Broward Center Seeks Artists For Arts For Action: Black Voices Initiative

The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is seeking applications from Black performing artists for participation in a series of events including theater, dance, music, spoken word and comedy in its traditional performance spaces as well as an outdoor festival.

The paid performance opportunities are offered as part of the Center's Arts for Action: Black Voices initiative, which aims to use the arts as a catalyst to heighten awareness, deepen knowledge, create connections and elevate the voices of Black creatives in South Florida. This year, Arts for Action: Black Voices initiatives are generously supported by JM Family Enterprises, Inc.

During the current season, artists are invited to apply to perform in a new performance series in the Abdo New River Room, an intimate performance space that has become home to local and touring artists. And on March 19, the Broward Center will present the Rhythm by the River Festival in Esplanade Park, a free community event celebrating some of the most exciting and innovative Black voices in Broward County. Based on the success of last year's event, this upcoming festival will feature a fun-filled afternoon of music, dance, drama, poetry and interactive events for the whole family. In addition to live performances, guests will enjoy food trucks, workshops, art-making and more.

Those interested must reside in the tri-county area and complete the application form at https://bit.ly/3DCWXse. Applicants are invited to provide a video submission of past work along with completed application and include website, social media channels and/or booking references. If a video submission is not available, email artsforaction@browardcenter.org for support. Applications will be accepted and applicants notified on a rolling basis with upcoming deadlines of November 15 and February 15.
