XTRAX Shorts comes to Mintfest 2014

Platform 4

Open Call for submissions – Closing date: Monday 4th August 2014, 17:00

One of our most popular events returns home as XTRAX Shorts is officially set to be a part of the Mintfest 2014 showcase weekend in Kendal.

XTRAX Shorts is a strand of showcasing developed by XTRAX which launched at Mintfest in Kendal in 2011. It is designed to complement our showcase programme by providing an opportunity for artists to give a presentation to an audience of promoters and street arts professionals about new outdoor projects.

This open call means we will be accepting applications from ALL artists – including UK and international artists and artists from all segments of the outdoor arts sector – and we are particularly keen to see submissions which illustrate the diverse and imaginative nature of the outdoor arts sector.

We will be choosing approximately 12 submissions for presentation.
Presentations will take place on Saturday 30th August – 10:30 – 12:00 and Sunday 31st August – 11:00 – 12:00

These submissions will be presented live to Mintfest 2014 Showcase delegates; many of whom attend XTRAX Shorts to see shows which they may want to support, and book for their own programmes and festivals, in the future. It is also designed to support artists by empowering them through creating networking opportunities with others in the sector and to build confidence in their own idea.
