Text Festival call for submissions

Via Tony Trehy

Now this is something I’d highly recommend you make the effort to attend. The Text Festival last year in Bury was one of the highlights of 2009.

Additionally if you think you have a strong enough idea that you’re capable of delivering then there’s an open call, and four projected themes:

The third international Text Festival in Bury, Manchester, UK, will open on 29 April 2011.

Project proposals and submissions are invited – in any artform (sound, media, poetry, visual art, etc) using language in innovative ways. As I have mentioned over the last few months the shape of the next festival has been forming, with some great things in place already. There are more venues and new approaches. In addition to the open call, you can submit ideas in response to 4 projected exhibition themes:

1.Duchamp
2.Sentences
3.Visual Poetry
4.Artists’ Books

Electronic submission (preferred) to

t.trehy@bury.gov.uk

or by mail to
