MUTEK 2017 send out call for proposals

It's that time again. Mutek call for artists from Quebec and Canada to submit their project proposals

MUTEK 2017 has officially launched their call for project proposals for the festival’s 18th edition, which takes place in Montreal from 23–27 August, 2017. Artists from Quebec and Canada are invited to submit their bids. “As our next edition falls during the 150th Anniversary of Canada, we are also placing special emphasis on artists from Toronto and Vancouver,” says the festival brief. “The kinds of work we're especially interested in are: live, predominantly electronic music performances; live audiovisual performances featuring innovative use of digital imagery and sound where the audio and visual are considered a singular entity; multimedia projects involving interactive urban installations and architectural mapping creations; interactive and audiovisual installations that could be imagined existing in social space or as encounters on sites and in venues occupied by the festival; any projects that push boundaries and challenge conventions in the digital creation sphere.” Deadline for submissions is 15 December 2016.
