Hazard MMX - Call for Proposals

To date Hazard has produced two micro-festivals of sited performance and intervention - over 40 artists have taken to the streets of Manchester including:
Action Hero, Accidental Collective, Angel Club North, Caution Horses, Richard DeDomenici, Doldrum Theatre, The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent in the Home, Michael Pinchbeck, Shahram Entekhabi and the vacuum cleaner.

Hazard is now open for proposals of work for a daytime event (12-5pm) in Manchester City Centre:
* work that intervenes in public spaces in the city centre,
* work that is socially engaged, and/or conceptually motivated,
* work that is low or no-tech and self-sufficient
* we will give bonus points for creative engagement with the idea of hazard - chance, danger, risk, and/or use of yellow and black tape!

In addition to the general call for proposals of work, there are also a number of specific opportunities:
* One small commission/budget for a ‘launch’ event embodying the notion of Hazard and that focuses on and draws attention to the event.
* Ideas for flashmobs or mass gaming interventions.
* Public Screens - this year we would like explore use of the BBC Big Screen on Exchange Square for a series of short pieces, pre-recorded on mini-dv. This is not a call for high-tech video productions but to think creatively about the performative use of screens - either as a stand-alone or in conjunction with a live intervention. (nb - we will consider use of live camera but this may not be possible with the existing screen technology)

Honorarium/expenses (£2-300 per piece) available. To be negotiated on an individual basis. Please include outline budget with your proposal.
