Announcing an open call for artists all of persuasions to contribute their ideas and talents to a collaborative, inter-disciplinary installation and performance series culminating at Public Space One throughout the month of October.  The project will begin with a meeting in late June where interested artists will come together and discuss their own current work and interests in their field in the hopes that connections across disciplines will be made.  There are no predetermined rules about who can collaborate with who or how many artists or various mediums can work together, but it will be decided early on how all of the discrete parts will come together in the shared space.  The theme of the entire project will be determined by the interests and ideas contributed by the artists involved; since the installation and performance series will be occurring throughout the month of October, the projects that result from the mix of artists will be experienced as works in progress leading up to a yet undetermined end event and closing show.   Artists will have from the end of June through October 1, 2011 to generate and discuss concepts, ideas, and create with each other.

This project is the brainchild of local dancemakers and PS1 and is being funded by the donations gathered by a benefit dance concert.  There is $800 that artists will be able to divvy up and use for materials depending on their needs.  The guiding spirit of this collaborative event is one of cooperation, exploration, and a shared desire to create works of art that cross and blend disciplines while forging a strong network of support in Iowa City’s creative community.
