Artist Open Call: Going Out With A Bang At The Old Bronx Courthouse


As No Longer Empty’s residency and exhibition, ‘When You Cut Into The Present The Future Leaks Out’ at the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse is coming to an end as it enters its final month, an open call is being issued to local Bronx performance artists to end the exhibition with a big celebration.

Going Out With A Bang! will be held on Saturday, July 18th from 1PM to 7PM.

Since opening on April 23rd, thousands of Bronxites have celebrated the arts and our borough’s history through a wide array of exhibitions and programming.

Most importantly is the impact its had on local children and the youth who repeatedly come to the exhibition with their friends, thus demonstrating the need of such safe spaces in our communities and the importance of the arts in our communities.

Just take a look at organizations like Casita Maria, The Point CDC, Kips Bay and you can see the tremendous impact youth programs have in our communities.

That being said, No Longer Empty and Welcome2TheBronx are inviting Bronx performance artists (poets, dancers, writers, singers, etc) to make the last days special and an event to remember.

No Longer Empty is looking for projects that align with the current exhibition’s themes of justice, law, and the past and present histories of The Bronx.

The organization is also encouraging collaborations for the farewell event too.

In order to be considered for this event you must submit a sample of your work and/or a description of your idea(s) to and don’t forget to tell them Welcome2TheBronx sent ya!
