Interdisciplinary Series

The IGNITE! Festival plays artistic matchmaker!

We are calling for emerging artists of any discipline (e.g. literature & poetry, music, burlesque, theatre, dance, film & animation, visual arts, and anything else) who would like to be paired with an artist from a different discipline to create an eight to 10 minute new creation that will be performed on the IGNITE! main stage.

We’re working with Loft 112, a creative hive where ideas are given space to develop, a place where established and emerging writers, readers, artists and poets are supported, a place where unheard voices are given a platform and a place of collaboration.
