About the Queens Council on the Arts Artist Commissioning Program
Queens Council on the Arts is accepting applications for its Artist Commissioning Program (ACP)! Designed to democratize the traditional commissioning process, QCA is seeking individuals with a connection the communities of Maspeth/Ridgewood or Flushing to become an Art Commissioner or ACP Artist.
Art Commissioners evaluate and select the projects, serve in advisory capacity for the selected artists, and participate in monthly art convenings and professional development workshops around commissioning art.
Artists (Choreographers, Composers, Playwrights) receive a $10,000 commission to create a new work. Projects should tell an untold story highlighting underrepresented protagonists, as well as demonstrate a connection to the communities of either Flushing or Maspeth/Queens. ACP artists produce a World Premiere of their project in Queens, and work with an advisory cohort of local Art Commissioners.
