6-Minute Escape

Are you an artist with a message that fits the theme of “Transformation”?

The Arts Council Haliburton Highlands is looking for contributors to its 6-Minute Escape series celebrating the arts on video.

The first episode of “The 6-Minute Escape” premiered on October 3, 2020 to rave reviews. It featured well-known Canadian authors, alongside local authors, recounting stories related to the theme of “Beyond the Borders of Home”.

Launched as a program to promote the arts in Haliburton County, to make connections within and beyond our community, and, initially, to serve as a source of meaningful entertainment during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arts Council intends to make this a regular event. It is also a fundraising event with contributions via GoFundMe to help support the work of the Arts Council.

The Arts Council hopes that the second episode will feature artists from a broad spectrum of artistic genres including, but not limited to, visual art, dance, music, theatre, and literary.

Please submit a proposal to the Arts Council~Haliburton Highlands (ACHH) for a chance to have your 6-minute video become a part of the second episode of “The 6-Minute Escape: Transformations” premiering in mid-April.

The initial submission should include a sample video of at least a 1-minute excerpt of the planned final piece.

To learn more about the submission process and requirements please visit https://haliburton.librariesshare.com/6minuteescape/ . Deadline for submissions is February 1, 2021 with successful candidates being notified by February 15th and the final video due on March 15, 2021
