Call for Creative Proposals
Capital E National Arts Festival 2007
Proposals deadline: 15 December 2005.
Capital E National Arts Festival is New Zealand’s largest arts festival for children. This award-winning biennial festival is designed to present professional works to young audiences to inspire and entertain. It is managed by Capital E with support from Wellington Museums Trust and Wellington City Council.
Capital E is calling for proposals from professionals in theatre, dance, music, visual art and cross-genre forms for consideration as part of the programme in the next festival running March 12 – 25, 2007. It will include performances on stage, performance/workshop experiences, free public entertainment/cultural carnival days and a public art installation project. The audience is 3 – 12 year-olds and their families.
Youth and families are challenging audiences for artists and previous artists have found this experience very rewarding. We encourage professional artists to think outside the box and develop creative works for this unique audience. Works are entered into the Festival under different arrangement including commissions, purchases, or hire productions and projects.
If your ideas are challenging or whacky, don’t be put off. Take a look at the briefing papers available at or by contacting Howard Vickridge, Festival General Manager, Capital E, PO Box 3386, Wellington, New Zealand. Phone +64 4 9133 733, email .
Proposals received up to 15 December 2005.
