How to get involved:
We’re extending our Fringe and planning a digital ‘get together’ for the whole month of December – and we’re inviting you to bring something to the party.
Now, every decent party has a buffet and that’s where you come in. We want sumptuous performances and creative offerings to tempt and delight – photography, paintings, textiles, craft, spoken word, music, rap, monologues, sketches, you name it…
You could bring along something light or something more substantial; something traditional or something with some unusual ingredients or a surprise twist – with a sprinkling of seasonal spice or a pinch of festive flavouring.
Let’s make it a really good spread – you know how it is with buffets. Too many tubs of humous and batches of sausage rolls and it gets a little indigestible.
What will you bring to share?
The Festive Fringe runs throughout December 2020 and will take place across our ILF Fringe Social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter) with a dedicated page linked to the Ilkley Literature Festival website.
To submit your Festive Fringe ‘buffet’ offering you must be based in or have a strong connection to Yorkshire. Please email email@example.com and include a short bio about yourself and your work (up to 50 words). We’ll let you know within a few days if it’s going to make it to the table.
- Please make a short film of yourself reading or performing your work, or send us an image of your visual work (eg painting, textiles, crafts)
- Films can be anything from 10 seconds up to a maximum of 5 mins
- If you are unfamiliar with filming, here are some tips for creating good quality filmed content and here is how to make a video on your smartphone.
- Please let us have links to any social media channels or websites you use for your creative work
[If you are under the age of 16 and would like to get involved in the 2020 Digital Fringe Showcase, please arrange for a parent/carer to get in touch about your submission.]
