Honolulu Holds Open Call to Performing Artists

 

To kick off the 40th anniversary of the City’s Commission on Culture and the Arts, the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts (MOCA) is holding an open call to individuals and groups interested in performing on February 23, 2008, on the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center grounds.

 

“This is an excellent opportunity for Honolulu to put the spotlight on our island’s many talented performers and groups,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann. “The event will attract residents and visitors alike who appreciate music, dance and other performance arts. Honolulu’s wealth of talent is a reason why AmericanStyle magazine ranked Honolulu as the No. 7 arts destination among mid-sized U.S. cities.”

 

Performers from all genres and cultural groups are invited to apply by December 12, 2007, for the first of several events planned for the year-long celebration.

 

Entry materials must be submitted to the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts, 530 South King Street, Room 404, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813. Hand-delivered entries must be submitted during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, between 7:45 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Artists must reside in the City and County of Honolulu.

 

Entry materials must include:

·        Artist’s name, address and phone number

·        Resume

·        Audition CD, tape or DVD demonstrating artist’s ability to perform on stage (maximum three minutes in length)

·        Technical stage requirements           

 

MOCA reserves the right to reject any insufficient, inappropriate or incomplete entry, as well as reissue the call for artists. For more information, contact MOCA at 523-4674 or send an e-mail to moca-info@honolulu.gov. Submitted entries may be kept for consideration for future 40th anniversary celebration activities.

Established in 1968, the Commission on Culture and the Arts assists the City in preserving the artistic and cultural heritages of all people residing in Honolulu. The commission also makes recommendations concerning the "Art in City Buildings Ordinance" on the acquisition of art works and the acceptance of works of art offered as gifts.
