Counterpoint Arts is inviting submissions from artists & organisations who'd like to take part in the Platforma Festival Fringe & Platforma Conference

Platforma Festival 2013 – Call for Proposals

The second Platforma Festival of arts and refugees takes place in Manchester from 31 Oct- 1 Nov 2013. There’ll be a two-day Conference at the Martin Harris Centre, University of Manchester and a series of performances, concerts and exhibits. The Festival is being organised in partnership with Community Arts North West, the Platforma Regional Hub in the North West.

Counterpoint Arts is interested in hearing from artists & organisations who’d like to take part in the Platforma Festival Fringe in Manchester from 26 October 2013. Fringe events or performances will need to be programmed, organised and financed by the organisation or artist themselves, but Platforma will promote them in the festival brochure, on the website and via social media.
