Orange County Arts Council and LEGOLAND NY are teaming up for a celebration of the arts during September 2022. This opportunity provides a platform for selected artists, performers, musicians and audiences to connect with local artists.

We are currently seeking submissions from Orange County artists to participate in this pilot initiative. This form may be used to submit for presenting arts proposals including dance, theater, interactive arts projects, music OR another category that we have not included here that you believe would engage the audiences at LEGOLAND NY through creativity. 

STIPENDS

Artists selected to participate in the program will receive a MINIMUM stipend of $800.00 and four comp park tickets, per weekend. Additional Fees may be available for larger groups. You are able to request a higher stipend, should your arts engagement proposal require, but not more than $5,000. Most of the selected proposals will be within the $800- $1,500 range and cost/value will be considered in project selection.

TIMELINE

Proposal Deadline: Open through August 15th

Proposals are received on a rolling basis. Proposals submitted sooner have a greater likelihood of being selected.

After receiving your proposal, we may request a follow up phone call or zoom meeting to ask additional questions about your presenting arts proposal.

Rehearsal Dates:

If selected, we offer presenting artists with a preview of the spaces that performances will take place as well as an opportunity for a rehearsal during LEGOLAND non-operational hours.
