Phoenix Square call for proposals – deadline 20th of each month

The submission guidelines and event checklist for Phoenix Square proposals are now available, as attached. If you have a proposal to submit, please e mail the event checklist directly to me at .

We generally review proposals on the last Tuesday of every month. Therefore I suggest you submit proposals to me by the 20th of the month if you wish to be considered at that month’s meeting. Each proposal is reviewed by the Digital Team at Phoenix, including myself, Tom Holley (the Artistic Director) and Chris Tyrer (the Digital Administrative Assistant).

Currently we are looking to fill Cube slots from early 2011 onwards. Cube exhibitions run for six weeks, with one week for setup and one week for teardown. Cube artists are usually expected to present one public talk at Phoenix as well. We also welcome one-off performance proposals for the Screen Lounge. These will be slotted as space is available, but generally they run every second Saturday from 9 pm onwards.

Please be aware that DMU staff and students cannot receive an artist fee for exhibiting or performing at Phoenix. A smallish material budget is available.

Please see for an overview of the venues.

If you have any questions feel free to e mail back.
