International Human Rights Art Festival and Wild Project Theater seek short productions

web site

New York City's International Human Rights Art Festival (IHRAF.ORG) and Wild Project Theater issue a call for proposals for a short play festival (10-20 minutes) on Tuesday evening, December 10, as part of the third annual International Human Rights Art Festival, December 9-15 at the Wild Project, 195 E. 3rd Street, East Village, NY.

We are looking for self-produced pieces which are built around a social concern.  We are especially interested in work exhibiting the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement; work inspired by the open-heart of the artist, and not their anger, disgust or disapproval.

Selected plays will receive a tech rehearsal, full tech support, PR and marketing as part of the festival and a prime spot in this year's event  There is no fee to apply, and a production stipend of $50 per selected play will be paid.

Please send a description of the work, links, resume and any other information which might be of help in our decision to humanrightsartfestival@gmail.com.

Deadline is June 1, 2019. 

The International Human Rights Art Festival has produced more than 80 events featuring more than 300 artists since its inception in March 2017, at Dixon Place (NY).  It has been covered in more than 30 media outlets (including the New York Times, NBC, Fox5, AM-NY, Metro-NY, Huffington Post and many others); has worked with politicians and performers such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Senator Charles Schumer, Congressman John Lewis, Kathleen Turner, Barbra Streisand and many more and WNYC is its media partner.  The Wild Project has been the starting point of plays that have gone on to Off-Broadway and Broadway productions; has had their productions reviewed numerous times in the New York Times and dozens of other outlets, and has offered a nurturing, beautiful theater which brings together local, downtown artists and national and international performers and events.
