Call for artists - In My Town - Wake up screaming #10



The next edition of Wake up screaming will continue the outward orientation set by #9, but this month we will venture into the Towns. The U.K. is unique in that it is a densely populated area with clustered towns and cities packed into a relatively small space, but this doesn't stop each town being really unique, with its own livelihood and special characters and creative populations. 

We are asking:

We are inviting people from all over the world to tell us what creative things are happening in your town? What kind of art and music can be found on the streets of your town or neighbourhood? What special gatherings, lectures, seminars, mystical circles are hiding in your town? Do you run an event, art, music, poetry, dream circle, spiritual development group, or other? Is there a unique aspect of your town that you would like to bring to the attention of a wider audience? In addition, what does your town mean to you? Have you never left your town? Do you have an adopted town?

From a personal perspective, this edition is to do with becoming a more sociable being, to get to know some of the creative characters in my adopted town of Glastonbury, to network and learn what secrets are hiding in the little nooks, crannies, alleyways and courtyards. What artists hide among these walls, and what opportunities, potential and magic lies unearthed. 

We are looking for:

The pages of edition #10 will be open to submissions from artists in all forms. We are looking primarily for observations and inspirations from your town, as explained above.  Perhaps send us some images and text (500-600 words) explaining what is happening in your town and why it's important.

We are accepting visual pieces, illustration, painting, drawings, animation, music, sound, photography, video, multimedia, films, installations, movement, dance, noise, soundscapes, songs, collaboration, creative writing, poetry and short articles < 600 words.

Or any combination of the above.

- Note: This is not just an opportunity to plug your events, although we would love to know about them. Sadly we are not accepting press releases or one-off events, we want insightful articles about interesting things and regular gatherings happening in your town -

New work, old work, published or not we are an open space designed for artists to respond honestly to interesting themes. Please view our submission guidelines and previous editions before submitting your work.
