Open Proposals

Have an idea for a project or community event you think would be a good fit with Roman Susan? Tell us who you are, what you do, and the experience you want to share! In particular, we are seeking project proposals for new Navigations, site-responsive ANNEX collaborations, and event proposals for Movement Studies at Berger Park Cultural Center. Send a detailed outline in any format of your choice to proposals@romansusan.org.

Artist Honorariums

Selected proposals receive project honorariums, scaled to the duration of the project. Roman Susan is a W.A.G.E. Certified Institution, and all artist fees meet W.A.G.E. payment standards.

Annual deadlines are June 10 and December 10

All proposals are considered for the next calendar year. Following the submission deadlines, proposals are reviewed by community volunteers, and then selected by popular consensus among Roman Susan directors. Notification of the proposal status generally occurs within 50 days of the review deadlines.

Other Calls for Art and Participation

If you would be interested in volunteering to review incoming artist proposals in the future, please sign up at Proposal Review Volunteers. In addition, Roman Susan currently has the following calls for artist participation: Annotations & Inserts in public library spaces; streetview installations of Moving Image; and our AUX partners hold an open call for Performance Response.
