Postcard - Branding (2).png

Digital ShortWorks is a NewWorks festival where video performances from artists across all disciplines related to the theme Postcards will be presented online in spring 2023. 

 

Postcards- to/from.
We are asking artists to send a snippet. A snippet of art. A snippet of you. A snippet of a perspective. To- you, me, us, here, there, tomorrow, yesterday. From- you, me, a time, a place, a feeling, a meal.

Pieces can range from 2-5 minutes, and be any art form, at any stage of development. Pieces can be composed of: reading of a new script, exploration in text, exploration in movement, in dance, exploration in music, in puppetry, poetry reading, workshopping ideas, snippets of a larger work, etc.

We highly encourage artists of all ages, backgrounds and disciplines to submit.

 

PAYMENT

Each artist involved and outlined in the pitch will be given a $250 fee. These fees will be delivered once the final video projects are received.

 

For example: Jill will be presenting 5 minutes of a new script they wrote, and will have Jack and Jess read. Jill, Jack and Jess will each be receiving $250 for their work totaling $750.
