CALL FOR ARTISTS: WONDERMENT 2021
Wonderment’s 6th edition will take place over the BC Day long weekend, July 30 to August 2, 2021. Our curatorial team is seeking artists working in the fields of live electronic / electro-acoustic music performance, video art, and media art. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the performance or work you’d like to present, your artist CV, and links to your portfolio (for musicians, links to video of live performance is preferred). Due to the pandemic, we will be contracting artists in phases as our programming format(s) develop in response to Provincial Health Office orders with respect to events. This call for artists will remain open until April 2021, or as our budget allows, but we recommend getting in touch with us earlier in the year. Proposals for creative videos of live performances welcomed, as online programming is being planned regardless of whether in-person indoor evening events are permitted this year. Thanks for your interest!
Wonderment celebrated its 5th edition in 2020, taking place over the BC Day long weekend (July 31 to August 3). Due to the pandemic, most programming took place as online content, with three outdoor in-person events featuring a sound art installation by George Rahi and live performances by Adham Shaikh and PIQSIQ. Links to video of all Wonderment 2020 live performances may be found on the GCEMS YouTube channel.
Wonderment is supported by the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia, the BC Arts Council, Capital Regional District, and the City of Victoria, with assistance from Long & McQuade, MODO Car Co-Op, Sunbelt Rentals and Metropol Industries.
