We are seeking work that explores the theme “New Roots Chicago: Digging our past and branching into our future.” The experiences of nurturing a home, and tensions between uprooting and rerooting in the Chicagoland area will be the key issue for our 2012 annual Jewish/Muslim performing arts event.
Jewish and Muslim poets, singer-songwriters, storytellers, comedians, actors, dancers, bands, visual artists or filmmakers can apply today. We encourage both professional and non-professional artists to apply.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org NOW, but no later than Wednesday, Feb. 1. Include your name, contact information (phone and email), a description of your performance piece, samples of your art (mp3s, links, videos, photos) if possible, and the community (Jewish or Muslim) with which you identify.
