Open Scene is seeking four artists to lead arts-based workshops and dialogues for twelve youth (ages 16-24) and ten adult stakeholders in Urbana, IL. The deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. CST on December 5, 2016.
Open Scene is a partnership between the City of Urbana and the Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center (UCIMC), which aims to create a plan for reclaiming the city’s center through arts-based activities that directly incorporate the experiences of youth. In spring 2017, each selected artist or artist group will lead a weekend “intensive” with participants to explore themes of social justice and/or community development through an art discipline. Activities will begin on Friday evening and end on Sunday afternoon on designated weekends.
This opportunity is open to all professional artists, age 18 or older, residing in the United States. All artistic disciplines, genres, styles, and media will be considered. Selected artists will receive a total payment of $3,000 for artist fees, transportation to and from Urbana, food, and lodging.
Submissions will be evaluated based on demonstration of artistic quality; experience in leading engagement activities, especially for youth and marginalized communities; and appropriateness of method for inclusive, youth-centered, public events.
