Submit your concept by July 19
The Arts Council of Greater New Haven seeks submissions from artists of all kinds for an original performance to explore our Neighbor to Neighbor Arts Awards theme.
A panel from the Arts Council will evaluate submissions based on relevance to theme, originality, and overall fit. The selected artist or performance group will receive a $500 commission for their work and 2 complimentary tickets to the luncheon. The winner will also be included on the invitation and livestreamed during the event.
The C. Newton Schenck III Award for Lifetime Achievement in and Contribution to the Arts is selected by our Board of Directors. The theme and commission were selected by the Arts Council team. Awardees are nominated by the community and selected by an independent jury, which this year includes Elinor Slomba, Senator George Logan, Diane Brown, David Greco, and Julie Smith.
