The Arsht Center for the Performing Arts wants you to submit proposals for the Miami Made program, which has been supporting the work of local performance artists since 2005. Artists interested in expanding boundaries by creating, writing, composing, or choreographing a new work that may be presented as a workshop during the 2010-2011 Miami Made Weekend are being encouraged to apply now.
Over the past five years, works in all disciplines have been selected for various stages of development. It goes like this:
â€¢Professional development opportunities will be made available for all of the submissions and is recommended for interested applicants.
â€¢The Arsht Center will select several projects for further review, which will result in a second round review of the project, where more fully developed concepts will be made and commissions awarded.
â€¢In addition to the above, the Arsht Center is seeking two to four projects to be work-shopped in March of 2011 as part of the Incubator program, as well as one to two scripts to be read as part of the Out Loud sessions.
Chosen projects will be funded in stages, starting anywhere from $50 for professional development to $2,000-$5,000 dollars for fully commissioned works. Sums up Shiller, “Commissioning and producing new work contributes to a thriving artistic community, the hallmark of any world-class city.”
The proposal deadline is Friday, JUNE 4, 2010 at 5 p.m. For guidelines, please go to www.arshtcenter.org/miamimade or contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 786-468-2094.
