We are looking for exciting, engaging contemporary artists! Consider this your invitation to the 2010 festival!

THE FESTIVAL
For ten years, Eastern Edge Gallery has organized an annual summer arts festival, the 24 Hour Art Marathon. The 24 Hour Art Marathon Festival celebrates all contemporary forms of artistic disciplines with a variety of activities: performance art, spoken word, video, contemporary music, artist talks, workshops, screenings, an outdoor soap-box stage as well as the marathon event; 24 hours of creative madness.

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
We include artists of all ages and experience, providing opportunities for younger artists to interact with more experienced artists and access a wide range of artistic expression. We're highly participatory with an eye to develop young artists and audiences while celebrating achievement in contemporary art. We complement Eastern Edge’s yearly programming by offering artistic diversity with a focus on community outreach and audience participation.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

                performances (site-specific or staged)
                local community collaboration (interactive works)
                video/sound/off-site installation
                workshops (for all ages or specific)

The festival committee will review all proposals and may contact artists for further information and planning. Eastern Edge is dedicated to paying artists professional fees.

ABOUT EASTERN EDGE
Eastern Edge Gallery, Newfoundland and Labrador’s first non-profit artist-run centre established in 1984. Overlooking the St. John’s harbour, Eastern Edge offers support, professional development, a sense of community, information and resource-sharing and a meaningful context for contemporary artistic activity. Membership is open to anyone who makes art or has an interest in art. Eastern Edge provides opportunities to contribute new art to our lives: new ideas, questions, awareness, sensibilities and responsibility. We operate through a board, committee and membership decision making process. We respond to community needs as well as initiate programming. Eastern Edge is committed to exhibiting contemporary Canadian and International art including visual, audio, interactive, performance, film and video, installation, and new media. The gallery presents 6-week long exhibitions throughout the year as well as a summer contemporary visual art festival, the 24 Hour Art Marathon, each August. The festival celebrates all contemporary forms of artistic disciplines with a variety of activities: performance art, spoken word, video, contemporary music, artist talks, workshops, screenings, an outdoor soapbox stage as well as the marathon event, 24 hours of creative madness.

The gallery encourages work from feminist, social and culturally diverse and inclusive perspectives and is dedicated to rigorous activity locally. The Rogue Gallery is a non-juried space specifically dedicated to exhibiting local artists’ work. The Pin-In Gallery is devoted to small one-inch button art. Most recently, Destination LIBRARY, a new collaboration between Eastern Edge and Visual Arts Newfoundland and Labrador (VANL-CARFAC) offers a comfortable space in which to peruse art periodicals, magazines, professional development guides and other publications.

The gallery is available to groups and individuals for performance and rehearsal space, film and video screenings, meetings, poetry readings and other events. Eastern Edge is a member of the ARCCC-CCCAA (The National Association of Artist Run Centres) and AARCA (The Atlantic Association of Artist Run Centres).
