Open Call for chashama Gala

Open Call (Ding Ding Ding!) 
Seeking Ambient or Interactive Performances and Installations
chashama Gala 2017 

chashama seeking artists--individuals or organizations and/or groups--for our annual fundraiser Gala, taking place June 8, 2017, 6pm -12 am

This year’s theme is ‘Art Is Everywhere,’ so channel your inner Dr. Seuss because we “like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells!” Every chashama Gala means entering the realm of artists.
Everything and anything goes (as long as it's safe...)! We have an entire floor of an office building waiting for artists to claim sections and transform it. The space will be open to you to create and transform a month in advance. YOU, as the artist, can decide which section fits your mission most snugly. We encourage all artists to submit as innovative and wild proposals as they can dream up. So pull out that project you never dreamed you would find an occasion/space/audience for and sent it our way. Because our avant-garde playground is ready for you! 
  • Performance Artists--wandering/prowling or stationary
  • Installation Pieces--overflowing with your subconscious
  • Video Projections--ambient and quiet or brusque and noisy
  • Sound Artists--does this sound like you? 
Want to make a sleepy meditation room? Put on a meandering performance of Othello? Open a pop-up candy shop? Hold court at miniature table with a full tea-time spread? It is entirely up to you on how you would engage an audience of 800+ guests. 

To Apply: email with the subject "Interactive Performer/Installation Application." Please include a brief paragraph describing your proposed performance or installation in the body of the email. Attach any images and/or links to videos or website that best illustrate your work or proposal. We will be reviewing and booking applications as they come in. Apply by 12pm on Friday, March 31st

****Please Note: All artists are required to be present between the hours 5pm-12am on June 8th, 2017 and  attend an orientation, Thursday, May 25th at 6 pm.*****
