Up the Wall

Chester Performs is now calling for proposals for sited works for this yearís Up the Wall, an evening festival of live art, intervention, installation and new media works.

Taking place for the first time around Chesterís Castle, we are looking for artists to take part by contributing work to the event, either through contextually relevant existing work or newly created site specific performances and installations. We are particularly interested in works which seek to explore our relationship with borders and identity, of how psychogeography, ancient and modern, affects the places in which we live and the cultures with which we associate.

Taking the castle as site and starting point we welcome proposals for performance and live art, mapping (GPS and architectural) and signaling projects, tours and walks, projection and installation.

An integral part of Up the Wall is to provide a background for the regionís installation, visual, live and new media artists. It is suitable for established and emerging professional artists. We would very much like to encourage artists to work across art forms and provide a platform for collaborative work.
