Free City 2015: Being Here

Call for Proposals: Deadline March 16

Free City 2015: Being Here invites work that calls to mind the presence of the individual in a specific time and place, exploring the effects of new media and technology on experience. Planned for the 4th of July weekend on the Chevy Commons in downtown Flint, Free City 2015 expects its biggest attendance in the three years it has been produced. Since the first festival, the Chevy Commons has attracted nearly $3 million in grants to support its transformation into a year‐round public space.

Send proposals for projects in any media to by March 16.

Proposals can be sent as a single-page document with 100-200 word description accompanied by an image and budget.

Free City is a large‐scale public art festival that temporarily reclaims the former Flint‐Chevy manufacturing site along the Flint River for public use. The festival features dozens of music, dance, and theater performances, art installations, and hands‐on workshops – all free and open to the public – to reconnect residents to the Chevy Commons site and its future potential. A critical mass of temporary activities turns the abandoned industrial property into an active public space, highlighting the ongoing transformation of Flint.
