Sound Transit Art Program
Watch this space for upcoming deadlines
For the past several years, the Sound Transit Art Program (STart), Tacoma-based producer Darryl Crews, and STart artist in residence Sarah Kavage have been developing a music and audio program focused on South King County. The program will highlight the many cultures and communities in this dynamic part of the region, feature artists and musicians living and working in South King County, and connect transit riders with the places they are traveling through in advance of the forthcoming light rail extension to Federal Way.
The program will launch with a live performance space at Angle Lake Light Rail Station. The space will host a series of free performances featuring artists form the region. The space will also be available to host community events.
To make this happen, STart will be looking for…
- Vendors (firms, teams, or collaboratives) that can procure rental equipment (lighting, stage, sound equipment, etc) and set the space up as temporary performance venue.
- Vendors that can manage the space, including working with STart and a community advisory panel on the programing, and then managing the booking, promotion, and staffing of the events.
- A vendor could apply for one or both of these roles.
- Community advisory panel members. These will be paid roles to help direct the programming and ensure that the space meets its community-focused mission.
STart will be putting out a request for proposals in the next several weeks for the management and build out of the space, but you can start thinking now about how you might use your talents and join with your colleagues to participate in some way in the activation of this space. SoCoCulture will update this post as more information becomes available.
