FAIRMOUNT PARK CONSERVANCY: CALL FOR ARTISTS
FOR INTERACTIVE, PERFORMANCE-BASED ART AT LOVE PARK DURING THE 2019 FRINGE
FESTIVAL (SEPT 5–22, 2019)
DEADLINE TO APPLY: MAY 6, 2019
Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation are looking
for interactive pieces that encourage audience participation to be
performed in LOVE Park (aka JFK Plaza). The selection criteria will be
weighted to emphasize that. They'd like the artists/performance to draw a
diverse audience that is representative of the city’s population.
Each selected independent artist will receive a stipend of $3,000 from
Fairmount Park Conservancy. This fee represents the full and complete
honorarium for all services rendered by artists. Fairmount Park Conservancy
will also cover cost of Fringe Festival registration.
They are looking for 3 different artists/groups who work in any of the
following modalities: (1) creative performance art; (2) dance; (3) music
performance; (4) puppetry; (5) interactive design (6) circus performance.
Each artist will perform a minimum of 3-6 performances during the Fringe
Festival. A minimum of 2 of each artist’s performances should take place on
weekdays between the hours of 11am and 7pm to take advantage of peak
visitation times and complement existing programs in the park. We are also
open to hosting a few performances on evenings and weekends.
