About We Create:
We Create is a process-oriented festival that gives artists the opportunity to create original works around an annual theme during a period of 6 months. Artists meet twice during that period to share and discuss their process; the final work is presented at the We Create festival. We Create has become a favorite in the Massachusetts arts community! The first week of April, Boston comes alive as a vibrant city committed to the support of self-identified women and gender non-conforming artists. Renowned and upcoming artists from Massachusetts, New England, and NY- share with you an unparalleled feast of music, dance, film, circus arts, and media arts. For two years in a row, we were awarded a Festivals Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. In 2017, we were awarded a LAB grant from The Boston Foundation towards the festival.
The 5th edition of this acclaimed festival is scheduled to take place on April 6-7, 2018. We are looking for artists that are interested in sharing their process of art making within their cohort, receiving support from other artists from other disciplines, and committed to creating high quality work to be presented to the community.
Self-identified women and gender non-conforming artists of all arts disciplines are encouraged to apply. Although the main creator must be a self-identified woman or a gender non-conforming artist, men are welcome as performers!
Applications are accepted until September 8th, 2017. Applicants will be notified within two weeks of the application deadline.
People of color are encouraged to apply.
