  • Call for Artists: Community Chalk Project

    Posted on: May 22nd, 2017 | Deadline Date: June 2nd, 2017
    This year, in partnership with the Orange County Arts Council, the Trauma Institute is proposing to collaborate with local artists on a community outreach art project. Looking for artists who are interested in working with community members on a collaborative art project. The artists will be using chalk to create large, communal work of art(s) in public spaces throughout the county at facilities where at risk populations have been identified such as: the County Jail, Department of Social Services Buildings, Probation, and the Courthouse etc. Through the use of art, accessible material such as chalk and a shared group experience, the objective of this project is to encourage our at risk persons, undergoing stressful experiences such as social services or the legal system to have an opportunity to be playful in a space that is not often seen as playful, and to provide them with an experience that will make them feel good about themselves. This exercise shouldencourage diversity, collaboration, and ultimately, empathy for each other. There will be two artists per site and they will be providing three hour sessions, encouraging the public to co-create a work of art(s). We are looking for artists who are friendly and personable and who would take it in stride if people became rude (eg; drawing pornographic things). The artists will be paid $200 each for their time and talent. Artists will receive 1 to 1 ½ hours of sensitivity training prior to the public sessions by members of the Trauma Institute. This training will be offered at no cost to the artists. Dates will be set by the Trauma Institute and artists, with a rain date. Artists are to submit a proposal for a site specific chalk project. Proposal should include a description of how the group will work together as well as possible designs for the project.

    Spanning the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and most of Florida Bay, Everglades National Park is the only subtropical wilderness in North America. It is known for its rich wildlife, particularly large wading birds, and it is the only place in the world where both alligators and crocodiles coexist. The Everglades National Park artist-in-residence program offers artists the opportunity to live and work in this unique environment for one calendar month. The works completed during or following the residency, will contribute to public understanding and appreciation of Everglades National Park. These works will represent and resonate with the Everglades for present and future generations, giving park visitors and the general public an opportunity to see our heritage through the filter of the artists. Each AIRIE Fellow thus becomes an “ambassador” of the Everglades in the world.

  • NYC Offering $2 Million to Promote Diversity in Theatre Management

    Posted on: March 23rd, 2016
    http://www.playbill.com/article/exclusive-nyc-offering-2-million-to-promote-diversity-in-theatre-management Responding to a January 2015 report that highlighted a lack of racial diversity in New York arts groups, New York City announced March 16 that it has allocated $2 million to the city's theatre groups to support "a more inclusive theatre community." Guidelines are being sent out to more than 1,000 arts groups and individuals in the five boroughs of New York, seeking applicants for the funds, according to Ryan Max of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Specifically, the grants are being offered to provide training for production and technical personnel such as stage managers; stagehands; costumers; sound and lighting technicians; administrative and management personnel such as company managers; general managers; press agents; development, marketing, advertising and digital media staff; union administrators; and non-performing artistic personnel such as directors, designers, playwrights, composers, lyricists and casting agents. Other categories of theatre management are also eligible. The grants are designed "to expand access to professional positions in the theater and the breadth of people prepared to hold these positions and advance in this field" by promoting "the development and training of non-performing theater professionals, with a focus on engaging diverse participants." Individual grants will range from $50,000 to $250,000, out of a total pool of $2 million. The grant period will cover the 18 months from January 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018, and proposals must cover activities during that time period. However, existing programs that continue into that period will be eligible to apply.

