Movers & Shapers: A Dance Podcast

Hosted by Erin Carlisle Norton, Artistic Director of The Moving Architects
twitter // @ShapersPodcast
ADVERTISING:
1.  30-second advertising spots that can have any type of content you’d like to advertise.  We suggest including a website link spoken at the end of the spot (we will also link the advertisement to our ‘show notes’ page associated with the podcast).  30-seconds is approximately 75 words, give or take. Before submitting the language to us, we also suggest reading it aloud a few times for flow – we have found that reading and writing text often require different attentions to detail and flow.
30-second spot read on-air at beginning of 1 podcast: $35
30-second spot read on-air end of 1 podcast: $30
List of upcoming deadlines for 2017 podcasts:
January 24th for podcast air date of January 31
February 7th for podcast air date of February 14
February 21st for podcast air date February 28
March 7th for podcast air date of March 14
March 21st for podcast air date of March 28
INTERVIEWS:
1.  Interviews generally take place at 280 Gibney Dance.  However, if you have a quiet and small office space available, I am able to come to Rutgers for any potential taping.  Taping times that work best for me are generally evenings and weekends, but we could work together on setting a time that works for everyone.  We look to set-up interviews a minimum of 4 weeks before an air date (you may request an air date as well if needed). Interviews can be up to 2-people and follow an autobiographical framework, though can easily stray from the timeline and focus on projects/interests/anecdotes/etc.  Each interview is edited so all involved can find more comfort in the medium, and they are generally around 60 minutes.
1 hour interview: $200

Call for Volunteers: Disability Arts NYC Convening

Dance/NYC is reaching out to members of our thriving volunteer community such as yourself in order to find eager and enthusiastic volunteers for our January 28th event: Disability Arts NYC Convening.

When: Saturday, January 28, 2017, 1p.m. – 4:30p.m.
Where: The New School Starr Foundation Hall, U L102 63 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003

REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER! https://www.getfeedback.com/r/OL1pPiPv

Event Description:
In the last few months, a group of NYC-based artists, activists, and academics have formed the Disability/Arts/NYC Task Force. DANT is forming around a unique moment for disability arts and artistry. We are witnessing bold and brilliant artwork across genres and disciplines that take up disability as a profound aesthetic and analytic value. And yet, there are profound and persistent obstacles that limit the possibilities for disabled artists and artistry. DANT is in the process of naming this unique moment and developing a movement for disability arts to thrive in New York City.

As part of this ongoing work, we are hosting a groundbreaking convening that will bring together disabled artists, members of the broader arts community, and representatives from some of NYC’s city agencies. We will use the convening to strengthen the coalition of disabled artists and allies while also beginning to craft a disability/arts platform for future policies and practices in NYC.

This event includes Week-Of volunteer and Day-Of volunteer opportunities:

Day-Of volunteers volunteer for a minimum of four hours and attend the event. Volunteers are typically scheduled in work stations, including production areas such as registration, guest relations, photography, and communications.

Week-Of volunteers come in for a total of 9 hours over two separate days. One five-hour shift takes place either the day before or the day after the event and is flexible upon availability. Tasks include: support with administration, production, media editing, and post-production. The second four-hour shift takes place on the day of the event. Tasks include: set-up, registration, guest relations, photography, and communications.

Both disabled and non-disabled people are encouraged to participate and volunteer at this event. All volunteers will receive an orientation and a NEW YORKER FOR DANCE TSHIRT.

Feel free to contact volunteer@dance.nyc if you have any questions.
