    AUDIBLE EMERGING PLAYWRIGHT FUND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES Audible Inc. has announced the establishment of fund up to $5 million (“Theater Fund”) dedicated to the commission and development of innovative English-language works from playwrights around the globe. The fund will support the creation of one- and two-person audio plays driven by language and voice, in keeping with Audible’s core commitment to elevating listening experiences through powerful performances of brilliantly composed words. Audible will solicit submissions for fund grants immediately, and plans to begin releasing original theater for Audible listeners in late 2017. To be considered to be a recipient of a portion of the Theater Fund and awarded a commission by Audible, please submit all of the following to AudibleTheater@audible.com: 1.

TIMELINE. Submissions are accepted year-round. Due to the number of Scripts that Audible receives, Audible is only able to accept one Script at a time from the same author and cannot consider resubmissions, including those that have been significantly revised. Thanks in advance for your patience while we process your Script; our typical response time is 6-8 months. CONDITIONS. All submissions must be the original creations of the entrants.

  • Congratulations Community Arts Grant Awardees!

    Posted on: March 1st, 2017
    The Orange County Arts Council would like to congratulate all those projects that received a Ten Year Anniversary Community Arts Grant. With only $10,000 to give away and 32 wonderful grant applications, the decisions were very difficult to make. The selection panel spent many hours discussing each application and everyone wished there was more money to give. The projects that received grants are: The Greenwood Lake Film Strip project: Developed in conjunction with the Hoboken Film Festival, the project consists of twenty (20) wooden “film-strip” cutouts, 2 feet wide by 4 feet high and mounted on stands at local businesses and area attractions in and around Greenwood Lake throughout the film festival. Each film strip was painted by a local artist with a movie related theme, such as film scenes, movie posters, collages, or any form of movie film art. Ghosts of Port Jervis: Through story compellation of carefully researched town history, historical facts and documented local ghost stories, the lives and memories of past residents of Port Jervis, will be shared. Guests will be led on foot, to various buildings and landmarks, while the storyteller acts as a guide, interweaving historical fact and ghost tales to create an entertaining, yet educational experience. Strongroom presents Jennifer Williams: Strongroom produced a public work by Jennifer Williams which is currently displayed on the empty wall on the side of 128 Liberty Street. The project opened during the Newburgh Illuminated Festival in early June and will remain up through the end of August. For this project, Jennifer was in residence in Newburgh while creating photographs that she used to digitally assemble her photo collage. This is her largest exterior public work to date. SeaChange Voyage and Floating Residency: Led by Orange County artist Kevin Buckland in association with the Mare Liberum arts collective, the 2017 SeaChange voyage supports deeper engagement of local artists in local environmental organizing through a “Floating Residency” whereby artists will join the voyage and explore river-related themes. Their artworks will be presented in a community art exhibition in Newburgh to raise awareness about the need to protect the Hudson River. The Painted Trotters of Goshen: The Painted Trotters of Goshen is a collaborative effort between the Village of Goshen and the Goshen Art League. Individual artists were given a plywood cutout of a horse which the artists painted in any style they chose. The horses are currently arraigned around the downtown Village of Goshen business district. Requiem (Newburgh): Requiem is a new theatrical work based on the poetry of Anna Akhmatova. Russian poet Anna Akhmatova began writing her poem, Requiem, during the 1930s "Reign of Terror," when Stalin arrested, executed & sent to Siberian work camps an estimated 20 million of his own people, calling them "enemies of the state.” Written over three decades, the poem wasn’t published in the USSR until 1987. This production follows this period of time in Russian history – examining it from the viewpoint of one woman left all alone who has lost both her husband and son. Encapsulate: Encapsulate is a short documentary about the unearthing of a time capsule in the Village of Warwick that has been buried for fifty years. The time capsule itself represents the community’s past, buried in the ground during the Centennial celebration during 1967. As preparations are made to bury a new time capsule, to be opened in 2067, the film deals with the commonalities in the human experience: responsibility, homecoming, mortality and legacy. Treecycle 2017: Wickham Works produced its 2nd annual Treecycle, a collaborative community art project. Treecycle was a two-day event that coincided with Earth and Arbor Day, and took place at Wickham Woodlands Manor & Pavilion in Warwick (former O.C. Correctional Facility). Seven Orange County artists/facilitators guided children and adults in the creation of sculptural trees made from up-cycled materials. These trees are currently on exhibit at various places throughout Warwick. DUSKLIT Interactive Art Bazaar: DUSKLIT is a one night art bazaar that challenges visitors to accept experience, rather than solely object, as art. Over seventy-five artists will transform the Seligmann Homestead in Sugar Loaf into a landscape of interactive 10 x 10’ installations, offering visitors the opportunity to witness, engage with, and participate in elaborate micro-environments and interdisciplinary performances, as well as to form relationships with the artists themselves. Newburgh Open Movement: Newburgh Open Movement (NOM) is a monthly dance and movement improvisation event that will take place from 1 - 4 PM at the Safe Harbors Lobby at the Ritz in the City of Newburgh on the last Saturday of every month between February and December of 2017. The event is open to all ages, backgrounds and abilities. It features expert instruction and facilitation by Ophra Wolf and live, improvised music by respected local professional musicians. Confabulation: The Notion of a Small Town: In 2017 the Village of Warwick is celebrating its Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of the Village. Confabulation is a theatrical piece based on true/real stories garnered from the community. From these stories, archetype characters will emerge forming the basis for a larger story which will be edited into a final play which will be performed during the Warwick Summer Arts Festival. Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival: The Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival is a national-level plein air (outdoor painting) event which will take place at a variety of local sites including the Newburgh Waterfront and all the heritage tourism sites along the Hudson including Nature Museum of the Hudson Highlands, Washington's Headquarters, Newburgh Landing, and Knox's Headquarters, and culminate in a large exhibit at the SUNY Orange Middletown Campus. Milkweed Poetry Journal: The mission of Milkweed Poetry Workshop (MPW) is to create a community of poets and to support and encourage expression in words – written, spoken, and otherwise. MPW seeks to honor the diverse voices of these poets by publishing a quarterly journal that showcases the poems that are being written right now in Orange County, New York. Middletown Concert Chorale: The Middletown Concert Chorale will offer multiple musical performances which typically include a major classical work and smaller choir pieces chosen from a variety of musical styles from medieval to modern -- including musicals, madrigals, spirituals, seasonal, patriotic and folk music from around the world. Performances are held at St, John's Lutheran Church in Middletown, as well as one or two other venues in Middletown or other Orange County townships such as Otisville, Montgomery and Port Jervis. Please check on the Arts Council's Facebook page to learn more about each of these great arts projects. We are excited to be working with all of our arts and cultural partners to strengthen the impact of the arts in Orange County. As the county's leader in arts services, please be in touch if you have ideas about how your organization and Orange County Arts Council can work together in the coming year.

