VIRTUALLY BAAD!’s Dance Compilation Concert
Boogie Down Dance Series 2020 – BAAD!
CALL FOR ARTISTS!Virtually BAAD!’s Dance Compilation Concert
Saturday, May 23, 2020 | 8PM
BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance is seeking choreographers inspired to VIRTUALLY present their dance work for a shared dance concert. This concert will present 8 choreographers' 5 to 7 minutes of work for Virtually BAAD! on ZOOM.
Your performance can be influenced by the space you are quarantined in and/or what’s been keeping your Boogie Down shoes moving & grooving during these times. Strongly encouraged that you utilize your functioning devices with camera/microphone. Thinking outside of the box is always encouraged.
Let us know which track(s) you will be using and what you envision on presenting. Our goal is to program the evening so that each performance is right after the other with continuous music playing like a gapless album, experienced virtually.
The artist fee is $125 per choreographer. Interested? Email Programming Associate, Gerard Minaya, at email@example.com, please also Cc Deputy Director, Marcus Gualberto, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 15.
FROM THE FOLKS AT IABD:
January 10, 1995, Joan Myers Brown, Founder/Executive Artistic Director of PHILADANCO! published the Directory of Choreographers for Black Dance Companies. At the time, this one-of-a-kind publication was in response to the frequent question for information about “Black choreographers who work with Black dancers or predominantly Black dance companies." In the same spirit of this publication, IABD wants to hear from you and know who you are.
As the Association continues to grow and expand, part of IABD's vision is to bring visibility to its community. We can't think of a better way to maintain this awareness than to begin the enhancement of our existing dance directory. Help us to shift the narrative about the lack of Black choreographers, dance schools and studios. We know you exist.
WE ARE SEEKING BLACK CHOREOGRAPHERS AND BLACK DANCE SCHOOLS/ STUDIOS FOR INCLUSION IN OUR DIRECTORY. Don't worry this is only the beginning, we will be conducting calls in other areas as well.

Announcing HireArtists.org, a New Marketplace Built to Support Artists in Response to Unprecedented Economic Crisis in the Cultural Sector
Commission-Free Platform Is a Place for Artists to Sell Services Both Practical and Creative, Earning Income During COVID-19 Pandemic
A direct, entrepreneurial, and creative response to the unprecedented economic crisis facing the cultural sector, HireArtists.org envisions a way to activate and support the myriad talents of a vibrant artistic community currently in isolation with the rest of the world. The commission-free marketplace allows accomplished, dedicated practitioners from across the arts to monetize their knowledge and offer services both creative and practical, including visual art and performances, classes and coaching, and assistance with everyday or professional tasks such as personal organizing, IT help, video editing, and more.
COVID-19 impact surveys from the end of March underscore the current fragility of the artistic ecosystem; as of March 25, a sampling of 33 independent producers projected revenue losses upwards of $5 million; collectively this group employs or provides paid contracts to 1,195 independent artists and 75 cultural workers. As early as March 17, freelance artists were reporting an average of $7,021,88 of canceled freelance work, a sum that has almost certainly risen substantially in recent weeks.
HireArtists.org is the brainchild of producer-curator Vallejo Gantner, creative director Alex Reeves, theater artist and manager Erica Schnitzer, philanthropist Chet Kerr, and IBM Blockchain Chief Storyteller James Dennin.

We’re seeking proposals for the second edition of Open Call, a large-scale commissioning program for early-career NYC-based artists. Please share with your artist friends! The deadline for applications is May 31, 2020.
During this time of great uncertainty, art endures. In our city and across the globe, people are looking for ways to cope, commune, be heard, reinvigorate and express themselves, and so much more. Despite the upheaval, it’s important that we support the creative spirit of our communities and forge a path forward.
Born out of The Shed’s commitment to supporting early-career artists and a diverse range of voices and experiences, our 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. Find out more here
