Open Call: Artists for an Artst's Tent!

we are pleased to announce this Open Call!
Artists for an Artist's Tent.

We are the One Stop Family Pop Up! Our aim is to help families access and enjoy outdoor events while raising children by providing two tents in public spaces: 1). An artist’s tent that invites community members to engage in interactive art workshops related to family, and 2). A lactation tent + a diaper changing station + priority rest & play area + an information table – accommodations that all families need but are not yet provided in our community. Our awareness initiatives celebrate maternal health and serve to improve access for pregnant women and parents.

Your proposal should have:
Your name
Your website/SNS account name
An explanation of your interactive art workshop idea(s) in a one-two page proposal. Please describe your:
A: Workshop or interactive public art.
B: Art show
You may hold either A (workshop or interactive public art), B (an art show), or both A and B.
Tent dimensions are 10 x 10 feet. You will be supplied with a table, chairs and tarp wall if needed.

Proposals are due: May 31 at 11:59pm, 2018. Please email your proposals to

One Stop Family Pop Ups will be held four times from about 1:00-4:00PM on Saturdays or Sundays during June – September, rain or shine. Planned locations include Astoria Park and Socrates Park, in Queens; a street festival in LES of Manhattan; and Boogie On The Boulevard, in the Bronx. As specific dates are still TBA, we will match you to an available date and location.

Each participating artist will be awarded $125 for their participation and $100 for material costs for a total of $225. Selected artists are able to access and shop for free materials at The Materials For The Arts during June-September. Each artist is responsible for the design and implementation of their agreed-upon project.

To aid you in brainstorming and proposing applicable concepts, please take a look at our previous activities at:

We look forward to hearing from you!
