call-out for performers – agitate!

are you a queer, two-spirited or trans person of color or indigenous person?

agitate! is looking for performers to showcase in our second coming-out party: jizz.ism! we’re looking for talented people whose experiences reflect the intersections of multiple oppressions, and who have, as a result, experienced a lack of access or opportunity to find themselves in the spotlight. those who face other oppressions and barriers than those mentioned above are also encouraged to submit proposals.

take the stage

jizz.ism is a sexy queer dance-party celebrating agitate’s up-coming and grand endeavors. to start the party off right, we’re looking for sexy and powerful performance pieces.

we’re looking for poets, singers, storytellers, dancers, drag-performers, musicians, performance artists, comedians, etc. if you are a visual artist, and are open to doing live art-making, you are also invited to submit a proposal. if you wish to exhibit visual art, that’s cool too.


submit proposals by e-mail to agitate_ottawa@yahoo.ca, with ‘jizz.ism proposal’ in the subject line.

proposals should include the following:

  • your name, and a little bit about yourself
  • how you find you fit with agitate!’s mission
  • contact information
  • the length of your performance
  • one paragraph explaining what your performance entails
  • your technical requirements

submission deadline is november 20th, 2009. there are a limited number of time-slots available, so make sure to get your proposals in before the deadline.
