Open Call: 2018-19 SPARK Supported Artist Programme, Pegasus Theatre



Pegasus is excited to open application for the SPARK supported artist programme – inviting artists and companies to work with Pegasus from July 2018 – July 2019 to develop a new production for young audiences.

Pegasus is a pioneering force creating the present, challenging and shaping the future and making an enduring impact on the vitality of the performing arts locally, regionally and nationally.

We believe passionately that young people are the changemakers of the future. We nurture young artists and leaders providing unique opportunities for them to be influential in the arts and wider community.

The SPARK supported artist programme provides artists and companies of all levels with the space and skills development needed to turn their bold new ideas into a reality.

We’re looking to support new work for families and young audiences (aged 0-25) across the spectrum of performing arts that represents the vibrant and diverse community of East Oxford. We particularly welcome applications from artists whose experiences are less visible in ‘mainstream’ arts programming including BAME, LGBTQ+ and / or disabled artists.

The year long programme will provide bespoke support for four artists/companies based on their individual needs to cultivate, catalyse and develop innovative new productions.

SPARK artists at Pegasus have access to:
•Free rehearsal space
•Production days with our professional technical team
•Showcase events such as SPARK Night (performance scratch event, Spring 2019)
•Dramaturgical support with our Artistic Joint CEO
•Fundraising & marketing advice
•Opportunities to collaborate with Pegasus Young Companies & youth groups
•Network with artists & companies specialising in different areas of performance

If you'd like to apply for the SPARK supported artist programme summer 2018 – 2019 please request an application form:

Deadline for completed submissions: Monday 2nd July 2018.



Wave Hill Sunroom Project Space and Van Lier Fellowships Open Call



Wave Hill’s Visual Arts Program presents the work of contemporary artists who engage in a dialogue with nature, culture and site. A Call to Artists for the 2019 Sunroom Project Space and New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellowships is underway. Applicants for the Van Lier Fellowship will also be considered for the Sunroom Project Space alone; there is no need to submit two separate applications. The same jury will review the Van Lier Fellowship and Sunroom Project Space applications.


Sunroom Project Space:

The Sunroom Project Space is a venue for New York-area emerging artists to develop a new site-specific project to be exhibited in a six-week solo show in one of the two windowed sunrooms in Wave Hill’s Glyndor Gallery. Five artists will be selected.

Work in all media will be considered and artists are encouraged to respond to and engage with this unique space. The selected artists will be awarded an honorarium of $1,800 and will have between six and 12 months to develop their ideas and to create new work for the project space. The Sunroom exhibitions will be on view for a period of six weeks each from April through December 2019.

Eligibility: Open to emerging artists who live within a 50-mile radius of the Bronx, have a record of solid achievement and potential, and who are not represented by a commercial gallery, not a student, and have not previously shown at Wave Hill.


New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellowships:

In 2019, Wave Hill will administer two Fellowships on behalf of the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund of the New York Community Trust. The Fellowship provides support for talented, culturally diverse young artists who are seriously dedicated to a career in the arts. The current (2018) Van Lier Fellows are Ashton Agbomenou and Yelaine Rodriguez.

The Van Lier Fellowship is a one-year fellowship that will be awarded to two (2) New York City-based artists, who are 30 years of age or younger (born in 1989 or after) and are not currently enrolled in a degree-granting program. The fellowship provides emerging artists from culturally diverse backgrounds valuable mentorship opportunities, including working with the curatorial staff, artists and arts professionals to prepare and promote their projects and to define career paths over the course of the program (January through December 2019).

Each Van Lier Fellow will receive a stipend of $8,000. The goal for each Van Lier Fellow at Wave Hill is to develop the skills and professional credit needed to establish a successful career in art. Fellows will:

  • Participate in the 6-week Winter Workspace program (February–March 2019);
  • Create solo show in the Sunroom Project Space (September–October 2019);
  • Receive career mentoring, proposal development support, and portfolio reviews from staff and art experts;
  • Work with staff to observe artist selection process and attend studio visits;
  • Learn to speak about and interpret their art, while interacting with the public through Winter Workspace Program; and
  • Meet regularly with curators to outline and review development of their art work and career paths.


For this fellowship, we are seeking applicants who:

  • Are emerging artists 30 years of age or younger;
  • Are from underrepresented communities and/or culturally diverse backgrounds;
  • Live in one of the five boroughs of New York City;
  • Have completed college and are not enrolled in a degree-granting program in 2019;
  • Demonstrate artistic and career potential; 
  • Demonstrate financial need;
  • Are not represented by a commercial gallery; and
  • Are available to participate in the Winter Workspace and Sunroom Project Space.

Application Instructions:

Artists can submit applications using our online applications portal on our website. The deadline is May 4, 2018. For more information and to submit an application for the Sunroom Project Space or Van Lier Fellowship, please go to www.wavehill.org/arts/artist-guidelines.

Applications for the 2019 Sunroom Project and Van Lier Fellowships will be reviewed by a jury comprising Wave Hill’s curatorial staff, an invited curator, and a previous Sunroom and Van Lier artist. The same jury will review the Sunroom Project Space and Van Lier Fellowship applications. The Van Lier Fellowship applicants will also be considered for the Sunroom Project Space alone; there is no need to submit two separate applications. Interviews will be held this summer. Final decisions will be made by August 2018, and all artists will be contacted at that time.


Open Call 'SENDING LOVE TO THE WORLD' All Welcome!



Sending Love to the World / by Miya Rosa Marques

‘Sending Love To the World’

is an OPEN CALL for artists from all around the world, who would like to make this world a little bit better through their art!


Why ‘Sending Love To the World’?

Unconditional love is the cure for human-made hatred and anxieties. In fact, all negativity is human-made and a result of the absence of love. Where unconditional love is, negativity does not exist. Love is superior compared to hatred and anxieties; as light is superior to darkness. Switch the light on and darkness disappears. Unconditional love is a choice. So, let’s just chose love over hatred. Let's send love to the world!



Participating is really simple. Regardless of your age, profession, ethnic, cultural, or educational background; whether you consider yourself an artist or not; all you need to do is to follow the guidelines on our website www.thoughtsbecomeart.com/participation
Read the summary of the guidelines below:

  1. Interpret and visualise the theme of ‘Sending Love To The World’​
  2. Put your ideas down on a small-scale format. The longer side of your original artwork shall be no larger than 23,5cm. 
    It can be of course smaller!
  3. You may use any artistic tools to design your miniature/small-scale artwork: pencil, colours, collage, photography, …​
  4. All submissions that convey the core principles of Theoretical Art will be included in the installation in Hong Kong. Simply said, if your original artwork includes solely the positive and constructive forms of artistic expression and conveys the spirit of love and beauty, you are in. Your artwork travels to Hong Kong and will be presented to the world!​
  5. Important, your artwork will not be sent back to you. Instead it will be either gifted to an individual or institution that strive towards positive change in the world; or sold for charity purposes to support non-profit social projects.​
  6. All submissions will be presented and promoted online prior the event in Hong Kong. Therefore, please send your artwork together with the participation form to the address below as soon as possible. Nevertheless, the final closing date for entries is January 15, 2018.
