Announcing Le Petit Versailles CALL FOR PROPOSALS for 2009
Submission Postmark Deadline is January 30, 2009.

Le Petit Versailles 2009 Season – Call for Proposals.
LPVwas created in 1997 by Allied Productions and other neighborhood members as a GreenThumb public garden located at 346 East Houston St. @ Avenue C. 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 provided by Allied Productions. Total capacity in the garden is between 40-75 people.
We will present 6 months of public events May- 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 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 communities include queer, people of color, gardeners, local neighborhood residents, artists and activists, from around the world.
