CALL FOR ARTISTS FROM 4-26-2020

 

The mission of the Twin Cities Iranian Culture Fest is to give Minnesota’s Iranian-American community a way to share their cultural heritage with their children, and for other Minnesotans to learn about that culture. Participation in ICW is open to all Minnesotans whose creative work in the arts, literature and scholarship reflects or illuminates that heritage. This can include painting, sculpture, ceramics, dioramas, photography or other visual art forms, as well as music, poetry and dance and scholarly presentations on Iranian culture.     Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we are currently planning an online festival, with live video performances/lectures and a virtual art gallery. If social distancing precautions are lifted prior to the festival date, there is a possibility that some events will be converted to face-to-face events. There is also the possibility that some face-to-face events may be held at a later date.     Stipends of $250 will be available for successful applicants participating in face-to-face events, thanks to a grant from the Metro Regional Arts Council, funded by the Minnesota Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment. No stipends are available for online events.     To apply, submit a CV/resume and 3-5 samples of your work using this form.                Samples of visual art should be submitted as jpegs;           Samples of written work should be submitted as pdf documents;           Samples of performance art should be submitted as links to videos or audio files.     Please submit your application by May 30.
All applicants will be notified of the selection committee’s decision by July 15th.
