CALL FOR PROPOSALS 2008
Le Petit Versailles, Call for Proposals for 2008 Season.
LPV was created in 1997 by Allied Productions and other neighborhood members as a GreenThumb public garden located at 247 East 2nd St. in the East Village. It is volunteer based and is dedicated to preserving the vitality of NYC greenspace through the arts, broadening & enriching the general public with performances, screenings, workshops and similar activities.
The garden is approximately 22 x 60 feet – located between two buildings that border 2nd St. and Houston St. It has a formal unified design with an arbor with areas designated for seating and gathering. We recently constructed a small stage platform and additional bench seating. Electrical power is donated by Allied Productions.Inc. Total capacity in the garden is between 40-75 people.
We present 6 months of public events April – November, with music & film series, visual art exhibitions and workshops. We are looking for unusual ideas as well as more traditional presentations that address the environment, social and progressive issues and the site specific nature of the garden itself. Temporary installations, performances, films, workshops in any discipline are desired. Exhibitions must include works that can withstand the rigors of nature. We also produce a hlafhour cable show LPVTV for Manhattan Public Access (MNN) for which we seek program submissions.
We are also on the list of available sites for the community service proponent of the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship Program. Target audiences and participants include gardeners, local neighborhood residents, artists, activists, tourists and visitors QUEER AND OTHERWISE from around the world.
