Deadline for applications: Monday 8 August, 5pm
Made in Roath is an artist-led event, now in its 8th year, which aims to take art out of the gallery and into the wider community, offering a larger and broader audience access to the wealth of creative activity in the neighbourhood. This year’s madeinroath festival will run from 9 to 16 October 2016.
It showcases the work of emerging and established artists, makers, musicians, writers and performers, who use the whole of Roath as the venue, including domestic, commercial, public and overlooked or disused spaces. You do not need to be a Roath resident to participate in the festival.
The organisers are looking for expressions of interest from artists who would like to be part of madeinroath’s visual art 2016 programme. The potential manifestations of artwork are wide ranging, and could include performance, sound, installation, happenings, movement/dance, events, sculptural, public intervention, video, spoken and written work, light works, photography and 2D. Artists working in any media are able to apply and we encourage applications from artists at any stage of their career. Artists will be appointed based on their proposal, with a view to appointing a range of projects from a variety disciplines.
For the first time Made in Roath festival has a curatorial theme, which is the word FOLD. The introduction of a curatorial theme, and the word FOLD itself, has been determined as a response to the current political and social situation within the UK, communities, and the ongoing development of Made in Roath as a community arts festival. However, they are welcoming applications which address and interpret the word FOLD in any capacity.
There is funding available for projects for any amount between £1 – £500.
