Expo Leeds 24-29 September 2009
Presented by Sound and Music and MAAP
Call For Submissions and Commission Proposals Now Open

Expo is the hub and playground of the experimental music and sound art
scene in the UK and beyond. Free and open, the event mobilises a national
network of artists and engages with communities from all backgrounds –
placing sonic art and the people who make it in direct contact with the
public. Expo steps out from traditional venues and into spaces that lie at
the heart of the community - inspiring practitioners and the public to
reconsider their environments.

Expo will land in Leeds in September 09 for a long weekend of performance,
exhibition and presentation which will take place across a variety of
physical and virtual spaces.

The weekend aims to highlight the broadest possible range of approaches
and thinking that surround the sonic arts. We welcome submissions of all
kinds. Alongside international artists. the festival has previously
showcased work by young people, disabled adults and those with learning
difficulties, students and hundreds of emerging UK artists. We want all
work of all kinds that has sound as a central element.

As well as asking for all kinds of submitted work for its programme Expo
Leeds is offering £4000 of commission money towards the creation of a new
installation work that will sit within the Leeds Arena space at Leeds City
Museum during the festival weekend.

Please visit www.expofestival.org for details on how to submit and updates
on the programme. The closing date for submissions and commission
proposals is 29 May 2009.

with best wishes
