Sweet and Dandy as part of the 2019 Coastal Currents Festival curated a number of accessible street level visual arts pieces that added to the impact the festival had already made in recent years…
Since the challenges of COVID – Coastal Currents wants to help support the creative economy with as many opportunities as possible…so we created digital platforms for showcasing culture and supporting the creative economy at this time.
We started AUDIOTROPE – a platform for musicians to support their digital presence and provide them with gigs and audiences at a time they need them most.
We have found there has been a profound effect on everyone involved.
We are currently still unfunded and would welcome any donations which we promise will go direct to musicians.
If you would like to watch the performances you can see them here and watch live every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday Acoustic at 4pm.
If you are a performer who is looking for a gig – do contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
SUBMISSIONS WILL OPEN FOR 2021 BY THE END OF MARCH….watch this space but do get planning your event…
WE WILL ALSO TRY TO KEEP SUBMISSIONS COMING TO KEEP THE CREATIVE ECONOMY GOING>>>
