Diamond Wave is proud to announce the third iteration of THEYFRIEND, a festival dedicated to uplifting and supporting nonbinary performing artists.
This year, we will commission new time-based work from three featured artists and showcase
existing work from diverse nonbinary performers locally and internationally.
Three Featured Artists will receive $1,500 to create new work that reflects and centers nonbinary identity. These artists will also receive developmental support from advisors Edgar Fabián Frías, KB Boyce and Artistic Director Kevin Seaman, and constructive, artist-centered feedback from invited community members at a work-in-progress event.
Participating Artists selected to showcase existing work will receive a stipend and be invited to engage in developmental social events with other festival participants to expedite relationships amongst nonbinary performers.
Application Deadline: Fri, Jul 15
Performance Dates: Wed-Sat, Nov 16-19
