National Sawdust is seeking emerging and established Brooklyn artists to participate in our Summer Lab series. We are looking for local Brooklyn artists who are interested in using 4 hours of time in our state-of-the-art venue to develop music-based works. In addition to the 4 hours for developing said music works, each selected artist/group will receive 30 minutes of performance time on National Sawdust’s stage.
Six artists/groups will be selected to perform in the venue. The groups chosen are given 4 hours inside our space to develop a new work or work in progress based on the following criteria:
– Musical works that explore cross-cultural collaborations
– Musical works that explore interdisciplinary arts and sciences, including but not limited to architecture, film/video arts, literature, theatre, and visual arts.
– We are interested in but not requiring that works discuss current issues such as inequality in gender, race, and socio-economics in the local community.
Works that take part in the Lab showcase at the end of August will be considered for inclusion in National Sawdust’s annual Ferus Festival (January 2019).
