Watch Out Worcester (WOW) - a Free Event for the City from Dancefest

Watch Out Worcester (WOW)   

Saturday 22 July

A new free arts event for the city

Involving quirky, contemporary, fun, theatre, dance, music, spoken word and visual arts, WOW, a free event, takes place from noon on Saturday 22 July in outdoor and unusual spaces around the city centre.

We want to involve local performers and artists whose work is creative and original and would welcome applications to take part. For more information follow the link to web page dancefest.co.uk/watch-out-worcester

Take Part

We’re interested to hear about your work and how you see it fitting into Watch Out Worcester.  We can’t pay people to take part, but it is an opportunity to promote your work.

Performances can be walkabout or static, up to 20 minutes long and able to be performed 2-3 times between 12 noon and 4.30pm. They should be self contained as there is no power supply or staging.

We are also keen to hear from visual artists who could show work either in or out of doors – please bear in mind that we can’t be responsible for the security of that work. It would need to be set up and dismantled on the day.

How to Apply

Applications are welcome from professional, excellent community or youth groups (performers should be over 14).

Please send an email describing your work, together with a link to a film of performance, or images of visual arts, to Rose Beeston, Dancefest's Director, at rose@dancefest.co.uk  please include your contact details. This should be received at the very latest by Friday 26 May.


Email or ring Rose on 01905 611199 if you'd like further information or to chat through ideas.
