HEREstay Curated Rental Program: Call for Submissions

  • Deadline:
    Dec. 31, 2011, midnight
  • Location:
    HERE Arts Center, 145 Sixth Ave., New York, New York, 10013, US

Since 1993, HERE Arts Center has been one of New York’s most prolific
producing organizations, and today, it stands at the forefront of the
city’s presenters of daring new hybrid art. HERE supports
multidisciplinary work that does not fit into a conventional programming
agenda. Our aesthetic represents the independent, the innovative, and
the experimental. HERE supports the work of artists at all stages in
their careers through fully-produced works, commissions and subsidized
performance and rehearsal space. In addition, HERE’s staff provides
marketing, technical and administrative support. All work at HERE is
curated based on the strength and uniqueness of the artist’s vision.
One of our most vital services, the HEREstay Program, supports 250 guest
independent artists and groups—such as New Georges, Vampire Cowboys,
and ViBe Theater Experience (an educational arts group for underserved
urban teen girls)—and their audiences each season.
This creative curated rental program has allowed many upstart companies
and emerging artists to realize their full artistic vision on a small
budget. The program provides subsidized performance and rehearsal space,
technical assistance, and administrative support, including a fully
staffed box office. HEREstay artists can also access equipment that is
not typically available in venues our size such as video projectors,
wireless microphones, color scrollers—all for free or at subsidized
rates. We accept applications from artists all over the world for the
opportunity to show work.
