Buffys 2022 — Call for Set Designer

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Wood Buffalo Excellence in Arts Awards (Buffys) is an annual program that recognizes and celebrates excellence in various areas of the arts throughout our region. The program also builds awareness of the incredible contribution artists make to Wood Buffalo. This year’s showcase will be delivered in a hybrid-format, allowing attendees ticketed entry to the event, or the option to watch for free from home. Arts Council aims to hire performing artists to create performances that will be showcased live, in-person and on camera through livestream at this year’s Awards Showcase on October 22, 2022.

During the pandemic, the awards were hosted online as a cinematic experience. Arts Council seeks to bring the excitement of this experience to an in-person event this year. Click here to view the 2020 and 2021 broadcasts respectively.

ABOUT THE COMMISSION

  • Set Designer will be responsible for designing and building a set inspired by this year’s theme: Future Midnight. (see more below)
  • The set will be built in the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts Black-box theatre, which will be set-up in banquet-style (round tables of 8 facing a raised platform stage). See sample rendering here. Arts Council encourages prospective designers to reconfigure the placement of these banquet tables in their proposal (e.g. your main-stage can be in the centre of the room with banquet tables around them, arena-style, etc.)
  • The successful design will encompass the entire space (e.g. extend towards the dressings on banquet tables). Considerations in the design will also need to allow for periodic video projections to be seen from all banquet tables. Finally, the design will also need to work for in-person audiences, and audiences watching from home via livestream.
  • Hired Set Designer will report to Arts Council Wood Buffalo Programs Manager Luay Eljamal.
  • Set Designer will collaborate with other artists to ensure that the set opens up opportunities for “play” among the event hosts, and award presenters.
  • A rough set rendering will be due to the Programs Manager on July 1, 2022. A final rendering of the set must be submitted to the Programs Manager by August 31, 2022. The design will be installed all day on October 20, 2022 (only). Designer is expected to be available for tech rehearsals on October 21 and 22, leading up to the event on the evening of October 22.
  • Hired Set Designer will be expected to attend regular Creative Team meetings to ensure that a cohesive vision is maintained for this year’s awards showcase. These meetings will occur monthly, and may increase in frequency closer to the final event.
  • Artists will realize this year’s vision by collaborating with others, including videographers, set designers, graphic designers, project managers, performers and nominated artists/artist groups.
  • All final submissions must be 100% original, royalty-free and free from risk of being flagged for copyright violations.

ABOUT THE THEME

  • This year’s Buffys theme is Future Midnight. Arts Council invites attendees to enter a large, immersive time machine (SECPA Blackbox Theatre), sit in their travel pods (banquet tables), and be teleported to the future, where the arts continue to thrive in Arts Council’s planned Arts Incubator. For more details on this concept, please contact Programs Manager Luay Eljamal at 587-674-1625 or [email protected]

ABOUT THE VENUE
