call for Creative Practitioners, North Tyneside Council
United Kingdom – North East England

Contact: Kevin Wallace:

North Tyneside Council Arts Development Service are inviting expressions of interest from creative practitioners for ‘Shimmer’ – a site specific event held over fireworks weekend in November at Whitley Bay seafront. Whilst the programme is predominantly video, lighting and digital projections and installations, it has included outdoor performance elements appropriate to the brief and applications are welcomed from a range of artforms.

Shimmer is now in its third year and has quickly established itself as a fixture in the cultural calendar with a reputation for being innovative and accessible. The challenge is to develop the event for 2013 and whilst the core programme is expected to be similar in scale to previous years, more ambitious proposals of larger scale and budget are encouraged for consideration.
