Araca Project 2016
Applications for 2016 slots are currently available at The Araca Project website and below. The deadline for applications is March 21st, 2016.
The Araca Project is an opportunity for emerging artists to foster their entrepreneurial spirit and produce their own work in an Off-Broadway Theater this fall. The goal is to give recent graduates the tools and knowledge they need to mount a show in New York City.
Selected participants will attend the “boot camp” in midtown Manhattan June 27th – July 1st where they will meet with leaders in commercial Off-Broadway casting, producing, ticketing, designing, and budgeting. Through The Araca Project, artists will take initiative and assume the responsibility of a producer, including: securing production rights from an author; casting; rehearsing; assembling design elements; raising capital; engaging a creative team; loading in and out a physical production; budgeting; marketing; maintaining a box office/ticketing system, and everything in between.
