Eligibility:

Calling all playwrights! It's your chance to submit to the 2022 Veterans' 10 Minute Playwrighting Contest at Salem State University. Deadline to apply is April 30- learn more about the requirements here: https://bit.ly/3foZkmb

Designated a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs, a Top College and University by Military Advanced Education, and a Best for Vets College by Military Times, Salem State values our military connected students and their families and the sacrifices they have made for our country. Salem State is committed to supporting Veterans’ voices on and off campus. The arts create unique and powerful opportunities for individuals and groups to share experiences and constructive dialogue. As such, Salem State is proud to announce its third annual Veterans Playwriting contest which will culminate in staged readings of selected plays in November 2022.

All playwrights, regardless of military affiliation, are invited to enter Salem State University’s 10-Minute Playwriting Contest. However, preference will be given to those with a direct military connection. This includes active-duty military, reservists, National Guard, Veterans, and direct family of any of these.

The theme of the play should directly touch on military service and/or how military service affects a community. The contest and festival look to recognize and celebrate those that have served and currently serve. We are looking to bring together a variety of voices exploring both the challenges and the victories and positive influences that Veterans have on our community.

Judges will select finalists, whose plays will be part of a series of staged readings in November 2021. Our first annual festival was held in the Callan Studio Theatre at SSU in September 2019. This three-night festival was a huge success with eight staged plays, 4 professional directors, 20 professional and student actors, packed audiences, and vibrant community conversations. Our second annual festival was held virtually during the 10 days leading up to Veterans day 2020 with one play released each day culminating in a community zoom conversation with the playwrights, actors, and directors.

THEME
WITHIN- A certain poetry exists within the moments of refuge, a confusing place where we have experienced absence in a whole new way. This profound moment in our lives has brought about a unique manner of living.

Security, intimacy, sanctuary, and the passage of time have all shifted to a deeper meaning. Beauty in the ordinary and intimate space that we have either accepted or resisted—but forced to surrender, nevertheless. Show us your sense WITHIN the quiet, WITHIN the asylum, WITHIN the retreat.

The R.E.A.L.M.S. institute

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Wicked Amusements is calling all visual and installation artists to participate in their newest project, The REALMS Institute - an immersive art and recreation experience with rotating exhibits/adventures that will be part of Malden’s nascent Gaming District.

 

Our initial installment will be an interpretation of the mini-golf model, so we are looking for proposals with amazing designs and sculptural elements that can serve either as full golf holes themselves or as part of the broader scenic ambience. Creators with experience working in large scale and kinetics are particularly encouraged to respond.

 

Proposals will be accepted on a bid/commision basis, so you have a hand in determining your compensation.

 

Some broader information follows below, but if your curiosity is piqued, contact Jason Ries, Project Manager at info@wickedamusements (subject: REALMS proposal) asap.  

Include CV and any digital portfolio access to give us a feel of your work.

If you have an idea in mind, you can suggest it in the body of the message but you are also welcome to simply express general interest at this time.

 

We will then reach out to schedule Open Shop info sessions at our Woburn production facility, to be held in early August.  These meetings will be the best opportunity to have more detailed conversations about the scope, timeline and submission process.

 

GENERAL CONCEPT

Regardless of the ongoing exhibit, visitors to “The Institute” will immediately be projected into a world of pulp pseudo-science and tongue-in-cheek odes to the age of atomic experimentation.  If you can imagine a mashup of the look of Bioshock and the tone of Portal squeezed through the lens of Buckaroo Banzai, you’re on the right track.

 

Within that framework, we are open to a full range of theming ideas, with a preference for originality and playfulness in design. 

 

MATERIALS and FEASIBILITY

Media may include (but is not limited to) metals, video, textiles, and automation (pneumatics, electronics). Real-world construction requirements and ability to endure several months of play will be a consideration. However, if we love your concept, we may be able to work with you to design it into a realistically playable hole

 

ELIGIBILITY 

While submissions from creatives in the Boston metro area will receive preference, we are open to inquiries from anywhere and any background (i.e. scenic designers, architects, electrical engineers, mini golf lovers, video artists, etc.).  Collaborations are welcome and there is no limit to submissions, though each design proposal requires a separate submission.
