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 (14th Street to Canal, Bowery to East River, and Chinatown.)  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 between April and October at the following sites:

East 4th Street Open Street (between Bowery / Second Ave; Thursday evenings)
Avenue B Open Street (between 14th and 6th Streets, Saturday afternoons)
Sarah D Roosevelt Park (at Stanton or Rivington Streets, Saturday afternoons)
Pier 35 (at FDR Drive, weekend evenings)
and occasional other pop up locations
