Following on the heels of Miami Made 2010, a tremendous festival featuring homegrown local talent commissioned and showcased in the Adrienne Arsht Center’s intimate Carnival Studio Theater, the Center recently announced the next wave of Miami Made news: a call for local artists to submit proposals for the 2010-2011 Festival.  Miami Made is central to the Center’s mission to expand the boundaries of the performing arts by nurturing and supporting artists, particularly those working and living in our own community. This support ranges from commissioning new works from artists, but also by helping them develop their ideas through classes, readings, and workshops, and finally, by producing and presenting public performances of these works.

Artists living and working in South Florida are invited to submit proposals for new works in any area of the performing arts, including mixed media, works that extend beyond current artistic practices, and works that incorporate new technology.  Projects may be of any scale and suitable for performance either indoors or outdoors.  In developing proposals, artists should take into account the range of venues and alternative spaces at the Center (visit www.arshtcenter.org/tech for details). 

This summer the Adrienne Arsht Center will select several proposals for further creative development, ongoing guidance from the Center’s artistic staff, and opportunities to participate in think tank sessions with other arts professionals.  From this selected group of artists, projects will then be chosen for commissioning, additional creative development supported by the Center, and possible presentation. 

The proposal deadline is Friday, June 4, 2010 at 5pm.  For guidelines please visit: www.arshtcenter.org/miamimade or contact us at: miamimade@arshtcenter.org or the Miami Made Hotline: 786-468-2094. Miami Made has been supporting local Miami artists of all genres since 2005, commissioning, developing, educating, workshopping, and presenting new work.  This past year’s Miami Made included the world premieres of work by noted Miami artists Rosie Herrera, Rudi Goblen, and Jillian Mayer, plus special behind-the-scenes events including showcase presentations by Miami-born choreographer Letty Bassart and nationally acclaimed playwright Tarrel McCraney.
