Calling All Miami Artists. Only 10 Commissions Left to Be Awarded.

Only 10 Commissions left to be Awarded.

The Adrienne Arsht Center invites performing artists in Miami-Dade County to participate in the Center’s new Heart of Art online community project by sharing their “Art in the Time of Coronavirus.” Heart of Art is the first online commissioning program in Miami-Dade County created to inspire new performing arts work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Using video as the virtual stage, 30 Miami-based performing artists will each be awarded $1,000 to create new works of dance, music, theater, spoken word and other performing arts that capture our community’s unique voice and experience during this unprecedented crisis. The new video works will be showcased on the Arsht Center’s website and promoted across the Center’s social media platforms and Arsht@Home e-newsletter.

Artists working across all genres of the performing arts are encouraged to apply, including music, theater, dance, spoken word, monologues or multi-genre combinations. Because Heart of Art is intended to create an artistic time capsule of Miami’s pandemic experience, the program is open exclusively to artists who reside in Miami-Dade County. The work must represent the Miami experience and address the subject of “art in the time of coronavirus” during the last three months of 2020 (October through December) through the artist’s creative lens.

Details for the video proposals, submission criteria and other guidelines are online HERE
