DISTANCE – Lacuna Festivals 2021
Deadline for applications: 31 March 2021

For this year’s Lacuna Festivals the theme is ‘Distance’, a suggestion from our creative community and one that feels globally appropriate for the current context of the year – DISTANCE

The International Contemporary Art Festivals for Fuerteventura and Lanzarote will again (as in 2020) take place as LACUNA FESTIVALS, but over distance (due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic), using a range of online platforms including YouTube, ArtSteps, Flickr, Facebook and Instagram. There will be no physical festival or events this year and instead all exhibitions and events will take place digitally. This is just one of many reasons why the theme of DISTANCE felt so appropriate for this year.
TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK FOR THE FESTIVAL – There are NO submission fees or other hidden charges, it is totally FREE to apply. We accept all submissions that relate to the festival theme. All creatives, artists, makers, designers, performers, writers, musicians etc are welcome to apply.
The deadline for applications is 31st March 2021.
How will you interpret the theme DISTANCE?
