Call to Artists: Zealous X Event, Shoreditch, London

Zealous X Event

Rich Mix, Shoreditch
Thursday 7th – Sunday 17th January 2016

Zealous proudly presents the next epic event. 10 days celebrating all things creative at the heart of Shoreditch, including industry talks, a showcase of 100 incredible creatives from across art, film, music, performance, photography and design, as well as much much more! A unique multidisciplinary creative event presenting a diverse programme under one roof: we’ll be hosting 100 artists and 55 speakers, spanning over 10 days.

Zealous X will be hosted at Rich Mix, located at the epicentre of creative London.

Rich Mix is East London’s Independent arts venue catering to all forms of creativity from businesses to emerging and renowned artists and performers.

Zealous X was born out of a need for creative talent to access physical space to showcase the best of their work.

We’re selecting 90 of you, from across 6 disciplines, to showcase your work over 10 days; so if you’re making amazing work and need a place to show, play, perform…read on!

Our first event got 4,000 people through the door over 3 days. Now, we’re presenting over 10 days, and we’re expecting quite a lot more!

But it doesn’t just stop at the physical location; we’ll also fight to get you in the media. Like we did for Elisabeth Blanchet, who was published in TimeOut. We’ll work just as hard for you this year (if not a little more!)

The exposure to your work doesn’t start at the event; it starts much sooner. The final 15 to be showcased in each discipline, will be cherry picked by an independent panel of exciting judges (to be announced soon!).

Previous judges have included

Richard Snowden


Maggie Cunningham

Former Joint Head of Programmes
BBC Scotland

Clive Lyttle

Relationship Manager

Joyce Hytner

Steve Double

We want to share your story, your successes, your challenges, and your vision with the right people.

We want to include you in talks and conversations on the future of creativity. Allowing for more exposure to your work and giving context to the subjects being debated.

When we say its about you, we mean it, and to put our money where our mouth is, we’ll be splitting profits on each ticket sold with all those selected to showcase their work at Zealous X.

40% of all tickets sold will go to participants in the artistic program (10% each to music and performance, 5% each to art, design, photography and film). We’ll be publishing a full breakdown a little closer to the time.

We will accept submissions from the 11th August to the 10th September.
