CALL OUT: FESTIVAL 2020

OPPORTUNITIES TO BE A PART OF THE SALISBURY INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL 2020

The 2020 Salisbury International Arts Festival will celebrate the beauty, the courage and the joy of human movement. We will draw inspiration from extraordinary journeys both large and small and from journeys that succeeded against all odds. Our programme will explore how movement has been represented in different art forms and will seek to capture the boundless potential of the human body. Our Festival will also inspire people to become more active, to dance and to play in the streets and spaces of our beautiful city, and be part of the wider Salisbury 2020 celebrations.

PARTICIPATING OPPORTUNITY: COMMUNITY CHORUS MEMBER

Next year, as we celebrate 800 years since the founding of the City, Wiltshire Creative will once again be working in association with La Folia to perform a new choral work by Howard Moody Stone Songs. The piece is inspired by the craftsmen who built the Cathedral with their bare hands.

The piece will be performed in Salisbury Cathedral on the opening night of the Festival, Friday 22 May, under the musical direction of Howard Moody.

Following the success of Earthrise in 2019, Wiltshire Creative are thrilled to continue the work with The Festival Chorus and we are delighted that this event will herald the start of two packed weeks of music, dance, circus, film, theatre, visual art, spoken word and much, much more. Stone Songs promises to be an extraordinary event.

STEAM PROJECT: DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY, SCIENCE AND ART DEPARTMENTS

We are announcing an opportunity for Design and Technology, Science and Art departments. This is a chance to work across different media and create new work for submission to an exhibition of young people’s work, which will run during the Festival.

This project is intended to be a fun and inventive, supporting lesson delivery and enriching the curriculum.  It can be used in conjunction with events such as Science Week (British Science Week takes place between 6-15th March 2020).  

This is an open call for students to explore the world of automata and movement.  It is an invitation to students to stretch and challenge themselves: to be creative, ambitious and innovative.  This project seeks to encourage students to be inspired by a theme of movement and to produce something exciting whilst using art, science, design and technology.

We look forward to seeing a spectrum of ideas encompassing creative thinking and an artistic output. The results might include functional objects such as a household aid or prosthetic limb. It could be a robotic mechanism, a piece of a kinetic art, or even a moving toy.

Submissions may be in the form of 2 dimensional designs, digital programmes, scientific experiments and discoveries, video or fully constructed 3 dimensional pieces.
