Greenwich+Docklands International Festival (GDIF) and Spoffin, two leading outdoor arts festivals in the UK and The Netherlands, are joining forces to present an online pitching session, featuring UK, Dutch and other international outdoor artists and companies. Open to festival programmers and arts professionals, this is an opportunity to hear about artists' plans for 2021 and beyond, inspiring us to embrace and look beyond the current challenges.

GDIF will present pitches from Artistic Director and Choreographer Jeanefer Jean-Charles (Black Victorians) which has also been supported by Without Walls’ Blueprint programme; Joseph Toonga (Born to Protest), commissioned by Stomping Ground; and Kaleider (Arch) a large-scale installation.

Spoffin will present 5 companies from the Roundabout Europe project, which supports emerging outdoor artists on an artistic and professional level, as well as pitches from Mobil & Casier, Arnhemse Meisjes, and Bram Graafland, with more to be announced.

How it will work

The pitching sessions will be moderated by Angus MacKechnie, executive director of OutdoorArtsUK, followed by informal networking with the artists in virtual breakout rooms. All sessions will be captioned and BSL interpreted. Furthermore, all presented projects will be supported by a downloadable dossier on the day.

Save the date: the GDIF & Spoffin PITCH session will take place on Friday, 28 August at 14:00-16:00 (BST), 15:00-17:00 (CEST), 16:00-18:00 (EEST).
