Held within the frame of Mintfest, XTRAX Shorts is a pitch session for up to fifteen artists/companies to present new outdoor projects to an audience of international presenters and promoters, taking place on 1 & 2 September 2012.
To apply for a slot artists/companies need to be ready to present an idea for an outdoor project that will be available to tour in 2013 or 2014 (proposals can be submitted for shows that have been performed previously so long as they haven't toured widely in the UK or appeared at a previous Mintfest). Presentations can last up to 10 minutes, must be delivered in English, and must be supported by visual aids (photos, drawings, film). Presentations will be filmed and posted on the XTRAX website after the event.
Those invited to present their work will receive: one night's accommodation, breakfast included, for one person on 31 August or 1 September; and a fee towards travel expenses of £50 (UK-based) or £100 (international). For more information and to apply for a presentation slot see the XTRAX website. Deadline is 26 July 2012 at 5pm.
