Now Hear This Festival 2019

Call For Proposals

New Music Edmonton is proud to announce that its eighth annual Now Hear This Festival of New Music will be taking place March 20 – 24, 2019. The festival will include a wide array of concerts, talks, and other events, and promises to be an exciting weekend. We already have a mind-blowing array of artists scheduled, and are seeking your participation!

We are now accepting proposals from Edmonton-area artists to perform on three shared bills taking place during the festival. Rather than set categories, we want you to tell us what you want to do!

In past years we have had an incredible range of performances, including short solo performances (composed or improvised), chamber ensembles, live electronic works, and mixed-discipline works involving sound installation, dance, theatre, visual arts, and poetry.

Please note that submission of works does not guarantee inclusion in the festival. Accepted performers will be compensated with a performance fee.

Submissions can be made here.

Proposals deadline: November 15, 2018
