Changes to Installations and Performance!
Obviously the pandemic has shifted how we need to approach aspects of the festival. Any attendee interactivity with installations should be noted with a plan for inhibiting possibility of transmitting SARS-CoV-2, or the COVID-19 virus. We are particularly interested in ways of interaction beyond physical so that we may provide a safer environment for all.

Also, COVID-19 precautions will continue to effect the structure and format of live performance art at SEAF 2022. SEAF will follow all state and local guidance. We welcome performance submissions at this time, while recognizing that guidelines, and the risk assessments and choices that individual performers might make, are ever evolving. Our performance curators will communicate with artists regarding requirements and guidelines for live performance art as they are clarified.

This year is the year you should submit!
If we have learned anything through the past two years, it’s that waiting for an ideal circumstance isn’t the best strategy. Now is the time to take that risk, to give life to that idea that’s been swimming provocatively in the back of your brain. We are so grateful to still be here, heading into this new year with you, and we want to see everything you’ve made. We’re ready for it.

If you have any questions, please consult the FAQ and the Submissions Guidelines and Fees page. If the FAQ or info page still does not answer your question, you are welcome to reach out to us via either email ([email protected]) or you can call us at (206) 229-2185.
