CHANCE OPERATIONS GUIDELINES & INSTRUCTIONS

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: December 15, 2014

Individual artists are invited to apply to be part of an experimental and interdisciplinary approach to art-making at {Re}HAPPENING 2015 by creating projects in a spontaneous and collaborative way. Participating artists’ names are randomly selected to create teams; each team is presented with various elements, challenges and problems to solve. The result is a brand new indeterminate creative work that will premiere at {Re}HAPPENING 2015.

Artists of all disciplines and regions are encouraged to apply. Final artist teams will be announced in February at the artist kick-off party; date is to be announced.
