STooPS is excited to announce our fifth annual -
Call for Bedford-Stuyvesant Artists Interested in Connecting with Their Community
Apply at stoops.submittable.com/submit.
We are looking for all types of art including dance, theater, music, poetry/spoken word, visual art, jewelry making, textile design, film/video, etc. We’re especially looking for interactive work that invites the community to connect with the artist and/or each other. Last year’s event attracted nearly 300 attendees and, more importantly, helped create lasting relationships between community members and artists. We look forward to highlighting even more art from our neighborhood. Learn more about STooPS at stoopsbedstuy.org.
Part of our commitment is to provide artists with support and growth opportunities throughout the STooPS experience. This year, we’ve implemented a series of new engagements to enhance the artists’ experience including an Artist Orientation Webinar, Artist Development Workshop, and office hours where selected artists can connect with the STooPS team to ask questions and get feedback on their work. Additionally, all selected artists will receive a $50 stipend.
Visit www.stoopsbedstuy.org/be-an-artist to learn more about the calendar of exciting activities for STooPS Artists this season.
And be sure to check out our Frequently Asked Questions page for additional details on the STooPS experience including technical, payment, and logistical information.
STooPS Artists will also be connected to a range of resources. Artists selected for STooPS will receive updates about performance opportunities, grants, affordable housing, and much more. STooPS was developed by and for artists, and we are proud of the community that sustains us.
