The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics at New York University is now accepting applications for its fourth year of EMERGENYC, the Hemispheric New York Emerging Performers Program focused on “artivist” (artist/activist) performance.
EMERGENYC aims to support the development of “hemispheric” emerging artists through a program of workshops and events between April 20 and July 13, 2013.
We seek talented, committed and highly motivated young performers/activists/artists whose work functions as a vehicle for political expression and social change, and who examine the broad range of identities, practices and histories of the Americas (the western hemisphere, thus “hemispheric”) through genres such as spoken word, street performance, political cabaret, performance art, video performance, movement, and others.
Please forward this call to artists and activists that would be interested in the program. EMERGENYC welcomes applicants outside of the New York area, provided that they are able to be in the city during the full time of the program (April-July). The Hemispheric Institute is unable to provide housing for out-of-state participants accepted into the program.
