A wonderful opportunity for any artist wanting to work with sound, the Artist Support Program annually awards up to eight artists/artist teams 20 hours of studio recording and production time at Jack Straw Productions' studios with an engineer. An additional eight to ten artists/artist teams will receive matching awards. This program is open to artists of all disciplines including, but not limited to, artists working in the musical, visual, media, performing, literary, and interdisciplinary arts. Completed projects are presented to the public in a variety of ways, including our Meet the Artist nights. Applications are reviewed by a multidisciplinary, peer-panel that makes selections based primarily on artistic excellence demonstrated in the work samples provided by each applicant.
New Media Gallery Program ~ Deadline: Friday, November 4, 2006
The New Media Gallery Program offers a unique venue in Seattle for established and emerging artists of various disciplines interested in creating work for which sound has an integral or an exclusive role. Each year, up to three artists/artist teams are awarded residency hours to work in Jack Straw Productions' recording studio with an engineer to produce the sound component of their work. Installations are exhibited for up to two months and each installation is accompanied by an artist reception, related workshops, and special events. The Jack Straw New Media Gallery Program enables many artists/artist teams to experiment with new media and develop new skills in a supportive setting. This program is open to artists of all disciplines including, but not limited to, artists working in the visual, media, performing, literary, and interdisciplinary arts. Applications are reviewed by a multidisciplinary, peer-panel that makes selections based primarily on artistic excellence demonstrated in the work samples provided by each applicant.
Writers Program ~ Deadline: Friday, November 18, 2006
Jack Straw Productions began the Jack Straw Writers Program as a way to help Puget Sound area writers move their work off the page and into an aural form. The Writers Program is open to artists working in all literary genres and offers a variety of unique tools and opportunities, including public readings, microphone and voice training, inclusion in the Jack Straw Writers Program Chapbook, interview sessions, and radio program features. Each year Jack Straw Productions invites a new guest curator to select up to fourteen writers for the program. The curator is asked to make selections based foremost on artistic excellence demonstrated in the work samples provided by each applicant.
