Thank you for your interest in The Democracy Cycle’s 2024 Open Call. 

Over a 5-year period, The Democracy Cycle – a collaboration between the Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC NYC) and Galvan Initiatives – will commission and develop 25 new performing arts works across the fields of theater, dance, music, opera, and multidisciplinary performance that explore themes related to the nature, practice, and experience of democracy, particularly as it is practiced in the United States. Each commissioned project will receive $30,000 USD to create the new work and an additional $30,000 in support of the work's development (research, readings, workshops etc.).
