Calls and Opportunities
We invite you to explore and apply to the open artist calls and community opportunities with Roswell Arts Fund.
Corridors Public Art Festival - Extended Performer Call
Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell, Georgia invite artists and teams to submit portfolios for consideration for an exciting temporary public art festival.
About the Festival:
A corridor is a link; a space that connects two points of interest. Our corridors connect our natural, historic, and cultural assets. These spaces are in-between, meant to be a place for travelling, occasionally gathering, but always moving. This project looks to elevate and feature one of these corridors; to transform it into a visual and performing celebration for the summer months of 2023. How do we celebrate this river, road, and path? How do we celebrate these spaces that are just as important to Roswell as the destinations they facilitate?
Kicking off June 2023, a stretch of greenspace, trail, and road between Roswell Underpass Park and Riverside Park will be transformed into a visual and performing arts celebration.
Roswell Arts Fund is briefly reopening our call for artists. RAF is seeking performing artists to be a part of the first inaugural Corridors Festival!
If you are a performer and interested in submitting your work for consideration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with 3-5 samples of work (links are preferred) and a brief artist/statement or bio. Budgets for the work and performance schedule will be negotiated after selection. The type of work displayed may be movement/dance, music, puppetry, installation, interactive, or anything suitable for public exhibition. The work may be new or previously existing.
Deadline to Apply: Tuesday, March 14, 2023
Community Call: Apply to be a part of a Roswell Arts Fund Public Art Selection Panel
Have you ever looked at Sentience in the Heart of Canton Street or Ask the Fish at Don White or the Ribbon bike racks at Riverside Park and wondered, “Who decided to put that there?” Answer: a selection panel made up of community members just like you!
The Public Art Program is seeking interested community members, artists, and arts professionals who live or work in Roswell to be involved in this exciting process*.
Each Selection Panel is comprised of a minimum of eight voting members with additional members added depending on the scope of the project. It is the role of the voting panelists to make decisions as a group concerning the final selection of the artist or artist team.
Roswell Arts Fund is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all our programs, initiatives, and processes. For this reason, we request demographic information as it is important that we ensure a diversity of voices are represented in our programs and decision-making committees. Thank you for sharing information about yourself.
*Participation in this survey does not guarantee you will be asked to serve on a selection panel.
