Through a new initiative, the Salt Lake City Arts Council’s Finch Lane Gallery is opening its gallery spaces for short-term, interdisciplinary, community-oriented, and/or experimental projects. The goal of Finch Lane Flash Projects is to supplement resources for emerging to established individuals and groups by providing professional opportunities for those working in various arts and cultural practices. As a non-commercial space, Finch Lane Gallery is able to support a range of projects, artworks, and events to re-imagine the use of the Finch Lane Gallery spaces and to further community engagement in the arts by providing space, visibility, and an audience to share new works with. Individuals and groups are invited to take over the galleries with their various “flash” projects, which may vary in length from several minutes to several days during the allotted times.

How Flash Projects Work

Example Projects (but not limited to): Performances (dance, music, etc); interdisciplinary arts festivals; sound/audio works; fashion shows; literary events; workshops; experimental film screenings; community gatherings; multi-disciplinary panel discussions; short-term immersive art installations; research presentations; or other arts & culture related projects.

Resources: The Finch Lane Gallery can provide projects with gallery space, basic digital media technology (projector, media players, TV monitors), banquet tables, seating, pedestals, half-kitchen, and visibility on Salt Lake City Arts Council social media platforms. Finch Lane Flash Projects provides a $250 honorarium per project; applicants are responsible for all other associated costs and materials.

Space: *We recommend visiting the space to become familiar with it and determine if it’s appropriate for your project. The galleries are open Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm, and Tuesday until 8:30pm.

Additional Information: The Salt Lake City Arts Council will be responsible for the final selection of projects, social media and press releases, and providing access to the gallery and available on-site support during agreed upon hours. Each project will receive an honorarium of $250. For selected projects, project organizers will be asked to provide biographical materials, a project statement, and several images of similar works to be used for marketing purposes. Project organizers will be responsible for setup and breakdown of projects in the gallery. The Arts Council will provide basic media technology and tables/chairs as needed, but project organizers will be responsible for securing any additional resources. For large events, the project organizer is responsible for staffing the duration of the event. All projects must be approved by the Arts Council prior to their execution. The Arts Council reserves the right to make final decisions on which projects are appropriate for a gallery within a publicly funded space and may request alterations or cancel projects at its discretion.
