On the night of January 29th, SLOUP will happen all over St. Louis, but everyone will be reading THE SAME PROPOSALS. YOUR PROPOSALS. Never has it been less important to win, as the exposure to your idea will be so diverse and exciting, it HARDLY MATTERS who ...gets the cashola. Of course, making money for your art practices is the whole idea, but we cant give you the $$ if you don't APPLY. This particular Sloup is self-consciously about building a larger sloup community so the grants and the idea exchanges keep growing this year. So we are inviting and imploring you to write it down bravely to win or lose big THIS MONTH. Not next month. Not the month after.
I ran into you at the grocery store and you had this really good idea and you said "Maybe I'll apply to Sloup." There is no one more ready than you!
Consider: No artist is too "established" for Sloup, and no artist is not artist enough.
Check back over the next few weeks to watch as more and more people and places commit to host a sloup, and think about all the small and large communities that will come together that night to think about your artistic futures.
Proposals are due at midnite on the 28th!
