Cryptic - Glasgow

Call out for Cryptic Nights 2021/22 Programme




Cryptic Nights is an annual open call for emerging, Scottish-based artists to develop existing music, sound and digital works within a visual context, with support and mentoring from Cryptic. Please see:

Presented in partnership with the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow, we support talented artists with fresh ideas, crossing creative boundaries with live music, visual and sonic art. Since 2009, Cryptic Nights has presented over 280 artists.

The next deadline for applications to Cryptic Nights is 12noon (GMT) on Thursday 11 June 2020.

We are looking for ambitious, emerging artists who create high quality, innovative visual work with original music or sound-based elements at its core. We are particularly interested in submissions that use technology in new and creative ways. With Cryptic’s support, artists will be guided in the development of an existing piece of work. Please note we do not support commissions or new work, the focus is on developing existing work.
