CALL TO CREATIVES

DO YOU HAVE A GREAT IDEA FOR BEAMS 2014?

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS EXTENDED BY POPULAR DEMAND
MONDAY 28TH JULY
DON’T MISS OUT!

A call to creatives to submit proposals to the BEAMS Arts Festival 2014. If you’re a visual and performance artist, animator, artisan, architect, bespoke crafter, designer, production company, creative contemplator or creative agency, BEAMS wants you to share your creative brilliance!

On Saturday 20th September 2014 the BEAMS arts festival will once again illuminate Balfour St and 7 surrounding laneways for one magical night in Chippendale.

The BEAMS Arts Festival revitalises the creative community and re-imagines the possibilities for the city through collaborative imagination, uniting creative visionaries from all over the map to create a Utopia for one night.

Now in its 3rd year, BEAMS Festival offers an unforgettable visionary experience unlike any other, in which clusters of creatives engage the opus of their imaginations with the public.

Do you have a good idea? Let us know!

This year’s major theme is Utopia echoing the transformation of Chippendale into Sydney’s creative core and perfectly fitting for this year’s festival.
