Call for Artists – Up the Wall

Chester Performs are organising an event in October and are looking for artists to submit proposals for works. Below you will find their call and details of the event.


Up the Wall
A happening at twilight

Thursday 2nd – Saturday 4th October 2008
Call for Artists

Following the success of last year’s ‘twilight happening’ Chester Performs is looking for artists to take part in this year’s Up the Wall, which will take place Thursday 2nd – Saturday 4th October between 7pm and 10pm in Chester.

Up the Wall is a glorified mass promenade along an area of the city walls, one of Chester’s most famous features. This year Chester Performs has teamed up with the Cathedral and plans to include this fantastic building within the route.

Promenaders will be treated to an extreme range of the exciting, unusual and bizarre.

Chester Performs is looking for artists to take part by contributing personal and relevant work to the route either through existing work or site specific installations.

We would like to hear expressions of interest from artists who specialise in:

  • New Media/digital installation
  • Sound installation
  • Installation art
  • Live art

If you are an artist specialising in one or more of the areas above and you would like to find out more, download a copy of the Artists’ Brief at or contact Louisa Scarre either by email or by calling 01244 409113.
Deadline for submissions: Friday 5th September 2008
