Sidewalk Festival of Performing Arts is an outdoor celebration of Detroit's alternative and independent performing arts scene. Sidewalk's mission is to promote visual and performing arts in Detroit by transforming public, unique and under-used property into non-traditional performance venues. Sidewalk stimulates pedestrian traffic and engagement in unique Metro-Detroit places by repurposing space for live visual and performing arts.
Sidewalk is seeking innovative works of dance, theater, music, spoken word, and installation. Pieces should be specifically created for outdoor, non-traditional performance space, celebrating the architecture, culture and artistry of Detroit.
