Talent Submission & Guidelines

It is time to get Wild! Do you create interactive art that is brimming with vigor? One of the wonderful aspects of ArtBeat festival is the lively energy from the various talents of our artists. The Somerville Arts Council invites jugglers, roaming performers, circus artists, unicyclists, swing dancers, installation artists, buskers, and anyone else that has fun “wild” creative energy. If this is you, we invite you to apply to participate at one of the region’s largest and most vibrant community art festivals. All are invited to apply yet preference given to local applicants. As always, we strive to have a diverse lineup, BIPOC and female-identifying artists particularly encouraged to apply.

If you are a musician/band, craft artist, or dancer, please apply to those specific calls found on our website. Do not apply via this application.


Festival Date: Saturday, July 13, 2024; noon-9pm (Rain date: Sunday, July 14) Davis Square, Somerville.
