Open Call for Creative Experience Makers

Submission Deadline: Open Call
We want our Art Walks to create a 'spectacle', something so big or so interesting or so powerful that visitors to the district walk away saying 'I want to come back'. Creators, makers, and artists - we need your help! These spectacle experiences could take the form of interactive art, large-scale temporary sculptures, perrformance art, video installation, or other. Your imagination is the only limitation. We love projects that invite audience participation, are immersive and/or interactive, and promote curiosity and spectacle. Approved Art Walk projects will receive up to a $500 stipend to complete their work.
