BLUE SKY PROJECT – Call for Proposals

Posted : 2008-10-27

BLUE SKY PROJECT SEEKS ARTIST’S PROPOSALS FOR SUMMER RESIDENCY. CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS: VISUAL ARTISTS, ARTISTS/ACTIVISTS, FILMMAKERS, WRITERS, DANCERS, MUSICIANS, THEATER PERFORMERS, AND PEOPLE WORKING IN OTHER CREATIVE MEDIA ARE ENCOURAGED TO APPLY. As a Blue Sky Project Artist-In-Residence, you will cross-pollinate with other practicing artists, collaborate with teens, expand your ideas and add artistic breadth and depth to the Dayton community. Relocated for 2009 to Ohio from our original location in Illinois, artists gather for eight weeks from mid-June to mid August at the University of Dayton, located 2 miles from downtown Dayton. Monday – Thursday, from 10-3:30 are devoted to intensive collaborations between each individual artist and a small group of six to eight local teen participants, culminating in a final exhibition. Artists-in-Residence invent the remaining structure, working together or individually on projects. Our hope is that the projects will seep out, intervene, enhance and impact the community. Your recent studio practice & new ideas should provide the foundation for your activities. Because of the collaborative nature of Blue Sky, your project must have an open-ended structure. Your project must be achievable in eight weeks, within a ,000 budget (excluding final exhibition expenses) and must engage others in its articulation and production. The rest is up to you. Previous projects have included: sculptural sound installation, self-published zine of local interviews, performance, filmmaking, photographic re-imaginings of local sites and nature interventions at the local conservation district.
