OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS
Making Space Art Event is an experimental art project which networks local artists and creative’s. We have created a platform for contemporary visual art in Athlone. We create a dynamic experience of contemporary art within the specific cultural context of Athlone that resonates locally. By taking art out of the gallery setting and into public places, we promote inclusion and participation in contemporary visual art. This event creates dialogue between contemporary visual artists, the public and other discipline’s as well as forming local artistic networks.
The event will take place on Saturday 28th from 11am & Sunday 29th May till 6pm 2011 in the Civic Square.
The Civic Square is a large, open, public space, over looked by the Civic Building (Town Council Head Quarters). We are looking for creative ideas of how to use the space or what could be presented here. We are looking for proposals of new or existing artworks/projects/concepts & applications for this event.
