Call for Artists:
Asian-American Performers, Artists & Writers for Sakhi’s Second “Gender Justice and The Arts” Showcase at Bowery Poetry
Building on the success of last year’s sold out “Gender Justice and the Arts” event at Bowery Poetry Club, leading NYC immigrant women’s advocacy organization Sakhi for South Asian Women is pleased to announce our call for artists for the second iteration of this multi-disciplinary show that explores the intersections of creative expression and gender politics.
Last year’s stellar line up included performances from Alok Vaid-Menon, Benaifer Bhadha, and Mashuq Deen, and a panel featuring visual artists Ayqa Khan, Amina Ahmed, and Soni Satpathy-Singh. This year, in an effort to build solidarity and form important bridges between our various communities, Sakhi is opening our artist call to all Asian and Asian American artists who identify as women, transgender, nonbinary, or gender non-conforming and have a strong commitment to gender justice as part of their creative work. We are seeking theater performers, visual artists, poets, and writers.
This show will take place Monday, July 31st, 2017, at 6PM at the Bowery Poetry Club on the Lower East Side. To be considered for the show, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with links to your website and work, a brief proposal for what you’d like to present, and an explanation of how gender justice plays into your creative process and work by June 21st, 2017. Artists will have the opportunity to sell work at the show and provide materials for guests on upcoming performances and events. All artists will be compensated for participation in the show.
