Participating in Spoffin OFF 2018? Professional, up-coming artists and those who want to show new work can now apply!
Spoffin OFF is the showcase part of the Spoffin Festival in Amersfoort (NL), an annual street arts festival with innovative outdoor and site-specific performances of professional artists from all over Europe, in 2018 to be held from August 23th through August 26th. Artists can apply to participate in the OFF program from January until February 28. Deadlines are strict!
Only a limited number of 15 to 20 artists/groups can perform in the Spoffin OFF program. A committee consisting of four festival programmers under supervision of artistic director Alfred Konijnenbelt will thoroughly study all the applications and make the selection. The first selection in March will be mainly based upon artistic criteria: originality, expressiveness, professionalism and whether the work interacts with public space and the audience. Other criteria on our website.
Spoffin offers artists venues on squares, streets and in parks and some specific sites in the mediaeval city centre of Amersfoort. Publicity, hotel, meals, plenty opportunities to meet professionals, reasonable compensation for travel costs and all the money raised ‘on the hat’ by our volunteers are also part of the deal.
All the information on participating in the OFF program is to be found on our website.