  • Call for Artists: Community Chalk Project

    Posted on: May 22nd, 2017 | Deadline Date: June 2nd, 2017
    This year, in partnership with the Orange County Arts Council, the Trauma Institute is proposing to collaborate with local artists on a community outreach art project. Looking for artists who are interested in working with community members on a collaborative art project. The artists will be using chalk to create large, communal work of art(s) in public spaces throughout the county at facilities where at risk populations have been identified such as: the County Jail, Department of Social Services Buildings, Probation, and the Courthouse etc. Through the use of art, accessible material such as chalk and a shared group experience, the objective of this project is to encourage our at risk persons, undergoing stressful experiences such as social services or the legal system to have an opportunity to be playful in a space that is not often seen as playful, and to provide them with an experience that will make them feel good about themselves. This exercise shouldencourage diversity, collaboration, and ultimately, empathy for each other. There will be two artists per site and they will be providing three hour sessions, encouraging the public to co-create a work of art(s). We are looking for artists who are friendly and personable and who would take it in stride if people became rude (eg; drawing pornographic things). The artists will be paid $200 each for their time and talent. Artists will receive 1 to 1 ½ hours of sensitivity training prior to the public sessions by members of the Trauma Institute. This training will be offered at no cost to the artists. Dates will be set by the Trauma Institute and artists, with a rain date. Artists are to submit a proposal for a site specific chalk project. Proposal should include a description of how the group will work together as well as possible designs for the project. Submissions link is: https://orangecountynyartscouncil.submittable.com/submit/83784/call-for-artists-chalk-project. http://www.orangecountygov.com/traumainstitute

    http://www.playbill.com/article/exclusive-nyc-offering-2-million-to-promote-diversity-in-theatre-management Responding to a January 2015 report that highlighted a lack of racial diversity in New York arts groups, New York City announced March 16 that it has allocated $2 million to the city's theatre groups to support "a more inclusive theatre community." Guidelines are being sent out to more than 1,000 arts groups and individuals in the five boroughs of New York, seeking applicants for the funds, according to Ryan Max of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. Specifically, the grants are being offered to provide training for production and technical personnel such as stage managers; stagehands; costumers; sound and lighting technicians; administrative and management personnel such as company managers; general managers; press agents; development, marketing, advertising and digital media staff; union administrators; and non-performing artistic personnel such as directors, designers, playwrights, composers, lyricists and casting agents. Other categories of theatre management are also eligible. The grants are designed "to expand access to professional positions in the theater and the breadth of people prepared to hold these positions and advance in this field" by promoting "the development and training of non-performing theater professionals, with a focus on engaging diverse participants." Individual grants will range from $50,000 to $250,000, out of a total pool of $2 million. The grant period will cover the 18 months from January 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018, and proposals must cover activities during that time period. However, existing programs that continue into that period will be eligible to apply.

  • AIRIE Residency in Everglades

    Posted on: April 25th, 2016
    Spanning the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and most of Florida Bay, Everglades National Park is the only subtropical wilderness in North America. It is known for its rich wildlife, particularly large wading birds, and it is the only place in the world where both alligators and crocodiles coexist. The Everglades National Park artist-in-residence program offers artists the opportunity to live and work in this unique environment for one calendar month. The works completed during or following the residency, will contribute to public understanding and appreciation of Everglades National Park. These works will represent and resonate with the Everglades for present and future generations, giving park visitors and the general public an opportunity to see our heritage through the filter of the artists. Each AIRIE Fellow thus becomes an “ambassador” of the Everglades in the world.

  • Call for Artists: Community Chalk Project

    Posted on: May 22nd, 2017 | Deadline Date: June 2nd, 2017
    This year, in partnership with the Orange County Arts Council, the Trauma Institute is proposing to collaborate with local artists on a community outreach art project. Looking for artists who are interested in working with community members on a collaborative art project. The artists will be using chalk to create large, communal work of art(s) in public spaces throughout the county at facilities where at risk populations have been identified such as: the County Jail, Department of Social Services Buildings, Probation, and the Courthouse etc. Through the use of art, accessible material such as chalk and a shared group experience, the objective of this project is to encourage our at risk persons, undergoing stressful experiences such as social services or the legal system to have an opportunity to be playful in a space that is not often seen as playful, and to provide them with an experience that will make them feel good about themselves. This exercise shouldencourage diversity, collaboration, and ultimately, empathy for each other. There will be two artists per site and they will be providing three hour sessions, encouraging the public to co-create a work of art(s). We are looking for artists who are friendly and personable and who would take it in stride if people became rude (eg; drawing pornographic things). The artists will be paid $200 each for their time and talent. Artists will receive 1 to 1 ½ hours of sensitivity training prior to the public sessions by members of the Trauma Institute. This training will be offered at no cost to the artists. Dates will be set by the Trauma Institute and artists, with a rain date. Artists are to submit a proposal for a site specific chalk project. Proposal should include a description of how the group will work together as well as possible designs for the project.
