Calls for Artists & Opportunities
DE-CONSTRUKT [projekts] is looking for artists, musicians, performers, activists, volunteers and organizers to participate in a fundraiser event for RDJ Refugee Shelter, the only shelter in NYC specifically for homeless asylum seekers and refugees at our studio in Red Hook.
 
RDJ Shelter provides 8 guests with a 6-month stay while they wait for asylum or for work authorization, and link them to the employment, legal, and language resources they need to thrive in their new home. Visit http://rdjrefugeeshelter.org for more information.
 
Send an email to projekts@de-construkt.com detailing your proposed participation, include details of availability, requirements, a short personal statement and bio. 
 
In partnership with the School of the Apocalypse (SoA) and Social Emergency Response Center (SERC). DE-CONSTRUKT [projekts] is the artistic arm of DE-CONSTRUKT design studio. We develop projects with local and international artists that support the cross polination of ideas and experimentation among cultural diverse artists and audiences.

Artists have opportunity to produce new works individually or collaboratively, with a focus on experimentation. DE-CONSTRUKT [projekts] provides space to create temporal work and encourages the formation of new networks. Our interest is in process rather than final outcomes. We serve to support new ideas and new ways of expression to share with the local community at large and abroad. Include studio rental and artist residency program.
