The Architecture Fringe 2018 Open Call is now open for your proposals for events, projects and exhibitions.
Initiated by a group of architects, photographers, engineers, landscape architects, visual artists, curators and musicians the Architecture Fringe is an independent, contributor-led open platform for new work and projects across the arts which explores architecture and its impact. The Architecture Fringe acts as a platform for self-initiated projects from practitioners in any field. The inaugural Architecture Fringe took place in 2016. Our second edition occurred in July 2017 hosting work from around 260 contributors across 50 projects in 37 venues.
For the Architecture Fringe 2018, a provocation entitled COMMON / SENSES has been issued, and projects can respond to a number of themes and threads within this framework. A document providing information and advice around planning and submitting a project can be found on our website (www.architecturefringe.com).
How you use the platform and provocation is up to you – projects may take the form of exhibitions, performances, discussions, screenings, installations, writing, lectures, walks, music, temporary structures…
Submissions to the Architecture Fringe 2018 open programme must be real and scheduled to take place between 8 – 24 June 2018. To submit your confirmed project for the open programme you will need to provide the required information no later than 12 noon on Monday 9th April 2018.
The Architecture Fringe runs open monthly meet-ups for anyone interested in taking part in the open programme. The meet-ups are open to all and free to attend – just turn up! The meet-ups alternate between Glasgow and Edinburgh and are a great way to get a feel for the Architecture Fringe and to meet other people. These are a chance to share your project ideas and plans by pinning up thoughts and images with feedback from both the Architecture Fringe team and the wider network and to learn more about the programme as it emerges. The meet-ups also act as milestones for both the core and open programmes as we progress towards June.
More information regarding submission requirements and a programme of dates for the meet-ups can be found on our website:

Deadline is Monday 9 April 2018 at 12 noon
