NEW "AVPA Pandemic Innovative Arts Grant"

Published on 10/15/2020 10:51:25 AM
In order to enhance the arts at Texas A&M University and in light of the ongoing need for social distancing and similar measure to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 infection, The Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts (AVPA) is offering new Pandemic Innovative Arts Grants to support the development, production, and public presentation of original performance and visual art works on campus in 2021.
While works presented virtually or streamed online will be considered for Pandemic Innovative Arts Grants, priority will be given to projects that imagine new modes for delivering art to our audiences in pandemic times. Proposals must meet or exceed state, local, and University COVID-19 guidelines. Within these constraints we hope to encourage a wide variety of projects that may include:
  • Outdoor performances and exhibitions for safely distanced audience pods;
  • Works for limited and isolated audiences;
  • Drive through or drive in art and performance presentations;
  • Mail art projects, art on demand, pod-plays, and works for audiences at a distance;
  • Soundwalks, alternate reality programming, and similar works that transform our spaces;
  • Multimedia and intermedia artwork;
  • And any other approach to making safe art for a pandemic world.

This list is not exhaustive: we seek proposals that take present circumstances as a creative condition for making exciting new work.
