Fairgrounds Call-for-Proposals

Opportunity knocks! This will be a great chance to showcase your work in a public space near the Frankford Ave Arts Corridor. This is open to artists with a plan and the motivation to engage the public through live arts.

What: Site-specific preformances for the Fairgrounds outdoor art space

When: Saturday, September 15, 1pm - Rain Date, September 16

Deadline for proposals is August 24, 9pm.

We are seeking performers and performance groups in the Philly region for an event to be held September 15, 2012. The Fairgrounds is an on-going project, helmed by Little Berlin, to convert a vacant lot into a community space for arts, workshops, fairs, and gatherings. The preferred performances are site-specific since this will be held on the Fairgrounds lot and thus has special requirements to be considered. The site will have a house sculpture and raised garden beds, otherwise it is an open space. This event is open to the myriad forms of live art, and the main limitations are the logistics of the site to be performed and a duration of 20 minutes. However, durational performances can be discussed. We are seeking 4 peformers or performance groups for this event.

Proposals should include: a brief biography (of performer or group), technical and installation specifications, duration, synopsis of performance, and title and group name if applicable.

Questions and proposals can be sent to berlin.little@gmail.com.

Thanks! Hope to hear from y’all soon!
