Call for Proposals – Hidden City Philadelphia – due 7/1/2012

Hidden City Philadelphia invites project proposals for the 2013 Hidden City Philadelphia Festival, which is currently scheduled to run from May 23 – June 30, 2013.

Building upon the success of the 2009 Hidden City festival, which featured art installations and performances in obscured or inaccessible heritage sites, the next Hidden City Festival will encompass roughly twelve heritage sites that will be open to the public for six weeks. Every site is staffed by a site manager and volunteer docents with training in interpreting both the art installations and history of the site and its community. A central hub provides visitor support.

Developing projects for Hidden City Philadelphia is a highly collaborative and evolutionary process in which we strive to balance community, creative, and site-related interests. Many of the sites and communities in which we work are at-risk, or in the midst of transition. Some are fragile, and others are sacred spaces. This is what makes our project exciting and fertile ground for creative vision.
