Northside Art // Open Call for Artists // June 15 – 17

I’m producing the art component to Northside Festival which in few years time will oust SXSW as THE epicenter of multiculture. Their entrepreneurship component will be particularly exciting this year but I encourage all of you to focus on the art and check out some artist studios, marvel at interactive works during Williamsburg Walks, and check out the group exhibition. Until then, please help spread the word and if you’re an artist in North Brooklyn, sign up or lose.

About Northside Festival
Northside Festival is NYC’s largest and most accessible discovery festival. Hundreds of bands, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, innovators, and over 80,000 fans converge on Brooklyn over eight days to witness the most incredible showcase of “what’s next” in music, film, entrepreneurship, and art. Check out past photos and videos.

Northside Art
Northside Art is a three day event celebrating a burgeoning art scene in North Brooklyn. It serves to create a collaborative platform for artists through exhibitions, performances, panels, and our signature open studios. Our goal is to build a creative platform in which all members of the community can foster and contribute to a support system that encourages the sharing of ideas and relationships.
