Calling All Aspiring Photographers and Film Makers!

5 07 2008

Diverse Arts and Culture Works is taking entries for Facing East 2008, 48 Hours in the Life of East Austin. We picked up a flyer and unfortunately we are running late.  They are accepting video and film entries for the upcoming exhibition. Obviously you read that it was 48 Hours, which actually started yesterday at noon. So don’t waste time, get going!

Here is some more info taken from their web site.

Facing East: 48 Hours in the life of East Austin
Summer 2008 

Creative Opportunity 

Who: New East Gallery
What: Call for Entries: Photo/Film capturing life in East Austin
Where: East Austin
When: Shooting weekend: July 4th-6th, 2008; Submission deadline for photography: July 11th; film/video: July 22nd   

DiverseArts Culture Works’ New East Gallery is looking for photography and film/video entries to be exhibited in “Facing East: 48 Hours in the life of East Austin,” an annual documentation of Central-East Austin’s culture-rich community that reflects diverse views of rapidly changing – or unchanged – aspects of East Austin as seen through the eyes of various artists.  Images are to reflect the identity of East Austin as documented on Independence Day weekend, July 4th-6th, and will be submitted to jury to be selected for the August 2nd opening.  

“Facing East” is part of founder Harold McMillan’s larger mission for the Austin Blues Family Tree Project.  The living record of Austin musicians and artists’ oral histories and performances was created in an effort to address the large-scale scarcity of collected archival materials that document the personal lives, neighborhoods, and institutions found east of IH35.   

Artists can access the entry form in pdf format on the DiverseArts website or pick up a hard copy at the New East Gallery located at 1601 East 5th Street, suite 106, and other locations throughout Austin – call 512.477.9438 for locations.
