Twin Cities Media Alliance (TCMA), a media arts organization that produces the Twin Cities Daily Planet, is now accepting applications for Creative Specialists for its new media arts project Our Space Is Spoken For – a multidisciplinary public art storytelling project.
In Our Space, artists of color across disciplines will work in teams to create performance pieces based on the stories of space of community members – who we call community storytellers. Transforming public spaces into stages, these artist teams will perform their pieces in a public space inherent to their storyteller’s story. The process to create Our Space, including the performances themselves, will culminate into a documentary film that will be screened late October.
As a creative specialists, you will use your expertise to support Our Space artists in enacting and amplifying their vision of their public art performances – taking place across Saint Paul. Scope of work may range from simple consulting to building and technical assistance. Hours may vary but will be compensated accordingly.
