Accessible Applications

Applications can be in written, audio, or video format. These are all submitted via Eventotron – an online arts management system. If your show is accepted into VAULT Festival, we’ll use Eventotron for gathering the information we need from you.

If uploading a video or audio application, please:

• Upload your video or audio file to a hosting site like Vimeo or YouTube and include the link on your Application Form
• State the Title of the show and your artist/company name at the start of the recording
• Read out the question you’re answering before starting your response
• Keep your responses to under one minute per question

The recording doesn’t need to be professionally edited or cut, recorded on a camera phone in your living room is fine.
