Venue: online, open 24/7



Idiom is a call for artists whose work is text /language based and who are engaged with working with writing in innovative formats. This is not an exhibition in the traditional sense of the word. Rather, Idiom will be a curated website of writings that (depending on the nature and quality of the work submitted) may turn into a publication. All works selected will be published on the Idiom and Fringe Arts Bath website.

Work submitted must in some way make reference to the City of Bath with its associated identity as heritage, history, its links to water, the concept of art as ‘Fringe’ or as a response piece to an exhibition / artwork / performance that will be shown during the Fringe Arts Bath Festival 2018. The work can be in any format / structure (for example, an exhibition review, narrative, dialogue, oulipo inspired work etc.). I am looking for innovation, experimentation and originality with work that clearly relates to the event theme but which also challenges the boundaries of writing / text / language.

Work can be submitted between March 20th and June 20th.

Curated by Fay Stevens, submit via idiom@fringeartsbath.co.uk
