Performing Arts at Illinois LAB for Interdisciplinary Creativity Project Proposal

Beyond the public programming of the Krannert Center, the Performing Arts at Illinois share a commitment to interdisciplinary artistic exploration. Believing that creativity is a core human characteristic, we encourage participation across the entire campus and community.  The Performing Arts Lab seeks to facilitate the realization of artistic projects which fall outside of the regular season programming.

PAL encourages creative, innovative and re-imagined work, multi-disciplinarity, contribution to the University of Illinois research and creative mission, engagement with the broader community, the involvement of students, and the inclusion of people otherwise not fully integrated into the arts community.  If your project has any of these characteristics, please let us know about them in your description.

Please provide as much information as you can when describing your project.  Some answers may not be available or may not apply.
