As UCF Celebrates the Arts embarks upon its fifth year, the festival Steering Committee is looking to showcase the best from UCF students and faculty and bring attention to our year-round activities on campus and in the community. The anticipated event dates are April 5-14, 2019.
The committee is now seeking proposals for innovative and collaborative arts activities for inclusion in the 2019 festival. The ideas for these events can come out of classes; outside projects by faculty, students or alumni; or collaborative works associated with the university. Deadline for proposal submissions is Friday, September 21, 2018, at 5 p.m. Apply at http://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eDvXGdvF0MmnANv
Some events are already on the schedule and may be used for inspiration. Proposals that tie into the scheduled events may be given additional consideration. 2019 events include:
- Titanic, a musical by Maury Yeston
- A concert by the Flying Horse Big Band and guests
- The NEA Big Read featuring “Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel
- The National Young Composers Challenge and Emerging Composers Challenge
- A new musical that takes place in Puerto Rico during a hurricane
Central to the event’s mission is:
- Showcasing the work and talents of students and faculty from UCF and the College of Arts & Humanities
- Presenting events that are interdisciplinary within or beyond the walls of CAH
- Presenting 1-3 key events that are large in scope, that will attract attention nationally or regionally and will be major audience draws
- Presenting innovative, high-quality events and happenings that are unexpected, new or out-of-the-box
