The inaugural project period for Our Space will run June – August 2020 and conclude with a film screening and panel discussion in October 2020. The artist call application closes on Thursday, May 31 at 11:59p. Artists will be selected by a jury of POC/I artists and TCMA staff.
Selected artists will work in teams of two to create and execute a performance based on a community story in a Saint Paul public space. All performances, including the development process for each performance, will be professionally documented by photo and video.
Each artist selected will be paid a fee of $3,000 for their participation in Our Space for the project period. TCMA will cover all cost of project materials within a budget to be announced at the Our Space artist orientation.
Our Space artists will also receive professional video and photo documentation of their performances, and a two-day intensive public art training with Forecast Public Art.
As part of the project budget, Our Space artists will have access to consultation/assistance from creative specialists related to their project vision. Specialist areas may include but are not limited to:
• Costume design
• Set/prop design and/or fabrication
• Lighting design
• Sound design
Artists will not be responsible for recruiting their creative specialist.
