RFP: Sound Scene 2019 "Amplify"
Sound Scene XII will be Saturday June 29th and Sunday June 30th, 2019 in Washington, D.C. Please fill out this form for EACH proposal (workshop, performance, interactive installation). Only one representative related to a given proposal should fill out this form (please do list all the collaborators in the fields noted below). Also as a reminder, the main location (the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden) has a limited number of power outlets available during Sound Scene. We are limited in the number of outlet-powered proposals that we can accept. We are extra pleased to consider proposals that are battery powered, human powered, or require no power. Thank you.
