Trailer Park is an area within the Electric Picnic Festival, which celebrates the humble caravan, the utilitarian mobile home, the converted van, the rebuilt camper—creating a village of intimate venues, interactive cultural outposts, miniature restaurants, wacky clinics and oddball theatres. This year, for the first time, the Electric Picnic is inviting you to make an Art Caravan to join the circus, to become part of Trailer Park, and to contribute to the Electric Picnic as a ‘maker’.
Trailer Park will offer a number of grants for the purpose of partially funding specific art caravan projects, in the vicinity of €300 to €2,000. One larger grant will be awarded, if an exceptional art caravan idea is proposed. These bursaries are not for labour; they are for materials. We are looking for projects that stand on their own as installations, independent of performances or activities, although these may well accompany and complete the installation.
