Open Call Commission Program
New York, NY 10001
Born out of The Shed’s commitment to supporting early-career artists and a diverse range of voices and experiences, the Open Call program selects, fosters, and presents new work from NYC artists who have not yet received major support. It embraces NYC’s diversity of emerging talent in its many forms—including artistic medium, race, ethnicity, age, identity, physical ability, and more.
The Shed will support selected projects with a commissioning fee of up to $15,000 per artist or collective. Participants will be selected this summer by leaders in their fields, including other artists, cultural programmers, academics, and members of The Shed’s staff.
The deadline for applications is May 31, 2020.
