The Northwich Business Improvement District (BID) is still on the lookout for artists and creatives to perform at the town’s Festival of Arts in 2019.
Set to be delivered in July this year, the event aims to showcase the cultural and artistic talent that exists in the town and surrounding areas and will build upon the success of 2018’s festival.
The deadline for expressions of interest is midnight on Friday 25th January so potential applicants now have just over two weeks to apply and let the BID know what they plan to deliver.
Northwich BID Manager Jane Hough has outlined the kind of activities they’re looking for people or groups to showcase throughout the festival.
“Activities at the festival can take place both indoor and outdoor and we’re looking for things that will wow and entertain the people of Northwich.
“We welcome performances from a range of disciplines including theatre, music, dance, film, digital arts, visual arts, pavement art, graffiti art, cartoonists and tattoo art among many others. Practitioners will need to co-ordinate their activities within the town centre.”
For the event, the BID will once again be working with a number of partners including Northwich Art Shop, Visual Arts Cheshire (VAC), town centre businesses, Barons Quay and Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The festival will also comprise other events throughout the month of July such as the VAC Art Trail and the Northwich River Festival, while organisers will work closely with music venues, bars and cafes to create bespoke workshops and events.
To express an interest to deliver activity at the Northwich Festival of Arts 2019, individuals or groups will need to complete a short proposal which includes details about their organisation, what they will be delivering, the audience the activity is aimed at and the preferred location for delivery, amongst other things.
