New York City is changing drastically during this pandemic and racial justice reckoning. Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and playwright Cusi Cram invite artist investigators - playwrights, performers, designers, directors, dramaturgs, and other theatremakers - to artistically investigate a block in NYC. This is designed to be a block you have a connection to - it can be where you live, or just a block you love. It can be in your neighborhood or not.
5 artists will be selected to receive a mini-grant of $250 to produce any sort of artistic material that addresses one or more of the questions:
Why did you choose this block?
What is there to celebrate about this block? What are the challenges of the block?
What was this block like in a previous time?
How do you imagine this block in 3 months, a year, five years, a decade?
The selected artists will gather in two artistic sessions, led by Cusi Cram, to discuss New York and the ways in which our landscape is changing during the pandemic and racial justice reckoning. The plan is for the work to be presented in an online platform in the Winter of 2021.
