Dear Curators of Crumb,

I hope the Autumn has started well for you.

I know that Crumb is not a place for 
announcements, but I hope you do not object to me 
briefly drawing your attention to the first 
announcement for AV Festival 08 in the North East 
of England, below.

We are delighted to be working with Crumb on 
aspects of the festival this time (which we will 
be able to tell you more about in the coming 
months) so I felt it pertinent to let you in on 
our sneak preview announcement below .

As some of you know, the AV Festival is a 
biennial international festival of electronic 
arts, featuring visual art, music and moving 
image. The next festival will take place in 
February and March 2008, and will examine the 
changing face of broadcasting in the light of the 
increasing move towards digitisation across 
Europe and beyond.  I know many of you have 
written about this issue close to the theme in 
the past, at various times, and I'd be very 
interested to know what your thoughts on this 
topic are.

With that in mind, I wanted to draw your 
attention to our first call for proposals, which 
is outlined below.  The first call is for a new 
sound-based commission (fee UKú5000) 
<http://www.avfestival.co.uk/opportunities>.

Very soon we'll also be calling for artists to 
help us create radio stations across the North 
East region and to work on several other 
commissions.  We'll also be calling for papers 
for our conference, and we'll be coming back to 
you then to ask you for your ideas then.

But in the meantime, I hope this is of interest 
to some of you and that you'll consider 
responding to either this call, or our subsequent 
ones.

Sincere apologies for cross-posting!

Very best wishes

Honor Harger
Director,
AV Festival

AV FESTIVAL 08 - FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT


SNEAK PREVIEW & CALL FOR PROPOSALS

AV Festival 08
http://www.avfestival.co.uk/
Newcastle, Gateshead, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, UK

First deadline for proposals: 15 October 2007
http://www.avfestival.co.uk/opportunities

AV Festival is an international festival of 
electronic arts, featuring visual art, music and 
moving image. A biennial event, the festival 
takes place in Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland 
and Middlesbrough in the North East of England. 
The next AV Festival will be held 28 February - 8 
March 2008.

The theme of AV Festival 08 is Broadcast.

This October, the BBC begin to switch off 
analogue television signals in the UK, paving the 
way for television to become entirely digital. At 
the same time as this profound change in our 
experience of broadcasting takes place, the 
internet and mobile networks have created 
opportunities for us to 'broadcast ourselves' in 
entirely new ways. As the landscape of 
broadcasting changes irrevocably, AV Festival 08 
will be a catalyst for debate about the future of 
broadcasting, and an event to celebrate a century 
of on-air and online transmission.

AV Festival 08 will include internationally 
renowned artists, filmmakers, researchers and 
musicians as well as emerging practitioners. It 
will feature:
- New commissions of art, music and moving image
- Open Air: an outdoor programme of events
- Concerts & Performances
- Exhibitions in galleries and museums
- A moving image programme
- FM Radio Stations
- Club events and parties
- An industry debate
- Seminars, conferences and talks
- Workshops

We will be making a full announcement about the 
festival theme and some aspects of the programme 
mid October.


___AV Festival 08: getting involved

AV Festival 08 is providing creative 
practitioners with an opportunity to contribute 
ideas to the programme. In the next two months, 
we will announce a series of opportunities for 
artists, musicians, filmmakers, DJs, VJs, 
designers, theorists, technologists, scientists, 
philosophers and others to contribute to the 
festival.

The first of these opportunities is a call for 
proposals for a site-specific audio art 
commission at the Sunderland Museum & Winter 
Gardens. The fee is GBP5000. If you have an idea 
for a new work which responds to our theme and 
the context of the Winter Gardens, we would like 
to hear about it. See below for more details.

In the coming weeks, we will also call for 
proposals from artists and producers who want to 
get involved with our radio stations, filmmakers 
who want to create a new work for the festival, 
and critics and philosophers who want to 
contribute to our conferences.


___AV Festival 08: call for proposals

AV Festival will commission new work especially 
for the festival, as well as present creative 
work which has already been produced.

We are now calling for proposals from artists or 
musicians for a new site-specific audio artwork 
for the Sunderland Winter Gardens. Experienced 
artists are invited to submit original ideas for 
a work that responds to both the festival's theme 
and the unique environment of the Winter Gardens.

The fee for this commission is GBP 5000.

Artists wishing to submit a proposal must 
download the brief for this commission from the 
AV Festival website, read the guidelines and send 
a proposal by email.

DEADLINE: 15 October 2007
