TaPRA 2024 Gallery

Deadline: Wednesday 10 April 2024

As part of the Theatre & Performance Research Association (TaPRA) 2024 conference, we invite proposals to exhibit audiovisual, digital and analogue documentation of research projects across theatre and performance disciplines for the TaPRA Gallery hosted by Northumbria University, Newcastle. 

This year is an open call. 

The TaPRA Gallery hosts work relating to all modes of research enquiry including practice research. Selected exhibitors from the TaPRA Gallery will also be invited to take part in an Open Panel to present on the work, but this is not a requirement. 

Along with the typical requirements for submission listed below, please also note: 

  • The format (video, audio, installation etc) 
  • If including physical materials, please specify the types of materials and a brief outline of how you imagine the materials being display (on wall, table, etc)

Videos will be displayed on flat screen TVs and audio files will be experienced through headphones, unless otherwise requested. 

Works must be delivered either in advance with very clear instructions by Monday September 2 2024 or the exhibitor will be asked to arrive on Tuesday September 3 2024 to set up their materials in preparation for conference opening on Wednesday 4 September 2024. 

All works must be collected by the end of the day on Friday 6 September (the gallery will close from 12pm on the 6th to allow this to happen). 

Any questions, please email Rachel Hann: rachel.hann@northumbria.ac.uk
