We are seeking performers (of ALL kinds -- dancers, bands/musicians, actors, circus/performance artists, and others) to entertain and delight our guests at Xpand Fest on June 8, 2019 from 12pm-10pm!
Xpand Fest is a community-driven outdoor street festival with music, arts and fun in the South Slope of Asheville, NC. Xpand Fest is the signature event of Xpand an arts organizing corporation. We believe in strengthening our community to empower ourselves, other cities, and beyond.
One of the ways we will galvanize our festival attendees is through creatively presenting sustainable development goals (website for info below). These goals are designed for people and communities to come together to solve some of the most challenging problems facing our own town and the world today. Through using this global medium locally, we provide a platform for individuals, businesses, makers, nonprofits and the creative sector of Asheville to come together to actualize the changes we must make.
So, this is a chance for you to think outside the box and use your performance art to make a difference!
NEED TO KNOWS: - Performances will not exceed more than 60 minutes - Acts are not required to address sustainable development but performers who align with our ideals and will receive preference. - PERFORMERS WILL BE PAID! We do not ask that creative talent give anything away because we believe your art is what inspires this world to be better. Keep in mind we are a startup nonprofit and arts business and our budget isn't expansive - but we will ALWAYS respect your work. - We really do mean ALL performance styles are welcome to enter. We cannot guarantee that your nude "life under water" act will go over well with our crowd, or that putting up a 50ft rig for your 5 minute performance on renewable energy is within our financial means.... BUT don't be afraid to ask!
So if you are interested in sharing your talent with Asheville in a way that encourages healthy community growth, then please fill out the form below and a member from the Xpand Fest team will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
