Deadline: 22 September 2016 at 12:00

• An artist at the start of their creative career based in Scotland?

• Create high quality innovative work with original music or sound-based elements that cross artistic boundaries?
• Create remarkable moments that engage audiences?

• Presents work that inspires, invigorates and excites;
• Crosses creative boundaries with live music, visual and sonic art, film and new media;
• Dynamically engages audiences beyond traditional art forms with a Cryptic edge;
• Supports emerging artists’ artistic development and enables them to take risks;
• Gives audiences the opportunity to see inspiring and engaging work they would not usually have an opportunity to experience.

This is an opportunity to develop an existing work and present it for a second outing with Cryptic’s help and support.

Whilst Cryptic Nights is mainly based in CCA, Glasgow, we are also interested in innovative site-specific works, as well as projects that can be performed in a black box or gallery space.

We will not support:
• Traditional theatre, dance or literature;
• The creation of a new work;
• Work which has already been given substantial support/platform by another organisation.

• A guaranteed fee of £500 per performance with support, advice and space to take risks;
• A performance platform for your work supported by an experienced, international arts company;
• Venue, technical, PR and marketing support;
• An opportunity to build a new audience and raise your profile;
• Free entry to other Cryptic Nights throughout the year;
• Valuable networking opportunities.
