Music, Art, Performance at 6BC
Would you like to present your creative work at 6BC Garden? 6BC provides a beautiful outdoor space --for free-- to
and other artists who want to present their work to an art-hungry East Village audience.
It's a great opportunity to audience-test new work, or experiment with the possibilities of performance in a natural setting. (Our library porch provides a fine covered stage but there are many other lovely spots in the garden you could use.)
A few guidelines:
- music must be acoustic/unamplified (we don't have power for amplification and we respect our neighbors)
- natural lighting only (for the same reasons)
- we need to protect our plants and structures
- the garden must stay open to the general public during your performance(that means short pieces that don't require intense audience concentration work best.)
- most performances are scheduled during garden open hours (Sat and Sun afternoons, Wed eves)
Within those guidelines, though, we encourage you to let your creativity reign.
We are also pleased to consider temporary art installations that harmonize with the aesthetic and purpose of the garden and can be secured in our public space.
