International Festivals and Venues for Installation/Performance/AV works
I'm looking for a home for a new installation/performance project and wondered if any of you had suggestions of festivals and venues that you can share? Hopefully this could become a really useful resource for the isadora community.Here are a couple of UK ones to kick off with:Fierce festival of live art – Birmingham, [http://www.wearefierce.org/](http://www.wearefierce.org/)Watermans - Brentford, [http://www.watermans.org.uk/](http://www.watermans.org.uk/)AV Festival – Newcastle, [http://www.avfestival.co.uk/](http://www.avfestival.co.uk/)Alpha-ville - London, [http://www.alpha-ville.co.uk/](http://www.alpha-ville.co.uk/)b-side - Dorset, [http://www.b-side.org.uk/](http://www.b-side.org.uk/)Curve Gallery, Barbican - London, [http://www.barbican.org.uk/artgallery](http://www.barbican.org.uk/artgallery)Hazard - Manchester, [http://www.wordofwarning.org/spring-summer-2012/WARN012/](http://www.wordofwarning.org/spring-summer-2012/WARN012/)
That's really cool thanks for sharing! I get a lot of emails through work so I will add them as time goes by.
Here a few from the Netherlands:
Dutch Electronic Arts festival - Rotterdam: http://deaf.nl/
GOGBOT festival - Enschede: http://2012.gogbot.nl/nl/
STRP festival - Eindhoven: http://strp.nl/nl/
PICNIC - Amsterdam: http://www.picnicnetwork.org
Impakt festival - Utrecht: http://www.impakt.nl/
Festival aan de Werf - Utrecht: http://www.festivalaandewerf.nl/

This is by no means a complete list but the first ones I think of when needing to see interactive installations and electronic art.
Many other festivals, especially for fine and performance art have some sideshow with installation work and interactive performances!
