Sankofa! Festival: Open call to emerging artists

8Y0EDX4VP9Phakama are inviting emerging artists aged 16-25 across all arts forms to showcase their work as part of Sankofa! Festival 2014, a three day arts event run by Phakama’s young Creative Producers that will take place on 24th, 25th, 26th July at Queen Mary, University of London.

Reaching into the past to reinvent the future, the Sankofa! Festival will present three new performances that explore old myths and new realities. It is an opportunity for young people to produce and promote their own work. There will be a packed programme of performances, workshops and debates on important issues surrounding the arts – all produced by Phakama’s Spotlight interns – a team of emerging artists and producers aged 18-24 years old. Additionally, there will be an open space for emerging artists outside of the project to showcase a piece of work as part of the ‘Playful Interventions’.
