Out & About - Call for Artists!

Out & About - Call for Artists!

Posted by: Open Space
As part of Open Space’s Out & About program, we are seeking local artists to show-and-tell their work to audiences at our off-site Studio, located at 750 Fairfield Rd. We’re looking for artists interested in giving talks, demonstrations, and/or interactions with the public throughout the summer months, June and July.

Is there something you want to try with the support of an audience?

Do you want to demonstrate or deconstruct a part of your artistic process?

Have you discovered something in your research that you want people to know about?

Artists will have access to the following equipment/amenities:

Xerox machine, sound equipment, monitors, sink, mini fridge. We can offer technical support with the available equipment we have onsite. Audiences will be small as space is limited. Selected artists will be offered a CARFAC half-day rate $362 (2 hours of prep work, 2 hours of being in the Studio). Open Space’s Programming Committee will select artists based on feasibility and capacity within the Studio.

Your application should include the following:

- Your Name
- Contact Information
- 250-500 words of your proposed idea and how you will engage with the audience
- Social media links, website, or photos of your work
- Identify equipment needs

Submit your application as a pdf to: [email protected]

For more information, please contact: [email protected]