  • Congratulations Community Arts Grant Awardees!

    Posted on: March 1st, 2017
    The Orange County Arts Council would like to congratulate all those projects that received a Ten Year Anniversary Community Arts Grant. With only $10,000 to give away and 32 wonderful grant applications, the decisions were very difficult to make. The selection panel spent many hours discussing each application and everyone wished there was more money to give. The projects that received grants are: The Greenwood Lake Film Strip project: Developed in conjunction with the Hoboken Film Festival, the project consists of twenty (20) wooden “film-strip” cutouts, 2 feet wide by 4 feet high and mounted on stands at local businesses and area attractions in and around Greenwood Lake throughout the film festival. Each film strip was painted by a local artist with a movie related theme, such as film scenes, movie posters, collages, or any form of movie film art. Ghosts of Port Jervis: Through story compellation of carefully researched town history, historical facts and documented local ghost stories, the lives and memories of past residents of Port Jervis, will be shared. Guests will be led on foot, to various buildings and landmarks, while the storyteller acts as a guide, interweaving historical fact and ghost tales to create an entertaining, yet educational experience. Strongroom presents Jennifer Williams: Strongroom produced a public work by Jennifer Williams which is currently displayed on the empty wall on the side of 128 Liberty Street. The project opened during the Newburgh Illuminated Festival in early June and will remain up through the end of August. For this project, Jennifer was in residence in Newburgh while creating photographs that she used to digitally assemble her photo collage. This is her largest exterior public work to date. SeaChange Voyage and Floating Residency: Led by Orange County artist Kevin Buckland in association with the Mare Liberum arts collective, the 2017 SeaChange voyage supports deeper engagement of local artists in local environmental organizing through a “Floating Residency” whereby artists will join the voyage and explore river-related themes. Their artworks will be presented in a community art exhibition in Newburgh to raise awareness about the need to protect the Hudson River. The Painted Trotters of Goshen: The Painted Trotters of Goshen is a collaborative effort between the Village of Goshen and the Goshen Art League. Individual artists were given a plywood cutout of a horse which the artists painted in any style they chose. The horses are currently arraigned around the downtown Village of Goshen business district. Requiem (Newburgh): Requiem is a new theatrical work based on the poetry of Anna Akhmatova. Russian poet Anna Akhmatova began writing her poem, Requiem, during the 1930s "Reign of Terror," when Stalin arrested, executed & sent to Siberian work camps an estimated 20 million of his own people, calling them "enemies of the state.” Written over three decades, the poem wasn’t published in the USSR until 1987. This production follows this period of time in Russian history – examining it from the viewpoint of one woman left all alone who has lost both her husband and son. Encapsulate: Encapsulate is a short documentary about the unearthing of a time capsule in the Village of Warwick that has been buried for fifty years. The time capsule itself represents the community’s past, buried in the ground during the Centennial celebration during 1967. As preparations are made to bury a new time capsule, to be opened in 2067, the film deals with the commonalities in the human experience: responsibility, homecoming, mortality and legacy. Treecycle 2017: Wickham Works produced its 2nd annual Treecycle, a collaborative community art project. Treecycle was a two-day event that coincided with Earth and Arbor Day, and took place at Wickham Woodlands Manor & Pavilion in Warwick (former O.C. Correctional Facility). Seven Orange County artists/facilitators guided children and adults in the creation of sculptural trees made from up-cycled materials. These trees are currently on exhibit at various places throughout Warwick. DUSKLIT Interactive Art Bazaar: DUSKLIT is a one night art bazaar that challenges visitors to accept experience, rather than solely object, as art. Over seventy-five artists will transform the Seligmann Homestead in Sugar Loaf into a landscape of interactive 10 x 10’ installations, offering visitors the opportunity to witness, engage with, and participate in elaborate micro-environments and interdisciplinary performances, as well as to form relationships with the artists themselves. Newburgh Open Movement: Newburgh Open Movement (NOM) is