Going Dutch Festival - Visual Arts Application

The 10th annual Going Dutch Festival, produced by Side Street Studio Arts, is a celebration of the female voice in dance, music, theater, and the visual arts. The Festival will be held in Elgin, IL June 19-21, 2020. We so fell in love with our use of spaces last year, that we are keeping it all up-close and personal again this year! We want our audiences sharing space with the artists. All performances and exhibitions will be held in smaller, more intimate spaces. No fourth wall. No pomp.

For the fourth year in a row, we have the ability to provide a stipend to support a featured visual artist! This artist will show work in the festival, and lead workshops or talks, as they see fit. Stipends/commissions will range from $50 to $1000 and will be determined at the time of your festival acceptance by Saturday, February 1. Those interested must fill out the appropriate question in the application below.

SEEKING: two-dimensional, three-dimensional, video, audio and multi-media artwork created by self-identified women.

Works must be created (choreographed, written, developed, etc.) by a self-identified girls and women, but not all performers need to be female. All ages and experience levels are welcome.

Going Dutch will be curated by a panel of eight professional female artists currently working in the dance, theatre, and visual art fields.
