Call for Proposals – Third Shift 2022: Peripheries
THIRD SHIFT Call for Proposals: PERIPHERIES
THIRD SHIFT is an annual festival of public contemporary artworks. The event holds space for new experiences and communal exchange through the exhibition of temporary public art installations, performances, and screenings. THIRD SHIFT will take place in Saint John, New Brunswick from August 19 – 21, 2022.
THIRD SHIFT: PERIPHERIES aims to explore, imagine, and critique limits, boundaries, and structures that create experiences at, or with, the periphery. We are seeking proposals for artwork that explores different ways of seeing, employs obscurity and abstraction or presents things out of focus (as in peripheral vision). Proposals could also present artwork that refers to geographical peripheries such as shared experiences in rural areas or with borders, explorations of peripheries of reality and consciousness, or investigations of real and perceived power dynamics. We encourage applicants to share experiences of existing on the periphery of a situation, community, or industry, and/or critically examine our personal and collective surroundings. This theme is intentionally broad and, as such, can be interpreted in a multitude of ways. The proposed projects can take almost any form, from installation to performance. We encourage applicants to interpret the theme creatively. We value experimentation and collaboration.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: March 13, 2022
NEED HELP? Application assistance is available for anyone who faces disability-related barriers to completing an online application and/or Indigenous applicants facing language, geographic and/or cultural barriers within the online application process.
