KST MY PEOPLE QUEER ARTS 2018 | Call for Artist
Calling all LGBTQ+ artists, allies and advocates, it’s time to celebrate. Now in its 10th iteration, My People is an annual series that explores the lives of queer people of color through award-winning films, community conversations and performances. Inspired by KST’s namesake Billy Strayhorn, My People charts the rich contributions and continued resilience of the LGBTQ+ community, and offers a platform for new works and alternative perspectives that demonstrate a strong, active and vibrant community.

PROGRAM PROVISIONS:

- Access to 10 hours of studio time over the course of one month during our Fall 2018 season.
- Access to our Alloy Studios, schedule to be approved by Alloy Studios Manager.
- Production support including lighting and sound design assistance.
- My People Queer Arts artists are provided with a stipend. Kelly Strayhorn Theater recognizes that this stipend will most likely not cover all of the artists’ costs.

ELIGIBLE ARTIST MUST:

1) Reside in the Pittsburgh area.
2) Be invested in presenting work that explores themes of humanities, technology, and/or social practice using a multi-disciplinary approach
3) Identify as LGBTQ or Gender Non-Conforming.
