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.

- Community groups and employers opportunity to work on a large scale visual art project

We are seeking young singers aged 8 -18 to perform Cecilia McDowall’s Everyday Wonders: The Girl From Aleppo under the musical direction of Lynsey Docherty of Celebrate Voice.
Young people will rehearsal throughout April and May and perform on Sunday 24 May at Salisbury Cathedral as part of this year’s Salisbury International Arts Festival.
Everyday Wonders is a haunting cantata that tells the story of Nujeen Mustafa, a remarkable Kurdish teenager with cerebral palsy. It charts her incredible journey, pushed in her wheelchair by her elder sister, and against all the odds, from war-torn Syria across Europe to Germany.
Please sign up using the registration form.
We have an exciting opportunity for community groups, companies or organisations to get involved with the creation of a large scale piece of visual art which requires some pre-construction before then being built and displayed onsite during a day of free activity in Salisbury.
We are working with French artist Olivier Grossetete to reconstruct the original bell tower in Cathedral Close – out of cardboard boxes in this Monumental Construction.
This opportunity would be great for groups such as Scouts and Guides, cadets etc. as well as adult groups. Employers might be looking for a fun activity for their staff to do together. This opportunity will take place in the form of timetabled sessions where groups can book in to construct elements with the creative team ready for the final build together.
It will be all hands on deck for the final construction on site and we will be encouraging everyone involved in the pre-construction, those only available on the final day and passers-by to get involved.
The pre-construction sessions will take place w/b 18th May 2020 and the final construction taking place on Sunday 24th May 2020 in Salisbury.

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.
If you are interested in taking part please express your interest by contacting Becky Birkett-Mills on firstname.lastname@example.org by 14 February 2020.
You will need to submit a maximum of 5 pieces per class by 24 April 2020. The shortlisted pieces will be selected by a specialist panel and then displayed in Salisbury City Centre for the duration of Salisbury International Arts Festival
