MAMUSKA DUBLIN - Call for artists

Sunday 13th December 2009 @ THE BACK LOFT,

La Catedral Studios calls local, national and international artists to participate in the upcoming Mamuska Dublin as part of an all-day cross-media arts salon. This is a unique occasion to present and view evolving works, raw ideas, unrehearsed visions, trials and errors, short masterpieces, playful nonsense, first steps... all in the context of an informal environment where like minded people meet and receive feedback from the audience. Be a part of it!
A maximum of ten artists will present their work while a unique sound environment will permeate through out the evening.

To submit your work, fill out the attached form and return to this address.
