Spoke the Hub is getting ready for its 20th annual Local Produce Festival of the Performing Arts and they want your input. This year, the grass roots “green market” of dance, music, theater, poetry, and everything in between will be held on Saturday June 1 at the Old Stone House Park, and on Sunday June 2 in three Park Slope community gardens.
Here’s where you come in: the arts organization is taking proposals from performance artists who are interested in either performing something site-specific at each location, or in adapting an indoor repertory work for an outdoor performance. Visual, multimedia, and installation artists, as well as street performers, amateur youth, and community artists, are all welcome to pitch their ideas.
Also, Spoke the Hub is looking for local teaching and performing artists of all genres to present an hour long workshop with a possible informal performance in local community gardens throughout the month of June. These performances will be free to the public, and selected artists will be paid through a generous grant from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
If you’re interested in applying for either event, fill out their online application, or:
Send a one page letter of interest with your proposed presentation or workshop clearly and succinctly described in the letter along with a short, one page bio/resume and mission statement. A video of the work you would like to present should also be included with your proposal, or in the case of a new, proposed site specific work, a representative work sample.
Spoke the Hub has extended the application deadline to March 15, so act soon! Send or drop off letters of interest to Spoke the Hub, LOCAL PRODUCE FESTIVAL 2013, Attn: Elise Long, 748 Union Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215.
