RISK/REWARD and TRACY CAMERON FRANCIS PRESENT
PAVEMENT: A FESTIVAL OF POP-UP PERFORMANCES IN PUBLIC PLACES
First Thursday Gallery Walk  |  FREE  |  The Pearl neighborhood in NW Portland 

A festival of pop-up performances in public places.

National and local artists will engage with the environment and the community through short form site-specific performances in public spaces throughout the First Thursday gallery walk enlivening our streets with unexpected images and experiences.  

 

CALL FOR ARTISTS: Risk/Reward seeks individual artists or collectives that would like to create a short form ( under 10 minute) performance in a site-specific location along the First Thursday Gallery walk in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon. Longer or durational performance will be considered on a case by case basis. One development workshop will be offered to discuss and workshop your piece prior to the festival.

 

Submissions should:
-Be site-specific
 -You don’t need to know the exact site of your performance, but please put any architectural elements that your piece requires (sidewalk, stairs, elevated platform, tree, etc.)
-Be self-contained (any technical elements/props must be part of the performance and require no prior set up or clean up)


Artists are required to:
-Attend meeting/workshop on July 30th at Artists Rep to rehearse and get feedback.
-Be available at least two hours before the start of the event for a dry run/walk through.

 

Fill out this form to submit your project by 7/13
