This year //BUZZCUT// and Home Live Art are joining forces to give four artists the opportunity to attend the festival through //at HOME with BUZZCUT// bursaries.
With over 400 applications to Buzzcut 2016 and limited amount of programme space, together the teams have selected four applicants from the list unable to be programmed to still go to the festival as attendees.
An opportunity to see the programme, grow connections and benefit from five days of interesting conversations and communal meals, the chosen artists will also receive financial support to cover the costs of their travel, accommodation and per diems.
The selected artists for 2016 are:
Talking about the new collaboration with Buzzcut, HLA co-director Jane Greenfield noted “Home Live Art is thrilled to be supporting the wonderful Buzzcut festival this year! With our modest resources we wanted to find a way of supporting artists in the most direct way possible. So we have teamed up with Buzzcut by offering travel and accommodation expenses to a number of artists who didn’t quite make the final festival line up but whom we all felt would benefit from attending the festival”
//BUZZCUT// began its life on 15th December 2011, in a cold flat in Glasgow. Since then it has grown and evolved and they are thrilled to be working towards their fifth annual festival. //BUZZCUT// is a collaboration between two artists in Glasgow dedicated to creating exciting, supportive environments for artists and audiences to experiment with cutting edge live performance.
This year’s festival will take place at the Pearce Institute in Glasgow between 6th – 10th April. Visit the website to see the full programme.
