SHIFT: ibpcpa

DEADLINE:12 March 2020

SHIFT: The International Biennale of Performance, Collaborative and Participatory Arts [SHIFT: ibpcpa] is a non-profit art initiative with a specific focus on performance, collaborative and participatory art practices.

[SHIFT: ibpcpa] provides a platform for artists to interpret and present work, for an international biennale based on ‘junction-making’ and ‘networked’ performances which enable an exclusive focus on performance practices including collaborative and/or participatory elements between artists and other non-art disciplines.

The 2020 theme is SPACE / PLACE / MEANING


The [SHIFT:ibpcpa] committee look forward to receiving applications from artists with an awareness of what SPACE / PLACE / MEANING could represent or explore. For example, memory, understanding, haptic, phenomenological or other sensory knowledge of a single or combination of stated areas. These can range from hypothetical to lived and experienced areas exploring how do we create meaning, space and place for ourselves, for society and as groups.

The first [SHIFT:ibpcpa] will present projects from artists with a unique interpretation of the concept of SPACE / PLACE / MEANING. Artists must include these elements into their work while also retaining the main focal points of the biennale (performance, collaborative or participatory practices).


The biennale lasts from June 2020 until August 2020 and is networked. Meaning work can exist within the digital and/or physical domains where necessary… networked and nomadic projects traversing the hypothetical space and physical place.
