Spraoi International Street Arts Festival stages its 21st anniversary event on August 2, 3 & 4 2013. Spraoi’s philosophy is informed by a passion to engage audiences with imaginative work by artists primarily, though not exclusively, in outdoor urban environments.     


Spraoi International Street Arts Festival invites proposals from Irish street artists, companies, and artists from other disciplines for the creation of a new work to be staged at Spraoi and other festivals in 2013.


€5,000 will be made directly available to the selected individual/company to utilise at their discretion to develop the work. An additional €5,000 will be applied to the development process as agreed between Spraoi and the commissioned company or individual artist, depending on the selected work’s requirements. Spraoi envisages investing additional: time, personnel, premises and equipment.


Submissions are invited as of December 2012 and must be submitted to Spraoi by January 31, 2013. The selected work will be announced in February 2013.

Selection Process:

By, but not exclusively, Spraoi’s Artistic Director and a practitioner from abroad.
