The Performance Arcade 2023 CALL FOR PROPOSALS 

The Performance Arcade announces its open call to artists from Aotearoa and around the world for its 2023 programme of works (open 16th – 26th February 2023).

The Performance Arcade is an annual exhibition and festival programme of events located on Wellington Waterfront, with eleven years of successful presentations from 2011-2022. 

Our hybrid gallery/stage architecture is made from an assembly of shipping containers that create a series of spaces for installation, performance art, sonic art, interactive media, video-art, forums, theatre, dance, and live music. Opening onto the bustling Wellington Waterfront, these sites of encounter engage the public in contemporary art and performance practices outside the familiar constraints of gallery or theatre spaces, experienced by 60-90,000 people each year.

Key developments for our 2023 programme include:

  • Defining Māori curatorial frameworks, roles, and tikanga for the event
    + performance art generally
  • A range of performance platforms and programmes for artists to choose from
  • Up to NZ$5000 available to fund each selected work.  

For more information and to apply, go to:  

Applications are due by 5.00pm Friday 29th July 2022 (NZ time).
