The Arts by the Sea festival champions talent and high-quality work and aims to support both established and emerging artists at early stages of their career.

The Open Call for artists is an annual scheme organised by the festival focused on supporting early career artists in the development of their work. The festival invites artists from around the country to respond to a brief, and the scheme offers a number of commissions for artists to realise their ideas at the festival. Artworks range from brand new commissions of installations or performances, to redevelopments of existing work.

This year Arts by the Sea welcomes two Open Call artists ‘Artemis’ and ‘Levantes Dance Theatre’.
