Ten Days on the Island

APPLY NOW! Opportunity for Tasmanian artists at the Ten Days on the Island Festival

Ten Days on the Island invites submissions from Tasmanian artists interested in participating in Intimate Epics, a series of site-responsive works in built-environment locations across Tasmania. As its name suggests, Intimate Epics explores epic themes in intimate settings. For Ten Days on the Island 2021, Intimate Epics projects will animate small-to-medium spaces - from hotel rooms, shopfronts, garages and ballrooms to pubs and alleyways in Tasmanian cities and towns.

 We seek expressions of interest (EOI) from experienced Tasmanian artists/creative teams to be included alongside other Australian and international works in an expanded Intimate Epics series within Ten Days on the Island 2021.

It is intended that selected projects will engage with Festival audiences around Tasmania through intriguing small-scale performance, installation, visual art, music, sound, video/digital events or other hybrid forms.

Artists/creative teams should submit an EOI, including a brief project description, using the online form below. Please take into consideration the fact that Ten Days on the Island is a pan-Tasmanian Festival. While submissions for projects in Hobart and Launceston are welcome, projects located in built environments/towns outside those city centres are encouraged. We welcome proposals for new works, re-imagined versions of extant works, or remounts of existing productions. Large-scale works cannot be considered in this program stream.

 This is not a funding application, so we don’t need a budget. Simply pitch us your idea by answering a few straightforward questions below. Proponents for shortlisted projects will be invited to meet with Ten Days on the Island to discuss their proposal in more detail. Selected artists/creative teams will have access to support from Ten Days to develop and present their artwork alongside other projects in the Festival 2021 program.

The scope and type of support offered will be tailored to each artist and project. Projects can be fixed in one location or touring, and proposals for unique locations across regional Tasmania are encouraged. If you don’t have a specific town or location in mind, that is fine. Simply share your idea with us and we can work together to find the right audience and location. If you have more than one project, you can submit multiple EOIs. Please keep your expression of interest to less than 1,000 words and include images, sketches, drawings, websites, videos or audio tracks – anything you believe will best communicate your idea.

Artists can submit an EOI by completing a simple online form, visit tendays.org.au 

Closing Date: 9am on Monday 9 September 2019.

Shortlisted applicants will be notified before the end of September.
