Creative Casting Call
Austin's New Year 2012 wants you
Austin’s New Year 2012 will be having another free, family-friendly (totally sober) event at Auditorium Shores this New Year’s Eve. To make it a flying success, they’re extending a call to all local individual creatives and arts organizations to send in their proposals to perform.
The New Year's performers will help to bring an expected 15,000 Austinites together in celebration of the coming year with art, music and film starting at 5pm, with a fireworks display at 10pm.
Event coordinators are looking to host a variety of creative, family-friendly musical and artistic performances, workshops, activities, and visual art installations. Individual musicians and performing artists including actors, jugglers, storytellers, dancers, fire dancers, face painters, elaborate costumers, and other festive performers are all encouraged to submit a one-page proposal including detailed description, a budget (if any) and relevant contact information.
Proposals should be concise, and submitted via email no later than September 19. Informational meetings to learn more will happen Sept. 1 and Sept. 12 at 6:30pm at the Cultural Arts Division Training Room (201 E. 2nd Street).
