All Atlanta area artists are invited to submit a project as a lead artist to Round 8 of the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab. In the Lab, two projects will be given $10,000 each in development support culminating in a public showcase of the artists and their work in the Fall of 2022. The Reiser Lab seeks to foster the growth of generative artists of all varieties through work on collaborative projects. To that end the Alliance Theatre provides an artistic home, space to work, artistic counsel, financial resources, and a showcase opportunity.
The Lab is available for generative lead artists of any practice – actor, director, designer, writer, composer, choreographer or musician (and these are just examples) – to develop a collaborative. Artists who are not playwrights are strongly encouraged to be lead artists! It is the goal of the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab to celebrate the breadth and vision of Atlanta-based artists, to encourage collaboration among Atlanta’s artistic community, and to seed projects that will promote artistic growth and create projects ready to be produced here in Atlanta. Please note that the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab is devoted to taking projects and artists to the next level of development, and is not a showcase for completed work.
Each application will be evaluated using the following criteria:
How can the ideas and goals of this project be achieved?
Do the artists involved make sense as a team?
What is the quality of the work sample?
What is the strength of the application?
Is the described product producible?
Please note that the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab is devoted to taking projects and artists to the next level of development, and is not a showcase for completed work.
The projects will be judged by a panel of judges comprised of Susan Booth, Jennings Hertz Jr. Artistic Director; an Atlanta area Artistic Director; an artist or Artistic Director NOT currently Atlanta based; a current or alum Lab participant; and a member of the philanthropic community.
