Fairmount Park Conservancy: Call for Artists
FOR INTERACTIVE, PERFORMANCE-BASED ART AT LOVE PARK DURING THE 2019 FRINGE FESTIVAL
DEADLINE TO APPLY: MAY 6, 2019
Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation are looking for interactive pieces that encourage audience participation to be performed in LOVE Park (aka JFK Plaza). The selection criteria will be weighted to emphasize that. We’d like the artists/ performance to draw a diverse audience that is representative of the city’s population.
Each selected independent artist will receive a stipend of $3,000 from Fairmount Park Conservancy. This fee represents the full and complete honorarium for all services rendered by artists. Fairmount Park Conservancy will also cover cost of Fringe Festival registration.
We are looking for 3 different artists/groups who work in any of the following modalities: (1) creative performance art; (2) dance; (3) music performance; (4) puppetry; (5) interactive design (6) circus performance.
Each artist will perform a minimum of 3-6 performances during the Fringe Festival (September 5-22). A minimum of 2 of each artist’s performances should take place on weekdays between the hours of 11am and 7pm to take advantage of peak visitation times and complement existing programs in the park. We are also open to hosting a few performances on evenings and weekends.
