You've made a new piece of work and you've found opportunities for the work to be presented in stages. Now you're ready to present it to a newer and larger audience. But how do you begin to start a conversation with a festival that could be suitable for your work? Some festivals conduct an open-call for pitches, while others don't. What catches the eye of a festival director?

The Producing Clinic is an opportunity for producers and artists with concepts and ideas for development to seek insight and advice from experienced producers and arts managers. Each clinic will involve an open call for applicants to submit their project proposals and/or existing project write-ups for consideration. according to the remit of the clinic and the featured facilitator.

In this edition of the Producing Clinic, we hear from Joe Sidek, the Artistic Director of the Rainforest Fringe Festival in Sarawak and the former Artistic Director of the Georgetown Festival in Penang. Joe will share about how festivals programme and commission work and developing pitches that can catch the eye of festival directors.

If you have a project that is ready to be submitted to festivals for consideration, do submit a pitch document and Joe will select up to 3 pitches to undergo the clinic with him at our next social in June!

Open Call: NAC Silver Arts 2019/2020

Silver Arts – Celebrating Seniors and the Arts

Silver Arts is a month-long festival showcasing the meaningful possibilities seniors have in and through the arts in everyday lives. It highlights the significance of arts engagement as people age, and opens conversations on creative ageing - how the arts foster creativity and social engagement towards enhancing the well-being of seniors and people around them, with imagination and shared experiences. The festival also demonstrates the role of the arts in forging a sense of identity, self-worth and belonging as individuals have access to choices, knowledge and connection to community across generations, cultural backgrounds, and abilities. The festival offers opportunities for seniors to share their stories that shape collective memories and forge stronger inter-generational understanding.

The National Arts Council is inviting proposals from artists and arts organisations to develop and present arts experiences that are senior-centric and support the notion of creative ageing. The proposals could take on a variety of artistic medium (e.g. literary art, performing arts, visual arts, photography and film) as well as modes of engagement ranging from innovative presentations to analogue/digital participatory projects that involve participants as co-creators. Proposals will be considered for Silver Arts 2019 (5-29 September) and 2020 (3-27 September).

Deadline: Friday, 1 March 2019, 11.59pm (Singapore time).

Please visit the Silver Arts website here for more details: https://artsforall.sg/initiatives/silver-arts.aspx
