Open Call: Artist Proposals for FAB’s “Arts on Avenue B” & “Thursdays on 4th Street”



FABnyc is programming arts events throughout the summer on East 4th Street between Second Ave & Bowery on on Avenue B between 8th and 9th. (Avenue B programs are made possible in partnership with the Loisaida Open Streets Open Street Community Coalition.)

Both settings are informal and neighborhood-oriented.

We are seeking artists interested in presenting public performance, exhibits, family workshops, and other creative projects. Proposals may be submitted by individual artists or arts organizations.

If your proposal is selected, FABnyc staff will get in contact with you for further information and to discuss programming details.

FAB will provide staff administrative support, production/tech support, and an artist fee. Program fee range is $150-$300, depending on length of program, number of people involved, and complexity.

Arts programming on Ave B will take place on Saturday afternoons between 1pm and 5pm.
Arts programming on East 4th Street will take place Thursdays evenings between 5pm and 8pm.
Both programs will operate through September 2021.

Amplified sound is allowed and essential sound equipment is provided. There is no stage; activities happen either on the street or sidewalk depending on set up.

Projects with a direct community engagement component are encouraged.
