Wassaic Project 2023 Haunted Hamlet Open Call
Entry Deadline: May. 1
The Wassaic Project seeks artists to participate in the Haunted Hamlet on October 28, 2023. The Haunted Hamlet is our annual, one-night-only Halloween event in the hamlet of Wassaic. This year we are accepting a few types of proposals: site-specific installations for the first floor of Maxon Mills, outdoor installations, and performances. We will prioritize interactive and immersive proposals. We want to see your haunted games, your creepy trick or treat stations, and all of the spooky experiences you dream up.
For site-specific installations in Maxon Mills and outdoor installations:
Artists will have complete creative control over their installation, as long as they keep their work PG-13. We want artists who are excited to participate and get weird, as well as artists who are self-directed and independent with their projects and vision. Wassaic Project offers housing in one of our residency houses for 1 – 3 weeks between October 4 and October 28, 2023, private studio space in Maxon Mills, additional studio space in Luther Barn, and full access to our wood shop and print shop. We will offer a modest honorarium to participating artists and artistic teams.
Please explain how the piece will look or function. If your work is time-based or has video documentation, you may also link to media from YouTube, Vimeo, or SoundCloud.
