Let's Make some NOISE

Are you under 25? Are you creative? If you answered ‘yes’ and ‘yes’, then NOISE may be of interest to you. An arts festival with a difference, NOISE is aimed at showcasing talent and promoting creativity across a series of media platforms.

The call for submissions is now open following a live launch from Liverpool. NOISE is now accepting works from young people all across the region, whether it be in fashion, film, music, design or any other art form that can be presented digitally.

As all submissions are made online, absolutely anyone from anywhere in the region is free to enter, with all entries being judged on a level playing ground. The only condition is that the entries are under the age of 25. Within reason though – I’m sure your six year old daughter’s crayon drawing is lovely but it may come up against some stiff competition.

Originating in Australia, the festival has now spread its artistic wings across Europe, finding funding from what seems like everywhere – bodies including the Arts Council, North West Regional Development Agency (NWDA), Dept. of Culture, Media and Sport.

Peter Mearns, Director of Marketing at the NWDA, said: “England’s north west is home to some of the best creative talent anywhere in the UK and so it is extremely fitting that this festival is being launched here in the region, With 43,000 creative industry businesses in the north west employing 140,000 people, the creative sector presents enormous opportunities for our young people.”

Once all the submissions are in, NOISE will move onto its showcasing month in October this year where the best work will be awarded a good amount of media coverage. The level of support already shown by the likes of the Beeb and MSN highlights just how important this festival could be.

As well the arts submissions, there’s also going to be a range of programmes including an urban singer / songwriter competition, a regional tour of BBC buses and an initiative to work with top creative companies.
