Electric Picnic is on the lookout for "artists, designers, dreamers and makers" to be part of its creative team in 2014. They are inviting you to design an "art caravan", to be a part of Trailer Park.
It’s now two years since Trailer Park rolled into the Picnic. Trailer Park pays homage to the humble caravan; the glittering airstream; the vaudeville circus van. With its heady mix of oddities and eccentrics that picnickers happen upon randomly, this vintage vacation park brings smiles back to those in danger of taking their music and literature too seriously.
Stylist behind Trailer Park, Roz Jellett, is excited about what entrants will bring to the table. She says, "Electric Picnic has always been head and shoulders above all the others for creativity, and now it’s the turn of its own audience to have a chance to be the creators. It's all about participating, working behind the scenes, creating your own bit of madness, and looking after your own front porch. Those who are successful just won't believe how much fun it is to work at the Picnic, it's exhilarating and it's a tonic for artists."
Your design can be anything you want it to be as long as it's interactive. The design concerns both the interior and exterior of the caravan and applicants should be aware of lighting as the festival operates at daytime and nighttime.
There are a number of grants available for materials for the most impressive entrants and the festival has a number of caravans that can be made available for your work.
