Each year, National Sawdust seeks emerging and established Brooklyn artists to participate in our Summer Lab series. Local Brooklyn artists who are selected by our search committee use four hours of time in our state-of-the-art venue to develop music-based works. In addition to the four hours for developing said music works, each selected artist/group receives 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 new criteria each year, and successful performances are considered for future programming in the venue.
Applications for Summer 2018 are currently closed. Winners and their performance dates will be announced soon.
