Open call for proposals: GoetheOnMain 2015
Non-commercial, artist-run project space / project ideas for exhibitions, workshops, events and performances can be handed in until 15 August 2014.
The Goethe-Institut is known worldwide for promoting intercultural engagement through fostering dialogue and exchange in the arts. GoetheonMain was developed by the Goethe-Institut South Africa and launched in May 2009 at Arts on Main in Johannesburg as a non-commercial, artist-run project space – an exceptional free platform in a city where cultural spaces are either commercially or governmentally managed. The multi-disciplinary GoetheonMain has since hosted a wide range of exhibitions, workshops, events and performances; including visual art, literature, film, music, dance and theatre projects

Infecting The City - Call for submissions 2015
The Africa Centre is calling for proposals for Infecting The City Public Arts Festival that will be held from the 9th – 14th March 2015.
Infecting The City unfolds on the streets and various other public spaces in the Central Business District of Cape Town. The Festival provides an unusual opportunity for art, music, dance and performance to leave the confines of theatres and galleries to engage with or disrupt Cape Town’s daily activities. The Festival's programme challenges audiences, pushes boundaries, shifts perspectives and helps to make sense of the public spaces we occupy.
After its most successful year in 2014 with 54 productions, 440 participating artists, and 32,000 audience members, this call is for works from two categories: New Works and Restaged Works. Visual, performing artists and practitioners from other disciplines are invited to submit. The work can be a full ensemble piece, intervention, live performance, installation, video, totally interactive or some other form newly imagined. All works should translate to or work within a public environment, and actively engage intentional and incidental audiences alike.

For more details about the call, time frames and process http://www.infectingthecity.com/2014/cape-town/call-for-applications-2015/

The deadline for this submission is the 15th August 2014 at 17h00. The short list will be released in mid-September 2014.
