Following on from the success of last years’ Mayton Street Festival we are looking for artists with a Live Art practice who are interested in creating unusual and exciting work for a busy outdoor street party environment.

The work will be presented in Holloway, North London at the Hornsey Street Festival on Sunday 1 June 2014 from 1-5 pm and the Mayton Street Festival Saturday 7th June from 1- 5pm. Artists must be available to perform their piece on both dates.

Solo artists, companies, and artist collectives are all welcome to apply but please note that the fee cannot exceed £150.
