Open Call for Performing Artists


FABnyc hosts an ongoing open call for artists interested in presenting music, dance, puppetry, spoken word, and/or theater that works in a casual informal street environment.

We prioritize proposals from artists and groups based in the Lower East Side. All programmed artists receive a fee as well as tech and administrative support for their performances.  Proposed programs should run at least 60 minutes.

Performance series take place April thru October at two primary sites:

Arts on Avenue B
2 – 5:30pm Saturdays
Avenue B between 8th and 9th Streets

East 4th Street Open Street 
5 – 7pm Thursdays
East 4th between Bowery and Second Ave
