Troy Cultural Alliance Announces Summer Square Opportunities for Artists

From July 2 through September 15, 2020 the City of Troy and the RenssCo Pandemic Response Committee will offer Summer Square, transforming public space to build vibrant socially distanced environments for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Summer Square will include a schedule of arts programming and will provide space for artists and creatives to showcase their talents and meet new audiences.

Activities will take place in one of three spaces and the Troy Cultural Alliance will be programming an open stage in front of Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and one at Monument Square where a stage and seating will be provided.

Schedule: Friday and Saturday evenings, performances to end by 9 PM

Creatives are encouraged to submit a proposal to the Troy Cultural Alliance at [email protected]. Proposals should include a brief bio of the artist(s), a description of the activity or performance, a work sample link, and a list of technical needs or equipment. Please include a schedule of availability. Due to budgetary and practical considerations it may not be possible to provide requested equipment, so please plan for minimal technical support.

Stipends of $250 per artist, ensemble, or event selected will be awarded by the Troy Cultural Alliance. The proposals will be reviewed by a panel of peers that reflect Troy’s diversity of communities and creative output.
