Deadline: July 31, 2010 LiveWire is proud to announce our 3rd annual VisionFest. LiveWire established VisionFest to expose new works to the community and get the community involved in new works. Besides helping us choose an "Image" (or "Environment" or "Theme" as we have the last two years respectively), VisionFest audience members are offered the chance to provide feedback to the playwrights and artists on the development of the pieces presented. Submissions are required to adhere to the "Image" guideline or are discarded. IMAGE: This year, playwrights will be asked to write plays based on an Image. LiveWire is putting a call out to visual artists from around the world to submit their best image for consideration. Once we have received all visual art submissions, the LiveWire Collective along with invited members of the community will choose 10-12 pieces for the entire public to vote on. The Image with the most votes will guide all play submissions. Check online for this year's Image at www.livewirechicago.com/vision.
