Liberty Festival 2011: Call for submissions

Posted on 29 July 2011

Liberty Festival, London’s disability arts festival, is a platform for amazing new work from deaf and disabled artists. This year the festival is hosted at London’s Southbank Centre on 3rd September.

Submissions of Disability Arts and Deaf Arts work, from 1950 to the present day, are invited for inclusion in a video piece to be screened as part of the 2011 Liberty Festival in the Clore Ballroom, Southbank Centre on 3rd September.

Caglar Kimyoncu and Simon McKeown’s composite video work will present a playful whistle-stop retrospective of Disability and Deaf Arts over the last sixty years and their contribution to London culture. Splicing together archive footage and imagery with contemporary material, it will refer back to the celebration of the 1951 Festival of Britain. You can submit your own work, or archive images or documentation of Disability Arts work and events from the past.

The work will be screened at various intervals throughout the 3rd September. Please note that the video piece will not include sound and will act as a backdrop for other events. Submitted works may be cropped or only excerpts included, and may be juxtaposed or overlaid with other images. All will be credited.

Moving image and still images are welcome. We will accept VHS, DVD, Mini DV, VCD. If you have moving image work in any other format, please contact us.
