Call for Project Proposals – PlySpace // Eclipse
PlySpace, the artist-in-residence program of the Muncie Arts and Culture Council (Munciearts.org), is seeking regional artists with project proposals that can be completed during a short-term residency (two to four weeks) between February 15th and April 9th. Project proposals must center around or be complimentary to the upcoming solar eclipse, which will occur on April 8th, 2024, in Muncie, Indiana. Muncie is a primary viewing location for the eclipse and expects to have over 100,000 visitors during the Eclipse Muncie weekend celebration, from April 5th and April 9th.
This call is open to regional artists (Indiana – excluding Delaware County, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky) over the age of 21, and working in any arts discipline. Ideal projects will have a community engagement component and will be situated so that they can be enjoyed by the public during the dates surrounding Eclipse Muncie. Selected artists will receive a stipend of up to $1,000 to use toward their project (including travel and expenses). Artists will have the option of utilizing free living space and studio space in Muncie during the duration of the residency, though this is not required.
The deadline for emailed proposal applications is February 10th at 11:59 PM. All application requirements and guidelines are located on our website at MuncieArts.org/eclipse.
