There are several ways that festivals (both fringe festivals and other NYC festivals) determine the line-up of artists / shows for their festival. Over the next weeks we’ll be exploring some of these methods as a part of the blank canvas project.
In 2013, Laura Collins-Hughes wrote a piece for the New York Times about why we were an adjudicated festival (and a bit about our adjudication process). The story also gets into how controversial this decision was at the time.
More about the process we’ve used to determine our participants in an upcoming post!
