Open call to artists and performers from all creative disciplines to participate in the 2023 Fair Saturday cultural movement with live and online events, workshops and shows.

Fair Saturday Foundation are looking for artists and performers from all creative disciplines to take part in the sixth edition of Fair Saturday in Scotland, an exciting onsite and online cultural movement on Saturday 25 November 2023.

Fair Saturday Scotland is Scotland’s contribution to Fair Saturday, a global movement with a positive impact that takes place the day after Black Friday and aims to generate a massive mobilisation of people in favour of arts and culture, to highlight their essential role in the construction of a better future. They support the cultural world and the work of social projects. Now more than ever, culture and values are key to building a better future.

Since its inception in 2014, Fair Saturday has presented +3,000 events in +150 cities, involving +42,000 artists, and attracting +770,000 attendees. They welcome participants from all creative fields, amateur and professional, from public or private organisations, anywhere in Scotland. Past events have included music, theatre, dance, performance, street art, visual arts, photography, literature, poetry, cinema, circus.

Onsite events can take place anywhere in Scotland and will be promoted alongside online events in a global programme. Events don’t need to be programmed specifically for FS so any events you have planned for Sat 25 November 2023 could be included if you feel they tie in with Fair Saturday’s ethos of culture for positive social change. You can take part online by uploading content to their streaming platform through the Fair Saturday app or providing a link to your live event on your chosen platform.

Your event will be published in the Fair Saturday Scotland programme and globally in Fair Saturday’s programme through the website and mobile app and we will promote your event across our channels and social media.
