Portraits 2016 Call for Student Performers – Deadline: Monday, May 9, 2016

The NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Programs (CMEP) is excited to announce we’re running an active casting call for students and recent graduates who are interested in performing/participating individually or in groups for NYU Portraits over the summer.

This year’s repertoire will pay attention to students’ experiences in and beyond the classroom, emphasizing the student experience at NYU. Space for both positive and challenging experiences will be equally valued for our experiences regarding institutional access and representation are as multifaceted as we are. Help us share our stories by telling yours.

You need not have a concrete production sketched out at the time you express interest by submitting your Google Form; in fact, we encourage you to collaborate with our team when you are conceptualizing your performance!
