STooPS is looking for artists of all mediums and genres to share engaging, site-specific work this summer on various STooPS throughout Bed-Stuy.
We are looking for all types of art including dance, theater, music, poetry/spoken word, visual art, jewelry making, textile design, film/video, etc. We’re especially looking for interactive work that invites the community to connect with the artist and/or each other.
Last year’s event attracted nearly 300 attendees and, more importantly, helped create lasting relationships between community members and artists. We look forward to highlighting even more art from our neighborhood. Learn more about STooPS at stoopsbedstuy.org.
STooPS Artists will also be connected to a range of resources. After four years of producing and curating events throughout Bed-Stuy, our team has established many partnerships that support artists and neighbors alike. Artists selected for STooPS will be invited to ongoing performances, and receive e-mail updates about performance opportunities, grants, affordable housing, and much more. STooPS was developed by and for artists, and we are proud of the community that sustains us.
Please note that all performance pieces must be no more than 10 minutes in length. All artists will be paid a modest stipend for their participation.
To apply, artists must submit a bio, artistic resume, work samples, and a proposed description of the work they intend to share using the online application form by April 22, 2016. Paper applications are also available upon request.
Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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).
