INTER/ACTIVE ART PROJECTS | SUBMISSION DEADLINE – MAY 12, 2018
The Arts Commission is seeking proposals for INTER/ACTIVE projects that will take place during the Momentum festival in Promenade Park on September 13-15, 2018 (and possibly other Arts Commission events). We are looking for highly interactive, community-driven, collaborative works of art that are accessible to the public and civic in scope. 2017 projects involved the spectator in a variety of activities including contributing to a giant storybook, casting metal objects with a mobile foundry, a giant interactive video game and an exploration of identity. Projects will be launched at Momentum and may be asked to appear at other Arts Commission events.
