Arts Prize 2013 Info

Newquay Arts Festival and Newquay Art Prize are entering their second year -    celebrating & showcasing creative and artistic activity.  8 days of a range of activities & events across the town that raise the level of engagement with arts and culture.

The Art8 Prize will provide up to 3 awards of £500 each, to include all expenses. It is a central part of the Festival enabling us to support the work of artists/performers and to bring new artistic work to the Town.

We are seeking proposals for work from any artist from any art discipline, eg dance, theatre, visual art, music, digital, film, written and spoken word – regardless of age, education or location

Our interest is wide and we want to be excited! We are interested in work that may inspire, challenge, make us laugh, make us think, make us cry or maybe ask WHY?

We are interested in a range of work across the 3 awards and our decision will be made with the overall breadth of work in mind as well as the individual pieces

The Prize, is intended to add to the breadth of the Festival, aid the future of the Festival with a legacy of engaging with contemporary creative work, encourage new visitors to the town – particularly from across Cornwall and contribute to a more positive image for Newquay.
