European Visual Artist Residency, BE FESTIVAL 2013 – deadline 30 January 2013

We will invite an international visual artist to attend BE 2013 on a research residency, drawing inspiration from the festival in order to develop a new visual arts project, again relating to themes of money, transaction, value and alternatives currencies.

We are open to new ideas and love to be surprised, and we would like to receive proposals from:
– Installation artists who want to create an installation that explores the space of the AE Harris factory, and that takes the public on a journey that questions the spatial and conceptual borders between audience and performance.
– Performance artists who want to develop a project/workshop with community participants, to be presented during the festival.

The deadline for submissions is 30 January 2013 and to be considered, please send a completed application form to art(at)

BE FESTIVAL 2013 will take place from 2-7 July in Birmingham. It’s a powerful showcase opportunity as performances are watched by national and international programmers. Companies who performed at BE have since been programmed at London International Mime Festival, The Barbican, South Bank Centre, The Lowry, Leeds Carriageworks, Bilbao ACT Festival, Rome Short Theatre Festival and Sarajevo MESS Festival to name a few.
