AN ARTS society is looking for three artists to help with a live art festival.

Chapter is planning a live art festival in Cardiff – called Experimentica – which will encourage risk, collaboration and exchange between artists and audiences; they are looking for three artists to make new work for their interim ‘EXPERIMENTICA Presents’ strand.

The society is looking for artists based in the UK whose practice, prior to coronavirus, focused on live art or contemporary performance and who need support to explore ways of adapting their approach to making and sharing their work.

Each commission will receive a £1,000 fee and – if needed – Chapter can offer free access to one of their studio spaces in Cardiff for up to one month between March and August 2021.

The decision-making panel will include a varied demographic of lived experiences including Chapter programme staff and independent practitioners and curators

Artist Jonny Cotsen, who performed at EXPERIMENTICA18 with Louder Is Not Always Clearer, is to join the selection panel.

Produced and directed by Mr and Mrs Clark, Louder Is Not Always Clearer has since gone on to tour across the UK and Europe including a hugely successful run at 2019’s Edinburgh Fringe and most recently at Théâtre de la Ville, Paris.

The festival commissions and hosts a dynamic programme of live art, performance and interdisciplinary projects and offers a platform for UK and international artists at all stages in their careers, to present experimental work in an open and supportive environment.

The 2021 festival will explore narratives and alternatives to the status quo; questioning accepted ways of thinking; giving a voice to the underrepresented and challenging existing forms of storytelling – exploring democracy, agency and open authorship.

Chapter will advertise a call-out for proposals for this in March.

Deadline for applications is February 1.
