We're having a few issues with not all emails we send out via Gmail being received.
So please check your spam folders, and if at all possible set metonymy emails as 'not spam'.

If you need to contact us urgently, PLEASE feel free to call or text Hannah-May on 021 263 9013 (please call after 5 as she has one of those 'real' jobs).

Update - submissions

- Photographs of work/still images - must be 300 dpi minimum (see email for delivery address if file size over 3megs)

- Ideas on installation
- Any other works (poems perhaps) to go along side the images that you might like to appear in the publication as a part of your work. (Please note, if works are too long, excerpts may be taken)

These are for our reference so we start getting an idea of what this exhibition will look like and can start sourcing materials for presentation/hanging. And so that the publication can be put together in time for the exhibition. Just email these through to us at our email address, (Or post images to delivery address. If you need this address again, please send as an email)

The panel have requested to see the actual works which we are still working out the logistics of, but will get back to you about this soon. It is likely we will be asking for you to deliver works to Cross Street Studios by a date between the 5th and 9th of May, so please be prepared for this.

If you are creating products for the merch table we will need these by the 12th with a detailed description and pricelist.
