Infringe Buffalo

The Buffalo Infringement Festival is one of our greatest assets when it come to paying tribute to our diverse cultural scene. The week-long event opens doors for artists of all calibers and backgrounds, who are allowed to express themselves at unique and open neighborhood venues – whether that means bringing poetry to a pub or theater to a parking lot. The Buffalo Infringement Festival allows the city to come alive in a way that is both inclusive and collaborative. Impromptu venues appear and then disappear. Artists are given the chance to experiment with an urban canvas of color, sound and movement that leaves lasting impressions on the host neighborhoods.

“Infringement is a non-profit-driven, non-hierarchical grassroots endeavor, currently accepting applications for the 2014 Festival. This year’s festival will run from July 24 to August 3. The deadline for entries is May 1.”

Proposals for the 2014 festival can be made online here. Infringement welcomes all musicians, visual artists, dancers, poets, actors, filmmakers, performance artists and street performers to be involved. There are no fees to enter and every application is accepted. Once you have started an application, you can go back to it at any time and add or change information. Registering early keeps you in touch with the monthly events and fundraisers and links you with an organizer in your genre of art. It also helps organizers plan ahead with volume, as the festival grows larger every year..Applying is easy:
