NOISE Festival 2014 celebrates the creative stars of tomorrow handpicked by the Festival’s Curators, a panel of the biggest and most inspirational names across music, design, fashion, art, comedy and film. The NOISE Festival takes place online, across the media and at exclusive events throughout Autumn 2014.
Following a Call for Entries, open to all ages, the most promising talent have been selected to feature in the arts festival from over 4,000 worldwide submissions by icons including Brian Eno, Architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, the Royal Academy’s Tim Marlow, leading UK Fashion Designer Giles Deacon, influential illustrator / cartoonist Gerald Scarfe and Games industry pioneer Ian Livingstone. Not only do these role models give career endorsement and tailored feedback, the NOISE Curators offer paid placements / mentorship where possible to the best emerging talent.
Produced by the award-winning NOISE arts Charity, the Festival gives undiscovered creatives a ‘money (connections?) can’t buy’ career package that includes potential press exposure and key, professional backing to further their creative industry careers. NOISE are also giving the public, industry and art lovers alike the chance to discover the future luminaries of the creative industries.
The national Autumn events programme launches on 9 September 2014 at the House of Commons, hosted by Manchester MP Lucy Powell, where selected talent will meet press and the Curators who have backed their work.
From September to November 2014, further NOISE Festival 2014 events include a two month exhibition on London’s Southbank, Design Futures as part of the London Design Festival and a Fine Art exhibition in Manchester all open to the general public.
