OPEN CALL FOR NYC-BASED PERFORMING ARTISTS
Performers will be selected via this Open Call. All LGBTQ musicians, dancers, and performing artists based in New York City may submit applications. Latino and other immigrant and minority artists who self-identify as LGBTQ are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications must be submitted over email, and will consist of:
- A statement of interest and description of proposed performance (200 words maximum)
- Biographical Details (300 words maximum)
- Work samples (three maximum). Artists may submit mp3, jpg, or video. Work samples may be included either as an attachment to the email, or via a URL where they can be accessed and viewed, such as a YouTube or website link.
Applications must be sent by email by to Flushing Town Hall’s Deputy Director Sami Abu Shumays at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15, 2019. Please use the subject line: LGBTQ OPEN CALL 2019. Flushing Town Hall subsequently will review all applications and select three to five performers, who will be notified by April 14. All artists will receive a modest honorarium.
