(deviant) Art 2007 - Call for proposals

Call for proposals - (deviant) Art 2007

The Deviant Art Festival happened in July 2006 in the town of Trollhättan in Sweden. We have been invited to return next year. The festival is expanding with the addition of new exhibition spaces, an increased budget and a larger organising team.

This all means that we need a fresh batch of artists to get involved…

We are open to submissions; visit to download proposal information.

To learn more visit the festival blog: which has info and images from last years events.

We look forward to hearing from you.
