Call for Submission: QUIET PARADE Nocturne 2022

In collaboration with MSVU Art Gallery, and with support from the
hr-s/> Bluenose Ability Arts and Film Festival and
hr-g/> Eyelevel Gallery, artist
hr-w/> Aislinn Thomas is seeking proposals and participants for QUIET
PARADE, a sensory-friendly celebration taking place in Kjipuktuk / Halifax
on the afternoon of October 15, as part of Nocturne 2022.

As its name suggests, QUIET PARADE will be a parade but also a platform to
collectively create a vibrant, extravagant, low-stimulation event that
embraces access as a shared and interdependent practice. Through parade
floats, creative movement, wearable art, puppeteering, and other forms of
creative non-auditory expression, QUIET PARADE seeks to embody a quiet that
interrupts the noise of the city, experimenting with new ways of creating
and sharing space together.

While all are welcome to submit a proposal, QUIET PARADE centres folks who
are Mad, d/Deaf, Sick, disabled, chronically ill, Spoonie, Crip,
neurodivergent, and labelled with intellectual or developmental disability.
QUIET PARADE recognizes that disability and language are fluid and that
there can be barriers to identifying as disabled. 

QUIET PARADE holds space for uncertainty about disability identity and for
those who do not have a relationship with disability culture, language, or
community. Proposals that support and prioritize BIPOC (Black, Indigenous,
and People of Colour), racialized, LGBTQIA2S+, and multiply marginalized
artists, creativity, and communities are encouraged. There are no
limitations to who can propose an idea for the parade - individuals,
artists, ad-hoc community groups, or organizations are all encouraged to
submit proposals. Fully formed concepts are not necessary and applicants are
invited to interpret the Call for Proposals creatively.

Deadline for proposals: June 3, 2022 at noon ADT. If you have questions or
need any assistance/support with your proposal, please contact
<mailto:quietparade2022 at gmail.com> quietparade2022 at gmail.com.
