EAFS 2015 – Environmental Art Festival Scotland

This post comes to you from EcoArtScotland


The team behind the Environmental Art Festival Scotland (EAFS) have a call out for proposals for 2015 which they asked us to circulate.

The EAFS team is beginning the process of developing work for the 2015 festival. To do this we want to work collaboratively with creative people and communities of interest. EAFS 2015 will connect South West Scotland to national and international locations therefore we are particularly seeking proposals that involve some form of journey to the festival.

The Commissioned Artworks
The commissioned artworks might comprise a journey, an event, an installation, an art happening. They might involve structure, visual art, design, architecture, sound or performance or a combination of these disciplines. We are interested in work that involves making across different disciplines and technologies and ideas of sharing and potentially leaving something behind. The artwork should culminate in Dumfries and Galloway as part of EAFS 2015 (28 – 30 August).

Festival Themes
• Inventiveness, foolishness and generosity as a way of understanding the world;
• Food, clothes, shelter and environmental sustainability;
• Hospitality, hosting and community;
• Journeys, migrations, secular pilgrimage and transformation.
