Calls for Artists, Performers, Curators and Producers
The Asian Arts Initiative hopes that the following programs will foster inspiration and dialogue among our diverse audiences – of emerging and professional artists, youth and elders, Asian Americans and non-Asians – through exposure to a wide array of artists, artwork, creative processes, and community issues. In particular, we are interested in projects that address themes or issues that are timely and relevant to the Asian American community in Philadelphia; and/or that engage with the local Chinatown neighborhood.
Call for Exhibition Proposals:
Asian Arts Initiative Community Curators Program
Asian Arts Initiative is pleased to issue a call for Community Curators. This program provides exhibition opportunities for visual artists, curators, and organizers exploring community issues and concerns. A “Community Curator” can be an individual artist, a professional curator, and/or a community representative who has an idea for an exhibition that they would like to make happen in the Asian Arts Initiative’s main gallery.

Call for Performing Artists:
Fall 2011 Artists Exchange: Home, far and near
November 10 – 19, 2011
Asian Arts Initiative is pleased to invite applications from performance-based artists to participate in our 2011 Artists Exchange exploring the theme of “Home, far and near.” Our Artists Exchange was started in 2002 with the original goal of supporting Asian American artists to explore or research topics and issues facing the Asian American community, and to create new work grounded and inspired by the learning exchange. As the Artists Exchange has evolved, we have also realized the importance of providing a collaborative space, especially for solo artists, and the opportunity for creative exchange.
We are seeking up to 8 artists representing diverse performance disciplines—including but not limited to, dance, music, spoken word, and theater. Each artist who is selected to participate will receive a $1,000 honorarium. Travel stipends and accommodations will be provided for artists who live outside the Philadelphia area. Artistic collectives or ensembles are eligible to apply though stipends and performance time will be limited.
