· Consider the area surrounding the artwork and its intended uses as described in this call

· Reflect the community’s history, diversity and cultural profile

Submission deadline: Submissions must be received through the CAFÉ online system by Thursday, November 30, 2018 at 10:59 P.M. CT. We cannot accept late, hand-delivered, mailed or emailed submissions.

8. NOTIFICATIONS AND PROPOSALS: Notifications will be issued in January, 2019.


This is a call for submission of samples of previous work and qualifications only. If selected to develop a proposal for one of the commissions, you will be contacted by Percent for Art program staff with further details about the site, concept and scope.


Finalists will be required to attend a site visit with the Committee and present his/her proposal to the Committee.  The proposal must include the concept, materials, size, weight, installation requirements, details of maintenance, and budget.  The proposal must also include a maquette or digital renderings as appropriate, that show the physical volume of the space and allow for multiple perspectives of the artwork within the space. All proposal documents, including the maquette and renderings, will become property of the state of Louisiana and may be used for educational and/or promotional purposes of the program. Each finalist’s proposal may be exhibited for committee and community consideration.


A proposal fee not to exceed $500 will be paid to finalists to offset expenses associated with development of proposals and travel to present to the Committee.  In the event a proposal is not required, and the Committee decides to direct purchase an existing work, the proposal fee will not be paid.


NOTE: The Percent for Art Program and the Artist Selection Committee reserve the right to reject any or all applications or proposals, to reject any finalist, or to terminate the selection process for any project without prior notice.

Call for Entry: Open Call for New Plays By Latinx Writers (California artists ONLY)

Open Call for New Plays By Latinx Writers
For California artists

TBT is dedicated to producing staged readings of full-length new work. For our purposes, "new work" means that the play has never been fully produced. Previous readings and workshops do not render the piece ineligible. We are creating a forum for conversation, and as such we are seeking plays that raise questions about pertinent social, political, or environmental issues of our time. 

The next call for submissions will open October 1 and run through October 31. We are seeking plays by Latinx writers, featuring Latinx characters. As always, submitted plays should touch on pressing social, political, and/or environmental issues. 

At the beginning of November, we will commence our play selection process. We will announce the chosen play in January. The reading will take place in Santa Ana, California in Spring 2019. While we highly encourage playwrights to attend the reading of their play, we understand that it may be impractical or impossible in some cases and do not require it. We encourage both local and non-local playwrights to submit.

In addition to a desire to foster conversation within our diverse community, TBT also seeks to support new voices in American theatre and local artists. As such, the playwright of the selected work will receive a writer's fee and will not be responsible for the payment of actors and directors nor the rental of spaces. Please note that TBT cannot provide any additional funds for travel or lodging, though we may be able to help arrange either. 

To submit your play for consideration, click the SUBMISSION FORM button on our website when it becomes active on October 1. Be prepared to answer some basic questions about you, your play, and the important issues your story addresses. You will be asked to upload your full script in PDF form, and we ask that you include a title page and use the file name format LASTNAME_TITLE.pdf.


Talk Back Theatre currently accepts submissions via Google Forms. If you do not have a Google account or prefer not to submit through Google, you may email us for an application form to submit to us directly. DO NOT EMAIL YOUR script WITHOUT AN APPLICATION FORM. It will not be accepted.
