Calling emerging artists, performers and workshop leaders!

Be part of a new and exciting festival organised for and by 12 to 25s!

This January will see groups of Festival Makers across the South Kesteven district and surrounding areas, all aged between 12 and 25, begin to choose the events and activities that they want to see happen as part of LOV Festival in April. LOV Festival will be a four day cross art-form festival of theatre, music, film, art, design, craft, dance and comedy across Stamford Arts Centre and Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham.

LOV Festival wants to support new and emerging artists. Are you a solo musician or in a band? Are you a young theatre or dance company? Are you a filmmaker, a workshop leader, an artist or a photographer? Are you a young artist or maker?

We are looking for expressions of interest from artists and workshop leaders based in the East Midlands who would like to be considered by the young ‘Festival Makers’. We are looking for people who are passionate about working with young people and helping to develop their skills at a professional level and artists who can bring something new and exciting that the young people may not have experienced before.

Get in touch with us for more information and send your CV, pictures, facebook page and your youtube videos to Ellie Rudd; Eleanor.Rudd@leisureconnection.co.uk or post them on the LOV Festival Facebook www.facebook.com/LOVFestival. Deadline is the 16th January 2013.
