The Hemispheric Institute is excited to announce that applications are now open for our upcoming program, EMERGENYC 2017 (April 8–July 8, 2017). See below for information about the program, application guidelines, and the deadline for applications.

The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics at New York University is now accepting applications for its tenth year of EMERGENYC, the Hemispheric New York Emerging Performers Program focused on political performance. EMERGENYC aims to support the development of “hemispheric” emerging artists through a program of workshops and events between April 8 and July 8, 2017. The deadline to submit applications is February 6, 2017.

We seek talented, committed, and highly motivated young performers/activists/artists whose work functions as a vehicle for political expression and social change, and who examine the broad range of identities, practices and histories of the Americas (the western hemisphere, thus “hemispheric”) through genres such as spoken word, street performance, satire, political cabaret, performance art, video performance, movement, and others.
