Call for Artists: Slide Slam

The Patchogue Arts Council is excited to announce 2018-2019 Slide Slam program. Slide Slam will feature selected artists presenting their work for five minutes each. Artists will have the opportunity to network with special guests including curators and arts professionals seeking new artists. This program is part of PAC’s 2018 imPACtful connections: Island wide networking for creatives and supported in-part with public funding provided by Suffolk County.

This special programing will consist of five Slide Slam events serving as a catalyst to help unify LI’s creative clusters by creating numerous substantial opportunities for artists through collaboration with other organizations, curators, collectors, arts professionals, and collectives.

As a result we will strengthen the collective artist presence on Long Island like our neighboring arts communities such as Brooklyn/ Dumbo, Hudson & the like. Slide Slam hosts will include, Patchogue Arts Council & Muñeca Arthouse, Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery, Heckscher Museum of Art, Haven Art Gallery and an East End location TBA.

Are you ready for your five minutes of fame?
