One of the organisers from Oxheys Mill Studios – known as timsperspectiveart – said: “We are excited to have secured funding to allow us to offer a limited number of paid opportunities for artists, musicians and performers to be part of this year’s event.
“This is a rare opportunity in Preston, and we are looking forward to seeing how Preston’s creative community interpret the call and respond. We like creative thinking so all mediums will be considered.
“We have some of Preston’s best known creatives involved, and we expect many experienced practitioners to apply – but we also want to encourage those who have never been part of such an event before.
“We have a track record of pushing boundaries and allowing new talent opportunity to emerge, and it all helps to create a special and unique atmosphere on the day. So get your creative hats on.”
The open call deadline is Friday 21 February. For full details, visit the Oxheys Mill Studios website.
