Cementa Call Out


NOW CLOSED. Closes 15 September. To mark the passing of their would-have-been-amazing 2021 festival, Cementa is hosting The Spirit of ’21, a two day digital event. They are calling for all kinds of digital content for the new online event.

The Spirt of ’21 will see Cementa artists take to the online environment with all the energy, creativity and curiosity that you would have experienced at the in-person festival, to celebrate our community and the wonderful things that we make and do.

For The Spirit of ’21, Cementa is calling out far and wide across the vast interwebs to global makers, creators, schemers, dreamers, pretenders, storytellers, and the folk who would like to participate in an hour long OPEN MIKE event. Have you got some art? Can you tell a story? Is your name Mike? Do your friends think you are weird? Then Cementa want to hear about it!
So what do you need to do?
Cementa is looking for approximately 20 short, 1-3 minute videos to include in a live broadcast session that we are running for The Spirit of ’21 on 15 October 2021.
The videos can be as creative, experimental, reflective, radical, anarchic, dangerous, animated or playful as you like. Just make sure they are under three minutes!
Send them your links to either YouTube, Instagram, Tiktok or compressed MP4s in Dropbox/Google Drive so we can check them out. Send them to:
Please include your name, name of work, year made and your social media handle or web address. Please include any copyright information relevant to the work.
The deadline for submissions is 15 September 2021.
If you are successful Cementa will be in touch for larger files for broadcast by 24 September 2021
They won’t be able to showcase every submission during The Spirit of ‘21, however we will be looking for other opportunities to make this a regular event, and will keep all submissions in consideration for future programming. Cementa acknowledges the time and effort people make toward being creative, and sharing that with the world.
