Emergency is our annual platform for live art + contemporary performance, featuring at least 20 short pieces of work throughout a day/evening in Manchester…

Our nineteenth Emergency takes place on Saturday 6 October 2018, 12noon-10pm, in Manchester’s Z-arts (incl. STUN Studio); the call for proposals now closed.

To get a feel for it, have a look at 2017’s image gallery + programme, or delve further with 2016’s gallery + programme, 2015’s gallery + programme, 2014’s gallery + programme.

Emergency is:
• a pay-what-you-decide, public micro-festival + open submission platform;
• an opportunity for artists to meet, show, and peer-review work;
• a selection event for a number of small Works Ahead commissions to be developed + supported by hÅb.
