The Arts Collaborative works to bring artistic events and activities to the St. Lawrence community and to help integrate arts programming into courses and co-curricular activities. We invite proposals that explore the role of the arts across the curriculum from any individual, department, or program.
While we anticipate proposals involving guest artists, proposals involving presentations or performances by SLU faculty and staff are also welcome, and interdisciplinary collaboration is encouraged. Student-sponsored events must include a faculty or staff coordinator.
We will consider proposals for events to occur in Fall 2014. Typically proposals are funded up to $7,500, but the committee will consider proposals up to $10,000 - $12,000.
We recognize that it requires significant lead time to book some artists, and arrange class visits and public activities/events. Therefore, if you have an idea for or are interested in submitting a proposal for Spring 2015, please e-mail Karin Blackburn the details, including who/what, the description, and tentative dates and budget. The committee will review this pre-proposal and will request additional information if we would like to consider a full proposal for funding the residency/event.
Deadline for submission of both full proposals for Fall 2014 residencies and pre-proposals for Spring 2015 residencies is Friday, March 31st.
Other forms that may be helpful when putting together your proposal:
Our major criteria in considering proposals are:
1. that there will be some kind of public event, such as a performance, demonstration, reading, or concert, open to the entire campus and off-campus community;
2. that the artist(s) is willing to be here for short campus residencies in order to visit classes, give workshops, and the like;
3. that the individual proposing the event, with the support of Karin Blackburn and the Arts Collaborative, will serve as coordinator for the residency.
4. that the theme and style of the event will be unlike events funded by this committee in the past two years.
Please feel free to contact any member of this committee with any questions.
