Beet Street is seeking a wide-variety of talent to perform as part of the Streetmosphere program scheduled for May 11 – September 3, 2012. Being featured as a Streetmosphere performer is a great way to gain exposure for your artistic craft and engage with the Fort Collins community.
Streetmosphere is a weekend event to showcase our community’s unique artists, performers, and entertainers on the streets of Downtown Fort Collins. Performers range from musical acts, jugglers, and magicians to acting troupes, dancers, painters, and more. Streetmosphere takes place on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from May to September and is designed to reach a wide spectrum of audiences in the Downtown Fort Collins area.
Beet Street is excited to introduce a new expansion of Streetmosphere to south Fort Collins in Front Range Village! In addition to the 16-week downtown season, our community’s artists will perform for 8 weekends, Friday through Saturday from July 6 – August 26.
According to crowd count statistics gathered by Beet Street, Streetmosphere captured the attention of over 120,000 downtown patrons and showcased about 1,400 hours of performances in Downtown in 2011.
Performers must be able to engage with the general community. 2010 and 2011 Streetmosphere featured 80% of performers from Fort Collins and auditions are not just limited to Fort Collins residents. Beet Street will give priority to local performers but will also consider top-notch, quality artists beyond what is found locally.
Beet Street is now accepting applications for 2012. Streetmosphere applications must include a video and/or portfolio submission, not to exceed 4 minutes and 10 MB. The 2012 Streetmosphere online application form is available at www.BeetStreet.org. Applications must be submitted by January 30, 2012, before 5pm.
