I recently received an email from Shunpike detailing two great opportunities for public art and performance.
The first, and one I plan on pursuing, hopefully with The Lonely Kazoo as part of vacant space tour, is Storefronts Seattle. The pilot program is currently focusing on empty retail spaces in Chinatown and the ID, and calls for both artists in residence and performances/installations. Applications are due July 26th.
The next opportunity is Arts Crush, "a month-long festival (October) that connects artists and audiences with invigorating new experiences at hundreds of events across the region." As an extension of Live Theatre Week, a different discipline will be highlighted each week. This project is managed by Theatre Puget Sound and applications are due July 23rd.
The latter calls for pop-up performances in various places, so if you have any ideas for the lot, this might be a great way to facilitate them. As always, leave a comment or send me an email if there is something you'd like to pursue on the lot.
