Request For Proposals

Submit Proposals for Festival Workshops (20 - 23 September 2018)


The Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival, hosted in Twillingate, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, is a four-day festival which celebrates all things digital combined with adventure, entertainment and food for an experience to remember!

2018 will be our fourth festival and again it will offer up something for everyone: for the person whose main tool is a smart phone or an iPad to the person with all the high-end gear; whether someone is a wannabe, a social media nut, a hobbyist or really, really good at digital creating!

Unscripted Twillingate is the place to create that next unscripted moment!


All events/experiential workshop will take place in Twillingate or neighbouring communities/ areas.

Specific locations within the area will be dictated by workshop requirements and/ or requests along with availability and cost factors. Workshops can take place indoor and outdoors – it is the objective to create activities that allow participants to experience Twillingate’s beauty and heritage.

If you require or are interested in a particular type of environment for your workshop, please include details in your proposal. But, please indicate whether this is a necessity for your workshop or “a nice to have” so we can assess the submission accordingly.


The festival will be held for four days, Thursday, September 20 to Sunday, September
23, 2018 inclusive.


All workshops must have a “digital” element, however, we are open to receiving any and all proposals that include some form of digital creativity in an experiential (hands-on) format.

At our previous festivals, digital topics have included filmmaking, photography, music, online publishing, drawing, Geocaching, vlogging and blogging.

We would be very interested in exploring topics outside of this listing as well. Each workshop experience will be between 2 and 3 hours long.
