In 2017 Sidewalk is exploring ideas of social upheaval leading to progressive change, revolution, rebellion and
radical social movements. If you apply to Sidewalk Festival this year, your work should be along these lines.
We don’t use any typical stages. All performances take place in one of 5 amazing spots in and around Artist Village. You can check out images and basic stats of those spaces below. We love to present original work that is made specifically for the space. We also favor participatory work and artists that can INTERACT with people on the ground level.
We are building on our emphasis of site-specific work by integrating design for performance. We’re asking the question, “How can Sidewalk Festival be a place for architects, artists, designers and residents to explore new forms of interactivity and performance that is relevant to the communities we serve?”
We are looking for projects that:
- Connect site specific work to the neighborhood in a meaningful way.
- Are engaging and interactive.
- Incorporate a sense of play, fun, and wonder.
