Proposals are now invited for Hazard 2012
Deadline 6pm Friday 31 May 2012:
Hazard 2012 – Saturday 21 July 2012 – Manchester City Centre
Presented by Word of Warning, produced by hÅb and Larkin’ About in collaboration with the participating artists.
A micro-festival of incidental intervention and sited performance, with a hint of mischief! Chance encounters and random occurrences… cheeky, thought-provoking and sometimes raunchy sprees of eccentricity…
In a 2012 Britain, seemingly obsessed with the notion of games and playing, Manchester’s unique micro-festival of all things bizarre and mischievous returns for its fourth outing and is inviting you to come and play with the city… and to see if it will play along with you..!
So far we’ve wrapped Cathedral Gardens in fluttering hazard tape, given the image of banking a makeover, circumnavigated the city by canoe and created a wheelchair moonlanding… Look out for a flash of yellow and black to see what 2012 will bring…!
To date Hazard has produced three micro-festivals of sited performance and intervention - over 60 artists have taken to the streets of Manchester including: Action Hero, Alex Bradley, Angel Club North, Richard DeDomenici, Eggs Collective, Jordan McKenzie, Michael Pinchbeck, Mkultra, Shahram Entekhabi and the vacuum cleaner.

In 2012 we are seeking to do it all again, once more incorporating an outbreak of pervasive gaming courtesy of Larkin' About.
We are also looking for generous people to help support the project – so if you can spare a fiver (or more!) please have a look at our pitch here
This year we are using St. Ann’s Square as our focal hub, with projects happening in, or radiating out from there.
We are now looking for proposals for work that intervenes in public spaces, for a daytime event (12-5pm) on Saturday 21 July in Manchester City Centre.
A small honorarium/expenses is available.
