Co.Lab Sound is an experimental testbed for artists to develop new work and collaborate live. Informed by a long line of experimental music, sound art and performance, these events embrace the processes of improvisation and experimentation to showcase artists expanding the field of sound art and what it means to experience art live.

Performing is inherently participatory, our aim is to develop a new dialogue between the audience and our exhibiting artists, collectives and musicians, by making the audience a part of the making process. We encourage the disruptive, the active and outspoken. Take part, take in and be live.

NB: Submission is free. If you are selected, we will ask for a £20 contribution and some of your time. 

Deadline: 23:59 on Sun 22 March 2020.
