Open Call for Artists – Wordpool Family Day 2019
Wordpool is Blackpool Council’s Arts and Library Services established programme of festivals celebrating literature, writers and words in all their many wonderful forms. The Wordpool Family Day is a highly successful annual date in the calendar at the beginning of July where up to 4000 local families enjoy arts activities, performances and storytelling across different locations in Stanley Park.
This year’s theme is OUT OF THIS WORLD based around the 50th anniversary of the landing on the Moon and the theme of the Libraries national Summer Reading Challenge. From Aliens and Dr Who, to Astronomy and myths of the Stars – the universe is ours to explore for the day.
We are currently programming artists, storytellers and performers to provide two different activities for this very popular event in Stanley Park on Saturday 6 July, 2019 12- 4pm.
We have two opportunities for artists, designers, creative organisations, storytellers or performers to deliver interactive installations, practical workshops or immersive performances.
Please see the Artist Brief for more information.
Closing Date: 12:00 pm 3rd May 2019