a monthly dance and movement improvisation event that will take place from 1 - 4 PM at the Safe Harbors Lobby at the Ritz in the City of Newburgh on the last Saturday of every month between February and December of 2017. The event is open to all ages, backgrounds and abilities. It features expert instruction and facilitation by Ophra Wolf and live, improvised music by respected local professional musicians. Confabulation: The Notion of a Small Town: In 2017 the Village of Warwick is celebrating its Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of the Village. Confabulation is a theatrical piece based on true/real stories garnered from the community. From these stories, archetype characters will emerge forming the basis for a larger story which will be edited into a final play which will be performed during the Warwick Summer Arts Festival. Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival: The Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival is a national-level plein air (outdoor painting) event which will take place at a variety of local sites including the Newburgh Waterfront and all the heritage tourism sites along the Hudson including Nature Museum of the Hudson Highlands, Washington's Headquarters, Newburgh Landing, and Knox's Headquarters, and culminate in a large exhibit at the SUNY Orange Middletown Campus. Milkweed Poetry Journal: The mission of Milkweed Poetry Workshop (MPW) is to create a community of poets and to support and encourage expression in words – written, spoken, and otherwise. MPW seeks to honor the diverse voices of these poets by publishing a quarterly journal that showcases the poems that are being written right now in Orange County, New York. Middletown Concert Chorale: The Middletown Concert Chorale will offer multiple musical performances which typically include a major classical work and smaller choir pieces chosen from a variety of musical styles from medieval to modern -- including musicals, madrigals, spirituals, seasonal, patriotic and folk music from around the world. Performances are held at St, John's Lutheran Church in Middletown, as well as one or two other venues in Middletown or other Orange County townships such as Otisville, Montgomery and Port Jervis. Please check on the Arts Council's Facebook page to learn more about each of these great arts projects. We are excited to be working with all of our arts and cultural partners to strengthen the impact of the arts in Orange County. As the county's leader in arts services, please be in touch if you have ideas about how your organization and Orange County Arts Council can work together in the coming year.

    AUDIBLE EMERGING PLAYWRIGHT FUND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES Audible Inc. has announced the establishment of fund up to $5 million (“Theater Fund”) dedicated to the commission and development of innovative English-language works from playwrights around the globe. The fund will support the creation of one- and two-person audio plays driven by language and voice, in keeping with Audible’s core commitment to elevating listening experiences through powerful performances of brilliantly composed words. Audible will solicit submissions for fund grants immediately, and plans to begin releasing original theater for Audible listeners in late 2017. To be considered to be a recipient of a portion of the Theater Fund and awarded a commission by Audible, please submit all of the following to AudibleTheater@audible.com: 1.

The Script can be in any genre and may include one-acts, musicals and solo pieces; 2. A short biography; and 3. A brief statement about why audio plays appeal to you. ELIGIBILITY. Anybody over the age of 18 may submit a Script. Employees or independent contractors, or immediate family members (spouses, domestic partners, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, and grandchildren) or those living in the same household of employees or independent contractors of Audible LLC, Amazon or any entity involved in any aspect of the Theatre Fund may not submit a Script for consideration. TIMELINE. Submissions are accepted year-round. Due to the number of Scripts that Audible receives, Audible is only able to accept one Script at a time from the same author and cannot consider resubmissions, including those that have been significantly revised. Thanks in advance for your patience while we process your Script; our typical response time is 6-8 months. CONDITIONS. All submissions must be the original creations of the entrants. By submitting a Script, each entrant represents and warrants that (a) his/her Script is his/her original creation and (b) his/her Script is the sole and exclusive property of the entrant.
