Nieuwstraat Festival


The Nieuwstraat is an average street in the city center of Dordrecht, the Netherlands.
The festival will take place on Saturday 20 June 2020, between sunrise and midnight. A varied program will be compiled of all entries. The performances will be carried out by volunteers, unannounced and with no explanation.
Taking place in everyday settings, the performances involve hiding the unusual within the usual. Passersby will perceive the actions, but might not recognize them as performance art.

The Open Call:
Please describe your concept in a clear and accessible language, more or less as a manual. The performances will be carried out by (often unexperienced) volunteers.
Don’t forget to mention the preferred time of the day (in relation to the opening and closing of shops, outdoor cafes, the fruit/vegetable-market).
We will only accept your submission if you include links to a website or page with some information about your practice.

Please send your submission to mail@unnoticedart.com.
Deadline: Monday, 1 June 2020, 23:59 (CET).
