Open Call for Chashama Gala 2018

Chashama is seeking artists - individuals or organizations and/or groups - for our annual Gala, scheduled for June 7, 2018 6pm - 12am.

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 send it our way. Because our avant-garde playground is ready for you!

Seeking :
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 a 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 review and book applications on a rolling basis, so please apply as soon as possible. Apply by 12pm on Friday, March 30th.

****Please Note: All artists are required to be present between the hours 5pm-12am on June 7th, 2018 and attend an orientation, Monday April 23rd at 6 pm.****
