Mayworks Halifax seeks proposals that will speak of the working class experience. This can be extremely varied and can be contemporary or historical. Both amateur and professional performers may apply.
Submissions need not be directly focused on work, labour or unions. Mayworks Halifax programs works of art that adress broad themes of social and environmental justice. Any submissions that adress issues of inequality and injustice, or give voice to marginalized communities will be considered.
Under-represented groups and those disadvantaged at work and in society are particularly encouraged to apply. Material is particularly sought from youth, women, people with disabilities, African Nova Scotians, First Nation Communities, urban aboriginal artists, newcomer (immigrant) populations, LGBTQ+, Acadian or under-represented cultures in Nova Scotia.
Proposals must be submitted in English or French.
DEADLINE: October 1st, 2016
