THE BENDER CALL OUT

DEADLINE 8 AUGUST 2018

Returning as a one night only art party, THE BENDER has built a reputation as an immersive interdisciplinary feast featuring invited headline acts and local artists. A celebration of collaboration, THE BENDER is a time for experimentation, exploration & getting twisted. 

The open theme this year is an invitation to the creative ideas hidden in the recesses of your minds. What have you always wanted to see at The Lock Up? What experimental ideas have you wanted to try out? What do you want to create more of in our city? This is your opportunity to take over one of the many incredible spaces in The Lock Up and make it happen.

We are seeking applications from visual artists, musicians, performers, DJ’s, photographers, fashion designers, poets, filmmakers, animators, video & sounds artists; you name it, we want it! 

Or maybe you aren’t an ‘artist’ but you have a burning brilliant idea for the space. 

Your Project could be (but not limited to)

  • A collaborative work between artists of different disciplines
  • Site specific – take advantage of these unique spaces!
  • Interactive or responsive
  • Static or live
Collaborative and multi-disciplinary applications are encouraged. The creation of immersive environments is desirable. 

Works will be selected on their strength and cohesion within the show. Please submit your proposal by 5PM WEDNESDAY 8 AUGUST 2018. 

ALL DISCIPLINES – COLLABORATIONS WELCOMED –ANYTHING GOES!
