Calling all artists, curators and cultural instigators! Are you running an event or exhibition during Liverpool Biennial 2016 (9 July – 16 October), or considering it?

The Double Negative magazine is facilitating a gathering of like-minded people who are interested in running an independent event alongside this year’s festival, and would like to form part of the Biennial Fringe. The 14 weeks of the UK’s largest contemporary art festival is a great moment to host an event, as many national and international visitors and journalists come to the city to experience what it has to offer. This includes the official Biennial programme of exhibitions, talks and events, but also independent screenings, gigs, performances, symposiums, mini-festivals and happenings hosted by talented individuals and collectives.

So if that’s you, why not meet other artists, curators, event organisers, cultural instigators and possible collaborators? The Double Negative is holding an informal gathering at the Biennial office on Monday 18 April at 5pm, where you can also hear more about current public funding opportunities that you may wish to take advantage of to help you finance your project. Find out as well how you can get news of your event out to thousands across the UK in a special fringe edition of the Culture Diary guide, produced and distributed by The Double Negative.

Can’t make it? Don’t worry, if you have an event you would like to submit for inclusion in the Biennial Fringe, then you can download a submission form  here and email it to laura@thedoublenegative.co.uk. Deadline for submissions is Friday 6 May 2016.

All welcome!

Biennial Fringe Participant Meeting: Monday 18 April 5-6pm at the Liverpool Biennial office, Baltic Triangle, 55 New Bird Street, L1 0BW — FREE (just drop in, no booking required)
