Indianapolis, IN, Unknown
The Arts Council of Indianapolis, in partnership with IndyGo and Square Cat Vinyl, seeks Central Indiana-based musicians to perform at selected IndyGo bus stops from September 2-7, 2019. This week marks the opening week for the Red Line Rapid Transit bus line, and the debut of route improvements throughout the IndyGo system.
COMPENSATION: Selected musicians and groups will receive $300 for a 60-minute set of all original music.
ELIGIBILITY: Musicians must be able to legally work in the United States. All genres of music are welcome. Musicians based in Marion County will receive selection preference.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, June 2, 2019
LOCATIONS: Performance spots will be located along the new Red Line Rapid Transit route or at major bus line transfer points, near a station or, where possible, at the station but occupying a small footprint. The performance locations will be different for each day of the initiative.
MEDIA/PROMOTIONS: Artists will be interviewed and promoted on social media of IndyGo, Square Cat Vinyl, Arts Council, and partners. Printed materials will be used to promote event, on bus marketing, signage at all stations, area businesses, and through all e-communication via IndyGo will be included.
SELECTION PROCESS: Representatives from the Arts Council of Indianapolis, IndyGo, Square Cat Vinyl, and the musician community (without a conflict of interest and with expertise in a wide variety of genres) will review the submitted profiles of interested musicians and will identify artists to fill each available time slot, plus a small group of alternates.
SELECTION CRITERIA: The goal of the project is to highlight the wide variety of excellent music available in the city. We anticipate selecting musicians who are reliable performers of high artistic quality in their respective genres, and who are enthusiastic about the public transit changes coming to Indianapolis.
