UNFIX festival will return in June 2021, and we’re seeking artists of all art forms (paid!) to contribute to our programme. The call is open to both Scottish and International Artists. As a festival based in a rich northern country, we would love to hear from artists in the ‘Global South’: climate change and ecological crisis are hitting other places in worse ways and with greater speed than Scotland, and we’re painfully aware of this. We will also maintain our focus as a Scotland based festival dedicated to helping artists here think about how to connect their work to these biggest of themes.
We’re an arts festival based in Scotland, with partners in New York City, Tokyo and Bologna. We programme work concerned with ecological crisis, climate change, hyper-capitalism and all the things that might help to address them: love, care, imagination, joy and dissent.
Though everything has changed for humans in the last year, our desires and our approach are still the same: to find out through art who the Anthropocene is asking us to be, and to seek ways of connecting as if audiences and artists deserve more than distraction and entertainment.
