New Story Festival Program Proposal Form
Thank you for your interest in submitting a programming idea to the New Story Festival. Workshops/performances may be anywhere from 30-90 minutes in length. You may also propose services, art installations, or other kinds of interactive stations that would be offered throughout the duration of the festival.

In addition to proposals by partnering organizations, self-submitted program ideas from individuals are also welcome. Those confirmed will receive a free ticket to the festival.

Multiple submissions are welcome! If you are submitting more than one proposal, please fill out a separate form for each. Proposals will be reviewed and approved by our Program Team. We will contact you via email as soon as we are able to let you know whether your submission has been approved.

You may email us at with any questions.

In which program area(s) would this contribution fit best? *
How long would the program contribution be? *
Are there specific times during the festival weekend when your contributor would NOT be available?
The festival will run from 4pm Friday (3/29) till 10pm Sunday (3/31), though most program items will be offered on Saturday and Sunday between 9am-6pm. We cannot accommodate requests for preferred time-slots, but we will do our best to work around any times when they are definitely NOT available. Skip this question if there are no restrictions to their availability.
Please describe any specific logistical needs (if any) your contribution may require:
We ask that contributors bring their own distributed materials with them, as print services will not be available on-site. All on-site venues will be equipped with speakers and microphones. A handful of venues will have projection capabilities. Please let us know if you have any specific audio-visual or similar needs. If you are offering an ongoing service/installation/station, please let us know what size and type of space you would require.
Your answer
How diverse are your contributors? *
The New Story Festival has a participation goal of at least 50% women, 40% people of color, and 15% LGBTQ+. Please describe whether and how your contribution might help us reach those goals.
Your answer
To ensure fair exchange for content creation, we ask that partner organizations cover any expenses for their contributions (e.g. honorariums, travel costs, materials). If submitting this proposal on behalf of an organization, please confirm that you will cover these costs as necessary and let us know your approximate budget.
(We are unfortunately not able to pay expenses or honorariums for self-submitted contributors, but every contributor will receive a free festival pass AND an affiliate promoter link that shares a portion of the proceeds for every ticket you help to sell. Free "couch-surfing" accommodations may also be available if needed. See the website for details.)
Your answer
If submitting on behalf of a potential contributor, please let us know whether you have already confirmed their willingness to participate.
Is there anything else we should know regarding this potential contribution?
Your answer
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
