Call for Newark Artists

September 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:20 am

Call for Newark Artists to participate in a performance project with RU/NJIT students🎭🎬
During the semester, students From Page to Stage, Rutgers-NJIT Theatre Arts Program course will spend several weeks learning script analysis and how plays are produced for the stage. As part of their final project, students will meet Newark Artists to interview them about pretty much anything that comes up in conversation. It could be anything from childhood memories to process of art work, or the Newark artist community. These interviews will be transcribed from students’ handwritten notes into a monologue and performed as their Final Project for the course. Artists give final approval to the students before students memorize the work and perform personal narratives on RU/NJIT campus or Index Art Center during their class time 10:00 am to 11:20 am at end of the semester.

If interested in participating contact Lillian Ribeiro directly, or send email to lribeiro@njit.edu by 9/13/19.

First 15 artists to respond to call will be selected for participation. Participating artists must be available 9/25/19 and 10/9/19 from 10:00 am – 11:15 am. Students will visit Index Art Center to meet Newark artists on 9/25/19, and conduct one-on-one interviews on 10/9/19.

I hope to archive the students’ work as part of the growing body of work documenting narratives told by Newark artists themselves. My hope is that the work will not only be a learning experience for my students but will live in the archives of the university libraries to always remember our current Newark Artist family.
