Call for Arts performers at City Arts Fest 2012

Deadline: Friday, May 18, 2012, 6:00 pm

Submit to: RFP@CityArtsFest.com

The 2012 CAF Arts Program seeks proposals from individuals and groups to perform or present art experiences of all kinds in secret and unexpected locations in the vicinity of downtown Seattle, Capitol Hill and SoDo during the City Arts Festival October 17 – 20, 2012.

CAF seeks proposals/partnerships that align with the festival’s goal to encourage residents to see/experience their city in new way over the course of the festival. We envision providing audiences a series of creative, arts-based, interdisciplinary/multi-sensory, experiential events in unexpected and/or secret locations, outside of traditional arts/music venues. CAF will accept 5-10 proposals to co-produce and present during the week/weekend of the festival. These experiences will be ticketed and available and packaged under a new City Arts Festival Art Festival pass. Passholders will be eligible to experience up to 5 of these experiences as part of their pass, and receive other festival benefits.

All ideas are welcome, but some examples include:

  • A 30 minute micro-drama, that caters to only 15 people at a time, in an empty apartment in Captiol Hill, where the location is disclosed the morning of the event via text/email to the patrons.
  • A progressive performance/scavenger hunt, for 6 people at a time, who meet at a starting point, then follow clues and coordinates to find different live art experiences/secret installations around Capitol Hill.
  • A music/theater/dance show or installation, performed site-specific, in an unexpected location like a grocery store, parking lot, roof top or bar.
