Applications are open for EMERGENYC 2020

We seek talented, committed and highly motivated emerging performers/activists/artists whose work aims to be a vehicle for political expression, and who examine the broad range of identities, practices and histories of the Americas through forms such as performance art, spoken word, urban interventions, satire, culture jamming, political cabaret, theater, creative activism, video performance, movement, and others. Drawing on the vitality of New York City as a hemispheric crossroads, the program will enable performers/activists to work with leading practitioners in the field, to take interdisciplinary leaps, and to develop their own strategies to use performance for social change.

The Hemispheric Institute at New York University launched EMERGENYC in 2008 as an incubator for emerging artists working at the intersection of performance and politics. Offering varied entry points into art and activism, the annual program prioritizes process, discovery and reflection, fostering a ‘brave space’ for experimentation and risk-taking. Since its inception, it has activated a strong network of local artivists—many of them from traditionally underrepresented communities—who have built solidarity across differences and who continue to challenge dominant narratives through artistic cultural resistance.
