OPEN CALL FOR PROJECTS
Production and dissemination support program for the series Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen
SUBMISSION DEADLINE : Octobre 15th, 2012
Agence TOPO, a Montreal-based artist-run centre for new media, launches a new call for projects for its series Sortir de l’écran / Spoken Screen. This program, initiated in 2007 with the NT2 Lab (University of Quebec in Montréal), presents (hyper)media works that incorporate a performative aspect and which explore the links between the screen and the off-screen space: poetry readings and interpretations, participative performances, interactive devices, etc.
For its coming editions, Agence TOPO will consider proposals of works comprising a narrative and performative dimension that fosters visual, audio and textual exploration, both in its physical and on-screen aspects.
The selected artists and projects will benefit from technical support for a period of 4 to 8 weeks within a residency program that can be spread out over time depending on the artists’ needs and specific project requirements. The planned release dates of the series are in spring and autumn 2013-2014.
In order to respect the foreseen deadlines, projects currently under development and those demonstrating a strong commitment from the artists will be given priority.
Artists interested in this theme, and by the production context offered by Agence TOPO are encouraged to submit their proposals before October 15th 2012.
