The O+ Festival is a celebration of art, music and wellness that creates a bridge to access health care for its participating artists/musicians. O+ fosters complete physical, mental and social well-being by connecting musicians and visual artists directly with a coalition of healthcare and wellness providers/resources in a shared vision to nurture the individual and the community.
O+ KINGSTON is now accepting submissions for its 2018 festival (October 5-7, 2018) from bands, solo artists and ensembles (multimedia artists and those specializing in sound installation are encouraged to submit detailed proposals for new work/installation/etc., inspired/informed by year’s festival theme, SHADOW (click HERE for more information ).
ACCEPTED submissions will be invited to perform at this year’s festival in exchange for access to care in the O+ Artists’ Clinic (click HERE for detailed information on our mission or HERE for typical health and wellness services available). You can expect to be notified regarding your submission by late June. This year we expect to receive well over 200 submission for just about 50 available performance slots, so we ask for your patience and understanding, should your submission not be accepted for this year.
A note to O+ Music Alumni: if you have played O+ KINGSTON within the past 2 years, we will happily review and consider your submission, but the music committee may give priority to submissions from musicians who have yet to perform at O+ KINGSTON.
We eagerly anticipate your submissions! Positively,
The O+ KINGSTON Music Committee
