20/07/2011
Macao Arts Festival

To enhance the development of local arts the Macao SAR Cultural Affairs Bureau, organiser of the Macao Arts Festival, is now inviting the submission of proposals for locally designed performances from all arts organisations registered in Macao. The deadline for submission of proposals is 30th September, 2011, and the selected performances will be staged in the 23rd Macao Arts Festival, to be held in May of next year.

For many years, the Macao Arts Festival has brought local residents a wonderful variety of performances and exhibitions, enriching the cultural life of Macao. As a vital component of this offering, the organisers have remained committed to providing a platform for local artists to perform and to experience cultural exchange with talent and ideas in the international arena. By adhering to its three-fold programming principle – ‘propagating the culture of the Chinese nation, exhibiting outstanding works of art from around the world and fostering the development of local art’ – the Festival provides numerous opportunities for local organisations to perform.

All registered organisations in Macao are invited to respond to the ‘Call for Local Proposals for the 23rd Macao Arts Festival’ by submitting proposals for locally-devised performances. There are no restrictions on genre or form, and the work may be previously performed or unreleased. A proposed performance must adhere to the principles of the Festival, highlighting the rich ethnic background, cultural heritage, and enduring human spirit of Macao, and possess high production standards and artistic merit.

After a proposal is selected, the Cultural Affairs Bureau will sign a performance agreement with the proposing arts organisation. The Bureau will also sponsor part of the proposal’s production costs, handle promotion and ticketing of the performance during the Festival and choose a suitable performance venue.

Interested arts organisations registered in Macao are invited to submit detailed proposals on or before 30th September, 2011. The proposals must include the creative concept, script, drafts of stage, lighting, set, costume and prop design and profiles of the scriptwriter(s), director(s), cast and main production team.

Submissions to the ‘Call for Local Proposals for the 23rd Macao Arts Festival’ should be mailed to the Cultural Events Department (DAC) of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, located at Praça do Tap Seac, Cultural Affairs Bureau Building. Please also indicate ‘Call for Local Proposals for the 23rd Macao Arts Festival’ on the envelope.
