Phantasmagoria Art Festival
Posted April 6th, 2010 - 7:37 am by from Kingston, Canada (Permalink)
Hi

You are receiving this message, because your profile indicates that you are interested in arts. Please do not consider this invitation as a spam.

Phantasmagoria is a three-day long, annual art festival, taking place on second weekend of September in tiny hamlet of Yarker, Ontario. In 2010 it will be September 10th to September 12th.

According to several dictionaries, Phantasmagoria is a bizarre or fantastic combination, collection or assemblage. It is also a constantly shifting complex succession of things seen or imagined. Finally, in 18th and 19th Century they used name Phantasmagoria for weird pre-cinema ghost shows, based on optical illusion. Our vision of the festival is based on all of these definitions. Phantasmagoria is a surrealistic event, a dream turned into life, an impossible turned into done, a trip to another planet

Phantasmagoria involves all art disciplines: visual arts, poetry, film, theatre, dance and whatever else you can think of. It unites all sorts of people: professional artists and amateurs, stars and beginners, artists and people who used to shrug when you told them about art, local residents and tourists from big cities. It's three days of fun in the tiny village somewhere out in the sticks.

There will be a camping field available for the price of $ 10 per night. Apart from that there are many Couchsurfers in nearby cities, Kingston and Napanee and there will be a shuttle bus from there to the festival site.

We will be happy to see the Couchsurfers participating in this event. If you are an artist and you wish to submit your art for the festival, please contact us before April 20th, 2010 at: submissions@outinthesticks.ca

If you just want to come and have fun, please join this Event, so we know we should expect you. Please, also spread the word about this event. More details available at the website:http://www.outinthesticks.ca/phantasmagoria.html
