Showcase for young and emerging creatives

Submissions now open

9 September 2017 11am - 9pm


Float. is a project aiming to showcase and support young and emerging creatives. The programme offers an open platform to share ideas, create dialogues and begin exciting collaborations.


Originally conceived through the Circuit programme, a four year project led by Tate and funded by The Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Float. is now working in partnership with Firstsite, Colchester and their young people’s programme, more commonly known as Young Art Kommunity.
At Float. events you can expect to see a variety of artwork, music performances and workshops, with the chance to speak to all of the creatives involved about the work on show.

The next public showcase to be exhibited at Firstsite is Sat 9 September 2017, under the theme of ‘Identity’. To submit work, please fill in an application using this form. Closing date for submissions is 2nd September.
