Call for Applicants!

Posted on 21 December 2016

We’re excited to share the developments of our Springboard Companies. This post is written by Jen Davis, Co-Founder/Producer of Shoot Festival, who is sharing what the team have in store!

Christmas is coming, which means one thing for the Shoot Festival team; applications are on the horizon. 2017 will mark our third festival and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever!

We’re back on the lookout for the best of Coventry and Warwickshire’s emerging talent to perform in our Performance Programme at the Shop Front Theatre on Saturday 18th March. We’re also delighted to announce the addition of the Shoot Festival Sound Stage in Shelton Square. In partnership with the Tin Music and Arts, we’re on a mission to find Coventry’s most talented musicians.

Shoot is exclusively committed to work being developed in the CV area, so this is an excellent opportunity for early career performers and musicians to showcase work, build connections and get paid. We accept applications from any live art form; the only requirement is that you must live or work in the CV postcode. Each artist/company will receive a £100 fee. We also have two Artist Development Awards of £500 on offer, which will be decided by a small panel of professional artists based in the area.

Applications for our Performance Programme and Sound Stage open Wednesday 4th January 2017 and close on Friday 3rd February at 5pm. For an application form and brief, head to our website.

So after the Queen’s done her speech and you’ve eaten an entire selection box why not check out our brand new website and find out how you could be part of Coventry’s most exciting new art festival?
