Tiny Circus Summer Session :: Community, Collaboration, Stop-Motion Animation

Tiny Circus Summer Session :: Community, Collaboration, Stop-Motion Animation | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Tiny Circus is a community-based collaborative art project that uses stop-motion animation to make and tell stories. Our animations are simple and accessible, as they have been created with a broad audience in mind. The short films we create with groups of all ages are projected in public spaces from a vintage airstream trailer, a rolling magic lantern. We hope to inspire audiences to reconsider the ways that we use assumptions, beliefs and storytelling to order our world. During the Summer Session we take a break from travel and intensive workshops and work together in Grinnell, Iowa on as-of-yet unfathomed projects – animation and collaboration will be central to our work, as well as envisioning new ways to communicate stories and ideas. Our 2012 summer session will run from June 15 to July 15 in Grinnell, Iowa. We are looking for both short and long term participants with varied skills and an interest in collaborative community art creation. No specific experience is necessary. Each participant pays $10/day; this covers food (much from our own garden), stay in a wonderful big old house, and materials. If you are interested in circusing this summer, please download and fill out the Summer Participant Application Form with your availability and anticipated length of stay. Email the form and a resume to tinycircus@gmail.com with “Summer Participant Applicant” in the subject line. We'll contact you by email to set up a phone interview.
