Fall 2016 Sponsored Artists Program – Call for Artists
Applications are now open for High Concept Labs’ (HCL) Fall 2016 Sponsored Artists Program, which will run from September 1 through December 31, 2016.
Deadline: 15 Jun 2016
HCL’s Fall 2016 Sponsored Artists Program is designed to promote the growth of artists and their work through the donation of customizable, no-cost support services including:
- Rehearsal, workshop and performance space
- Administrative and production assistance
- Communications and design support
- Audience development and media outreach
- Artistic consultation
- Photo and video documentation
- Strategic networking for partnerships, funding, and creative collaborators
- Teaching and workshop opportunities
- Participation in HCL Artist Critique sessions
- Field-based or cross-disciplinary mentorship
Projects are chosen twice a year and last for a period of four months. Each season is curated to represent emerging and established artists from a range of artistic disciplines. We sponsor three paths of development based on different intentions for the end-result of the project.
Successful applicants to the Fall 2016 Sponsored Artists Program are emerging or established artists or collectives with a history of successful work (need not be in same discipline as application project) and with clear goals for their residency. Accepted artists are chosen to represent an array of artistic practices by members of HCL’s staff and Artistic Advisory Council.
Please note: no direct financial support is offered to Sponsored Artists, and if you intend to participate in the program but do not live in Chicago, you will be responsible for your housing and travel arrangements.
High Concept Labs is an arts service organization based in Mana Contemporary Chicago. HCL supports artists and facilitates dialogue between artists, audiences, and staff. This increases access and transparency to the artistic process and fosters transformational experiences in an environment of experimentation and discovery.
