Last year’s event attracted nearly 300 attendees and supported lasting relationships between community members and artists. Given our local focus, preference will be given to artists who are residents of or demonstrate connections to Bed-Stuy.
Visual artists should be prepared to engage audiences and discuss their work. Performance work should be no more than 10 minutes.
Part of our commitment to artists is to provide support and growth opportunities before, during and after the annual STooPS event. To support this vision, we expect all artists who are selected to commit to the following dates:
All selected artists will be paid a stipend of $50. Collaborating artists and collectives will receive no more than $150, or payment for up to three (3) artists.
Paper applications are also available upon request. Please call (347) 927-8892.
Artists will be notified no later than May 5, 2016 and will have seven (7) days to confirm their participation.
The annual STooPS event is made possible by public funds from the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, both administered in Kings County by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
