Free fundraising/strategy consultation for artists





Are you trying to raise money for an ambitious artistic project? Got an awesome idea but don’t know where to begin? Trying to make sense of how to move forward in this turbulent time? Cooped up inside and need someone to talk shop with?

My name is Toby Singer. I’m a Brooklyn-based arts advisor and working artist, and I started Super Secret Arts Advisory to empower and inspire forward-thinking artists to make the work they want to make.

How does it work? I advise and mentor artistic folks like you on a monthly, bi-monthly, or weekly basis. Sessions are focused on strategic planning and mentorship for building your artistic practice, seeking out new sources of funding, and breaking out of the traditional structures that unnecessarily box in our artistic lives.

For as long as we’re collectively getting through this unprecedented time, I’m offering a free initial consultation to help our broader artistic family move forward in making the work that needs to be seen, felt, and heard.

Super Secret works with artists across all disciplines, including dancers, choreographers, musicians, playwrights, visual artists, theatremakers, arts entrepreneurs, and other creative folks with ambitious ideas.

If you're an artist making exciting work that is pushing our cultural conversation forward, set up a free consultation by sending a short email to Include: A) a little about yourself! B) a description of your artistic practice and what you're hoping to do C) where you heard about Super Secret D) availability over the next couple weeks.

Looking forward to meeting you. Stay safe, wash your hands, and stay home!

International Human Rights Art Festival





Call for Entries


at the

Wild Project Theater

195 E. 3rd Street, East Village, NY

December 7-13, 2020

New York City's International Human Rights Art Festival (IHRAF) and Wild Project Theater issue a call for proposals for the fourth annual International Human Rights Art Festival, December 7-13, 2020 at the Wild Project. 

We are looking for performance pieces in all media by NYC-based artists, which are built around a social concern.  We are especially interested in work exhibiting the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement; work inspired by the open-heart of the artist, and not their anger, disgust or disapproval.  We believe that words spoken from the heart enter the heart, while words spoken from the mouth or out of anger or frustration, never get past the ears. 

There is no fee to apply.

All accepted performances will receive a production stipend, full tech support, PR and marketing support and free rehearsal time, depending on availability.

Deadline is July 1, 2020. 
Final decisions will be issued by August 31.

Please note: The planned production cannot have been produced in New York in 2020.  All performance pieces must be brought to the festival completely production-ready.

Slackline Cyberstories



Slackline Cyberstories- Call For Submissions

Call for submissions! We’re looking for submissions again…  This time, we’re seeking your best monologues or two-handers…

Send us either:

– a short monologue (2-3 minutes), featuring a strong female-identifying character aged 35+


– a short two-hander (5 minutes) which will be filmed virtually and embraces that (two actors will not be in the same room, so use that in your storytelling), also featuring a strong female-identifying character aged 35+

We’re looking for:

Playwrights who identify as female

At least one character aged 35+ who identifies as female

Work that sticks to the above time constraints!

Great stories- the plays don’t have to be political, nor do they have to be female-only. We love an uplifting story, even if the content is sad/dramatic/difficult. We also love things a bit quirky!

What happens next:

If your monologue or play is chosen, we will match it up with an actor to perform it. Slackline will virtually rehearse the work with the actor, record it, then feature it on our YouTube channel.

These plays will be promoted with the same gusto that we promote our live productions- Slackline Productions will do our best to get your name out there and encourage as many people as possible to see your work.

Call for Submissions Deadline: 

We will choose one play every Wednesday, starting 25th March to be aired the next Wednesday. Please note that submissions will roll over to the next week, so no need to re-submit!

Our first piece will hit YouTube on 1st April. We plan to air a minimum of six monologues/plays (our typical Slackline Stories programme), but will keep going if amazing work comes our way (especially if we stay stuck inside)!

a project by Centrale Fies

deadline 30th April 2020

curated by Barbara Boninsegna and Simone Frangi
with Mentor 2020 Krystel Khoury


Since its creation, Live Works has been conceived as a gathering of living bodies as well as a moment of strong proximity allowing forms of collective intelligence and commons of competences to emerge.

The current sanitary crisis imposes physical distancing upon us and creates deep uncertainty in how to imagine our futures together and the shape this togetherness could eventually take. 

In this evolving situation, Centrale Fies cannot be sure whether Live Works will be able to exist in its original form in July 2020 or if it will have to manifest itself differently. 

In response to the precariousness of our shared condition and out of the will to take responsibilities towards the artists who have been applying to Live Works Vol. 8, the curatorial team has decided to pursue the preparation of the forthcoming eighth edition of the program, baring in mind the potential need of rethinking the boundaries of its format. 

The deadline for applying to Live Works is therefore extended till 30th April 2020. 

The selected artists will be notified by the end of May and will be taking part actively in discussing with the curatorial team the eventual transformations Live Works Vol. 8 will have to go through in case enacting a collective experience this summer becomes impossible.

According to the future possibilities of our mobility and bodily co-existence, the selected artists and the curators will find together the best ways to develop Live Works Vol. 8, its research and production residency, its free school featuring critical and feedback sessions as well as its live program. 

Barbara Boninsegna, Simone Frangi, Krystel Khoury


For each selected project will be awarded a budget of € 1.500,00: € 1.000,00 of this budget will be used for the production of the performance, € 500,00 will be assigned as a fee for the artistic work.

Centrale Fies covers the travel costs to reach Centrale Fies (maximum of € 500,00 per project) and will provide accommodation and food services for the whole residency period.
The budget of € 1.500,00 will be entirely corresponded at the beginning of the residency: all the information will be send after the selection announcement.
