Apply with an outside-of-the-box idea. 

Have an idea or work you want to pitch that doesn’t quite fall into one of the opportunities above, but still might be a great fit for New Works? Many current programs at New Works grew out of a conversation with a community member in direct response to an identified need for a unique programming opportunity. This is an open space to start a conversation. Email us at with “2023-24 Out of the Box Idea” in your subject line.
