Interstitial Spaces: Collaborations & Creative Catalysts

Call to Artists

Deadline for Submissions: Jan 24, 2022

An interdisciplinary festival made possible by a partnership between OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS, Art and Education Complex (AEC), Bend Campus, & OSU Extension.


Looking for artists, writers, technologists, DIY makers, digital, poets, film, video & performance artists, songwriters, musicians, scientists, engineers, and more!

Soundbox 5 is looking for new and collaborative works that demonstrate intermedia, cross-disciplinary storytelling and creativity, exploratory humanities research, improvised and popular forms of making, collaborative field work, technologies, or process-driven arts. We are excited about works that  investigate our practice and ourselves, look for ways to move beyond our comfort zones, foster imaginative and evocative discoveries, and participate in transformative learning, experiential and expressive experiences. 

Open to ALL fields of Land Grant Research Frameworks, and Community Networks. Open to OSU Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, & the General Public.

Last year, Soundbox 4 brought together over 100+ participants–a record number of educators, community members, songwriters, video artists, engineers, sound artists, composers, animators, visual artists, and technologists. This year, we are particularly interested in showcasing class projects (from all over the campus and throughout communities)  that demonstrate new and adventurous creative collaborations!

This year we will work with the Bend campus as well as Extension to get to know each other better and make a collective statement about creativity at OSU and beyond.
