ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS THROUGH JULY 7TH
Blindspot Collective is seeking creatives age 16 - 24 for participation in a workshop based in music, movement, and song. Not only is this programming free to participate - but we are also offering a small stipend to each participant!
Artists will devise, produce, and perform an original series of personal pieces with guidance and mentorship from professional artists who specialize in music, dance, theatre, and writing. Participants will be inspired by their life history and encouraged to amplify their unique voices and perspectives while cutting songs from their past with their hopes for the future.
Cycles workshop dates will take place from July 17th - August 5th in downtown San Diego. Workshop sessions will be scheduled around participants' availability to the best of our ability, however daytime hours are required. Programming will culminate with a showcase of work at Epstein Amphitheater on UCSD's campus. While limited conflicts are acceptable - participants must have open availability August 4th & 5th.
