This year’s Baltimore Theatre Community Annual Auditions are back, and we hope better than ever. 

We have selected the dates of Saturday, August 23, and Monday August 25.

Center Stage – The Head Theater 700 N. Calvert Street Baltimore, MD 21202

AEA Members – FREE / Non-Members $10 Auditors – $20 per theater**

Auditions will be held from 10 am-5 pm on Saturday, August 23, and from 6 pm to 9 pm on Monday, August 25, in The Head Theater (4th floor) at Center Stage. On Saturday, there will be a musical accompanist from 12pm-1pm and 2pm-3pm for anyone wishing to sing as part of their audition.

As you know, these auditions have always been an important opportunity for both the theaters and the artists involved.  With so many artistic leaders and actors participating, it’s always a wonderful time for new talent to be discovered, and to discover new opportunities.

We are seeking actors of all ages, both non-AEA and AEA, from around the state to audition. And we hope to have over 40 Auditors from local and regional theatres.

You can register online now at

Also, if you would be interested in volunteering to support the auditions, do let us know! There will be a call for help sorting headshots, timing auditions, setting up food, etc.

Please help us promote! We have less turnaround time this year than in the past, so we need your help to get the word out, and make these auditions a huge success.  We encourage you to share the event on social media, email it to your members, and help us spread the word!

Sponsored by NICHE magazine, the NICHE Awards program began in 1989 to celebrate excellence and innovation in American and Canadian fine craft. Artists are recognized in both professional and student divisions.

Nearly 2,000 entries are received each year from professional and student craft artists from across the U.S. and Canada. Each year, a prestigious panel of judges is selected by the editors of NICHE magazine, including gallery owners, guild and museum directors, curators, craft industry experts and arts advocates.PicMonkey-Collage2.png-1024x409[1]

After the judging process is complete, and counts are tallied, the top-scoring pieces—5 in each category—become NICHE finalists. Out of these five, the highest-scoring piece in each category wins the NICHE award.

Winners are announced at a special ceremony held during the American Made Show in January.

Winners will receive an awards certificate, trophy, a listing on the NICHE Awards website and a listing in NICHE magazine.

Hot Walls

In the HOT WALLS series, Luminous Intervention aims to work with Baltimore artists to create video projected murals to be presented in Baltimore neighborhoods. All artists are welcome to apply. Using our large-scale video projection equipment, we will work with artists to turn walls or buildings into animated surfaces full of light, color and local creativity. Digital skills are a plus, but not required. We are happy to work with artists to turn non-digital visual artwork into a digital video projection.  We encourage applications from artists of any age (youth to elders and all in between).

As members of Luminous Intervention, we want to share our digital video equipment and meet other artists in Baltimore.  We have found that large-scale projections are attention grabbing and can gather people together for sharing stories, envisioning creative futures, inspiring critical discussion, and voicing concerns. We believe that the arts should reflect all of our lived experiences, not just the experiences of those connected to powerful institutions.

Luminous Intervention can offer a modest stipend to participating artists. We will also contribute our time and labor for running the projection equipment.  Artists will choose where in Baltimore to project their HOT WALLS artwork.  Artists are encouraged to project in their own neighborhoods, but that is not required.

We will accept applications on a rolling basis starting July 6, 2014.
HOT WALLS will begin presenting artists’ projections in September 2014.

The simple online application can be found at

Saturday, July 26 at 2pm at School 33 Arts Center (1427 Light St)

What the HOT WALLS might look like:

* paintings or drawings made into a digital animation or light-mural

* “movie night” with neighborhood residents, complete with popcorn

* candlelit vigils for important local figures from the past

* growing projected flowers onto an otherwise abandoned lot

* dance performances that include a projected partner

* emphasizing the importance of historical locations

* your digital, or non-digital, artwork

* poetry text, scrolling on a wall or building

* your video art scaled up to building-size

About Luminous Intervention

Luminous Intervention is an artist collective that uses large-scale video projections in public spaces to highlight social and economic issues. We formed in 2012 to creatively support local and national activism, provoke critical dialogue, and interject powerful imagery onto familiar city edifices. Building facades, bridges, and other urban structures become backdrops for temporary video projections. Over the last two years, we have completed almost thirty different projections.

One of our aims is to collaborate with artists and community activist groups to support and amplify social justice messages, such as demanding fair labor practices, dismantling rape culture, banning armed drones, ending the school to prison pipeline, and creating alternatives to unfair development. We also work towards supporting neighborhood health and relationships through documenting community stories. In the past we have collaborated with the United Workers, Baltimore Redevelopment Action Coalition for Empowerment, FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture, Communities for All Ages, Witness Against Torture, Backbone Campaign, Johns Hopkins Human Rights Working Group, and many others.
