Open Call: 2nd Nieuwstraat Festival

The 2nd Nieuwstraat Festival will take place, between sunrise and sunset on an undisclosed day in May, 2021.
The performances will be carried out by volunteers, unannounced and without explanation.
The performances take place in the everyday environment and hide the unusual within the usual.
Passers-by will observe the actions, but may not recognise them as performance art.

We are open to performative concepts.
Please describe your concept in a clear and accessible language, more or less as a manual. The performances will be carried out by (often unexperienced) volunteers.
Don’t forget to mention the preferred time of the day (in relation to the opening and closing of shops, outdoor cafes, the fruit/vegetable-market).
We can only accept your submission if you include links to a website or page with some information about your practice.
Please send your submission to
Deadline: Monday, 1 February 2021, 23:59 (CET).

All works in the program of the first Nieuwstraat Festival (June 2020):
