THEME: All SpareParts contributors must be art, performance and spectacle that is on, about or utilises transport and travel in creative ways.

This year we will particularly welcome work that can encompass our ‘Future Journeys’ theme.

What we are looking for:

  1. The Great Spare Parts Arts Parade – Artists designed vehicles, bicycles, mobile installations that can take art in the Great Spare Parts Art Parade (existing or new commissions)
  2. Spare Parts Village – Static installations and performances in, on and around vehicles that can form part of the Spare Parts ‘Junk Yard’ Village.
  3. Spare Partists – Strolling or mobile performers, especially with a transport or travel theme, to perform throughout the day and take part in the Parade
  4. Spare Participation –Freelance artists, organisations or participatory arts companies who can help communities develop their own content (vehicles and moving installations) for the festival (especially but not exclusively to create a community designed mobile scooter display team).
