This weekend is The Brooklyn Commune Global Congress – the culminating event of our 8 month artist-driven grassroots research project into the economic dilemma of the performing arts. It has been an amazing & revelatory journey and we hope you will join us November 22-24 at The Invisible Dog Art Center located at 51 Bergen St in beautiful Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Full info here.
Saturday morning at 10:30AM we plan to start things off with a MAP Fund Impersonation Game – a mock panel where 6-10 MAP Fund applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges. Our goal is to help artists understand what things look like from the other side, and to open up a discussion about panel processes, artistic criteria and how to present your proposals.
We talked to Moira Brennan from MAP Fund and she wishes she could be there, but unfortunately is unavailable. However, Kay Takeda from LMCC, who is known for – among other things – organizing awesome panels and being a leader in professional development for artists, has graciously agreed to lead the process.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you have submitted a MAP Fund Proposal, please consider participating and sharing your project. If you have participated on a MAP Fund Panel or would just like to pretend that you have, please consider being a panelist. If you are unavailable but know someone who would be interested please feel free to forward this email and spread the word!
You can just email us directly or fill out this form
Thanks and see you this weekend!!
