GIAF invites artists to submit their work for consideration in a future festival.

Submissions for Galway International Arts Festival 2021 are open until Friday 15 January 2021.

Master Copies
Please do not send master copies of CDs or DVDs. Due to the large amount of submissions received, Galway International Arts Festival is not in a position to return materials.

Please be aware that, due to the large volume of submissions received, we cannot respond or offer assessment and feedback to every submission individually. All submissions received will be acknowledged. All submissions are reviewed and if your submission is being considered for inclusion in the Festival, we will be in contact with you.

Galway International Arts Festival is not a funding body and is a not-for-profit organisation, which raises its income from ticket sales, fundraising and sponsorship, along with public sector grants.

Selection Process
Galway International Arts Festival is a curated Festival and participation is by invitation only, with artists and productions selected by the Festival Artistic Director.
