    On Friday 27th September, as darkness begins to fall, indoor and outdoor projections will pop up across a range of venues in Dalston, East London, beaming out inspiring artworks for one night only.

    Supporting and promoting contemporary image making, Night Contact aims to bring together exciting and innovative photographic works that provoke or engage in conversations with other media, such as film, music and literature. All of the works will embrace the projection format, through experimental edits, collaborations with other artists, and the use of sound, narrative, movement, colour and rhythm.

    Centred around Gillett Square, a specially installed bank of screens will show site-specific commissioned and curated work. There will be stalls, music, food and drink, with vouchers offering deals at local bars and eateries. Beyond the main square, the festival will break out into a trail of six satelllite venues, taking over the streets of Dalston across outdoor spaces, bars and music venues, each showing a programmed screening.

    The majority of the work we show will come from open submissions; these will be accompanied by a curated programme to ensure a varied, engaging and inspiring final line-up.

    Three £1,000 grants are available for the production of collaborative works, in addition to an open call out for submissions. Submit your work here.

    Night Contact is produced by Contact Editions with the support of the Arts Council England.
