• Create and film a dance at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre, in response to artworks in the current exhibitions. Deadline: 11 July 2020.

The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery / Len Lye Centre launches the next phase of its Art of Dance project, with an open call for dance performances to be created and filmed within the Gallery spaces, inspired by the current exhibitions.

How to Enter:

This next project phase, like the initial launch, is open to all ages and dancing abilities.

Anyone who loves to dance or feels inspired to create and share a performance in response to our current exhibitions, can apply to take part.

Entrants have creative freedom to choose which part of the current exhibitions to respond to, as well as the style or genre of dance/movement and music to perform to (please read the guidelines and terms and conditions outlined further below).

The gallery would love to see entrants film their dance in the Gallery. All you need to do is register your interest in advance by email.

If that isn't possible, you can still take part; entrants are welcome to film their dance elsewhere, whether at home or another public or private space. Please abide by the terms & conditions and submission guidelines set out below.
