Horizons Festival 2020 – Call Out for Expressions of Interest

This opportunity is aimed at Northern-based artists and companies from refugee backgrounds.

Horizons Festival celebrates international arts and global culture and runs alongside Refugee Week. The festival features a week long programme of theatre, film, art, performance, workshops and debate showcasing the artistic talent of refugees and migrants.

The festival takes place at HOME, Manchester and is co-produced with Community Arts North West (CAN). The third Horizons Festival will take place between 13 and 20 June 2020.

The festival would like to hear from Northern-based artists and companies from refugee backgrounds who might like to perform or share creative work at the festival. Collaborating artists may be from other backgrounds, as long as the work is refugee-led.

The festival are interested in hearing about projects that are ready to book and those in development. We are also interested in hearing about projects which have funding that may be looking for partnership support in terms of venue or talent development. 

To submit: send a brief statement about your project outlining your practice and how you might like to be involved with the festival. Including costings and any funding or partnerships you have in place and links or examples of your work if you have them, to:  anne.kershaw@homemcr.org and katherine@can.uk.com

Additional information:
Each year Horizons Festival supports a national campaign. For 2020 the festival will be highlighting issues around Destitution and the Home Office’s Hostile Environment policy. Artists may wish to respond to this theme. However CAN and HOME are interested in a diverse range of work and different sources of artistic inspirations.

Deadline: 13 January, 5pm
