Each year PICA aims to present a series of contemporary arts projects that create career-defining moments for artists, life changing experiences for audiences of all ages and critical turning points in the advancement of art forms. In doing so, PICA focuses its resources on projects that make the most difference and will make a significant impact for artists and audiences.
For its 2017 program PICA is calling for proposals from artists for its remodelled performance program, a new program during Fringe World Festival and studio residency program. PICA is also opening up visual art profile submissions.
PICA is looking to work with artists who are:
- committed to contemporary arts practices that push the boundaries of their genre
- conceptually, formally or technologically rigourous
- connect with audiences in new and ambitious ways
- contribute to current cultural or artform development
PICA’s program seeks to support artists strategically through various stages of their career, from emerging to mid-career and established, and has a focus on connecting with a spectrum of local, national and international practices. PICA aims to be inclusive of different artistic ideas, forms and contexts and a diversity of artists and audiences.
Artistic proposals are due midnight WST, Monday 8 August, 2016.
PICA will notify applicants on the status of their proposal by Wednesday 24 August, 2016.
