Seeking volunteer actors to perform in Andy Kaufman play

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012
I  have recently put into action a long standing goal of mine and contacted the estate of Andy Kaufman about performing a little known play he wrote back in 1964.  I was given permission to hold the performances which will be July 13,14,15 of this year as part of a residency at the theater.
I’ll be holding auditions for said play on Saturday May 5th at the Empire Black Box at 95 Empire (next to AS220) from 11:00am-2:30pm. and by appointment.
About the play: it has all the charm of something written by A.K., simplistic and silly and fun. It contains intergender wrestling (this was written before his foray into this professionally), fake beards and songs. Written by a young Andy Kaufman, it showcases his burgeoning ideas about gender, art and social politics.
I work hard, I play hard. I’m looking for some people to get in on this fun time.
Email me at sarahlreiter@gmail.com to make an appointment to audition or to get involved in some other way.
Regards,
Sarah L Reiter

Arts Writers Grant Program

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Arts Writers Grant Program
2012 Grant Open for Submissions
Deadline: Wednesday, June 6, 2012
http://www.artswriters.org

 

The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program supports individual writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art through grants ranging from 3,000 to 50,000 USD, issued directly to individual authors. The first program of
its type, it was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. The Arts Writers Grant Program aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.

Writers who meet the program’s eligibility requirements are invited to apply in the following categories:

Articles Blogs Books New and Alternative Media Short-Form Writing

Through all its grants, the Arts Writers Grant Program aims to honor and encourage writing about art

  • that is rigorous, passionate, eloquent, and precise;
  • in which a keen engagement with the present is infused with an appreciation
    of the historical;
  • that is neither afraid to take a stand nor content to deliver authoritative
    pronouncements, but serves rather to pose questions and generate new
    possibilities for thinking about, seeing, and making art;
  • that is sensitive to both the importance and difficulty of situating
    aesthetic objects within their broader social and political contexts;
  • that does not dilute or sidestep complex ideas but renders accessible their
    meaning and value;
  • that creatively challenges the limits of existing conventions, without
    valorizing novelty as an end in itself.

Art Writing Workshop
In partnership with the International Association of Art Critics/USA Section, the Arts Writers Grant Program offers ten select applicants consultations with leading art critics. For more information, please visit http://www.aicausa.org.

A Personal Retreat for Motivated Women

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

www.turkeylandcovefoundation.org

 

Open Call for Applicants: Fall Session

Turkey Land Cove (TLC) Foundation is currently accepting
applications for our next retreat session which runs from (September 15th- December 15th).  Grant application and supporting materials are due by Friday, June 15th, 2012.

TLC Foundation offers a unique grant opportunity for motivated women to pursue their professional, educational and artistic goals, away from the distractions of daily life.  TLC Foundation provides a quiet space for women to progress toward a defined goal, complete a project or develop tools to
propel their lives in a new direction.

The concept for TLC Foundation began more than 15 years ago when its founder began offering space to women in various stages of transition. One woman needed time and space to reflect on a
major career change.  Another was ready to finish her book.   All the women benefitted from the breathtaking setting, the solitude of the space, and the founder’s welcoming hospitality.  Today, TLC Foundation is committed to providing need-based grants to women.

The successful applicant will be a motivated woman with clear, definable goals to pursue artistic, professional, or educational advancement and a plan to implement those goals.  We are looking for women with the following characteristics: leadership qualities, goal-directed, ambitious, motivated, and
determined.  She will be judged on the quality of her idea and the professionalism of her plan.  We are currently limiting grants to women who are residents of New England or New York
State
.
