Brave New Words is The Stoves monthly spoken word and open mic night which runs on the last Friday of every month. On Friday, 30th of September we celebrate its first birthday.
To mark the occasion, The Stove is offering an exciting opportunity to Blueprint100 members, and emerging writers and performers aged under thirty. We are looking for an artist or collaboration to open up our September edition of Brave New Word with a short (5-10 minute long) art piece to start off the night’s proceedings. This could be a performance, short film, new piece of writing or music.
The piece should be “word” orientated but should involve at least one other element, and could include film, music, sound, projection or dance etc. Our theme for September’s Brave New Words is based around ideas of growth, development and formative moments – changing or inspirational times.
The Stove has limited tech facilities, including projectors and basic PA system but please get in touch if you have specific requirements to make sure you can meet those.
Budget including any materials and transport: £100
Deadline for expression of interest: Monday 5th September
We will get back to the selected artist/artists by Friday 9th September
The performance date is Friday, 30th September
To apply please send a short letter of interest, along with 2 supporting images (which could be previous works and/or inspiration/development sketches or plans) to email@example.com.
