24-HOUR FESTIVAL PROMPTS ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, AND PERFORMERS TO GET CREATIVE
February 9, 2018 – Fort Myers, FL – On March 3rd and 4th, Ghostbird Theatre Company Presents the 11th Annual 24-Hour Festival! Visual artists, filmmakers, theatre artists, dancers, musicians, and poets race against a 24-hour clock to create unique works based on prompts given by Barry Cavin, Artistic Director of Ghostbird Theatre Company. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First St. in the historic downtown Fort Myers River District.
Artists of all types and ages are invited to participate in the 24-Hour Festival! You may not yet know how creative you can be in 24 hours, but you’ll have so much fun you won’t even feel the sleep deprivation. Cash awards of $500 will be given to best visual artwork, best video, best live performance, and best musical performance. Artists must register through our online registration process–all guidelines are also posted there at www.ghostbird.ticketleap.com. Slots are limited, and so we recommend that artists and performers register now!
This is a free event, with doors opening at 6:30 on Sunday, March 4, and the performances beginning promptly at 7:00 p.m at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. Audiences are invited to experience what the competitors have created from their prompts in just 24 hours! This event is supported by grants from the City of Fort Myers and the Lee County Tourist Development Council.
