistic merit, originality, and ability to integrate within the festival’s scale, spirit and energy. The Committee invites artists working in a wide range of creative disciplines to propose works for installation as part of this year’s event, taking place September 14-16, 2018.

The Committee is interested in seeking proposals in the following areas:
-Identification of distinct Art Zone (i.e.: entryways, banners, etc.)
-Installation art
-Sculpture
-Performance art
-Public interventions

Fees & Resources
Each project selected will be allocated an artist’s fee (in line with CARFAC schedules) and production budget. Costs such as travel and accommodation, where necessary, may be covered and will be addressed on an individual basis. Production assistance may also be available. Supercrawl will also be assigning significant resources to promotion of the event and selected artists leading up to the festival, and during the event. The festival will provide schedule signage, produce posters and handbills, and include programming details both in printed materials and on the Supercrawl website. Audiences are estimated at approximately 50,000 to 75,000 people over the duration of the performance day.
