Online Application Form


New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Reimagine for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art's 2024 programming. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme Reimagine are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component.


The push for renewal following the pandemic along with adjustments necessary to meet climate goals suggest new structures and terms for moving forward. What opportunities do those present creatively? What new stories are possible? How may the sound art of tomorrow respond to the choices that lie ahead?


NAISA encourages artists to submit works for interactive sound installations and sound sculptures for indoor and outdoor contexts. NAISA also accepts works for fixed media audio or audio-visual works, livestreaming and any emerging digital formats that include sound as a primary element.


Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your support materials by midnight on the deadline of May 26, 2023. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works chosen for presentation will receive an artist fee. Only those artists being considered for presentation will be contacted.


This year’s call includes consideration for two special awards:


The James Bailey Award - a $300 award that will recognize a work submitted by a Canadian artist to NAISA’s call for submissions which best exemplifies an inventive and adventurous spirit and pushes the boundaries of radio and transmission art.   Special consideration will be given for a work submitted by an artist who is new to the field of radio and transmission art.  This annual award has been established by NAISA from a gift made by Kevin Austin.


The Andra McCartney Mentorship Award - a mentorship residency awarded to an artist who has submitted a work and is new to the field of sound art and living in Northern Ontario.
