CCCD seeks proposals for gallery takeovers

PRESS RELEASE FROM CCCD:

In 2015, CCCD launched a new program series titled Back to the Drawing Board, that invited six artists take over Benchspace Gallery & Workshop to create interactive installations, performances, and other experimental activities.

This year, CCCD is pleased to continue Back to the Drawing Board as a feature program of its 20th Anniversary celebration to be held on August 11, 2016. Three selected projects will be staged throughout CCCD’s three-story building at 67 Broadway in downtown Asheville, North Carolina.

Artists, makers, designers and performers of all disciplines are welcome to propose a project plan. Preference will be given to new projects not yet presented in public, with an emphasis on process and audience collaboration. Works in progress are welcome, with the intention of exposing the public to the, often unseen, creative process. Ideas that will engage the public in a critical dialogue are encouraged.

Each takeover will occur from 7-10 pm, Thursday August 11, 2016. Accepted applicants will receive a $1,000 stipend for materials and travel expenses.

Details and application here.
