CALL FOR COLLABORATORS: BASK BY MACKENZIE BEDFORD
Deadline: May 24, 2022
Rate: $250-$375 (scope of work dependent on number of illustrators selected)
Timeline of Work: May 28-June 10, 2022 with some feedback requested June 11-24 on final assembly.
Found Festival and Mackenzie Bedford (the Projection Artist) are seeking submissions from queer, trans, non-binary, and two-spirit illustrators to contribute elements to a Pride-themed projection installation as part of Found Festival July 7-10, 2022.
Selected artists will be tasked with contributing elements, backgrounds, or textures to be animated by Mackenzie Bedford as part of a durational projection piece at the Found Grounds, home of the Found Festival Music Series.
SCOPE OF WORK
Selected artists will collaborate with the Projection Artist to identify a number of elements to illustrate based on the artist’s interests, capacity, and fee provided. Requested elements may include a small number of new figures, backgrounds, or textures OR the use of elements the artist has already created. Designs must be editable as layers (i.e. elements must be able to move/separate from backgrounds).
Artists will be asked to submit elements by June 10, 2022. Artists will be asked to provide input on animations for the final installation, but the final uses will be at the sole discretion of the Projection Artist.
The elements will be incorporated into an interactive projection display at Found Festival July 7-10, 2022.
Selected artists will receive a fee of $250-$375 based on the number of participating artists. The scope of work assigned will be based on the fees available. Artists will receive public recognition through credits available alongside the piece, on the Found Festival website, and through the Common Ground Arts Society social media channels.
Selected artists will also receive a Found Festival artist pass to access all Festival programming, a Festival t-shirt, and invitations to artist events as part of the Festival.
Send an email with samples of your work (this can be a link to your website, your Instagram handle, or attached files) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm MST on May 24, 2022. At this time, we are only accepting submissions from Edmonton and surrounding municipalities who self-identify as queer, trans, non-binary, or two-spirit. Artists are encouraged, but not required, to self-identify in their submissions.
All artists will be contacted no later than May 27, 2022 with follow-up details. Submissions will be reviewed by the Projection Artist along with the Found Festival Director (Whittyn Jason) and Festival Manager (Mac Brock).
