Since its formation, SCA has placed an emphasis on collaboration within the Austin theatre community. The Sidewalk Series takes that initiative a step further. One person or artistic team will be chosen to partner with SCA on a project that they would like to produce. Street Corner Arts will work directly with the artists to make that production possible by purchasing the rights to the play, securing a space in which it may be performed, and generally providing guidance and resources throughout the process. In doing so, we hope to nurture new/developing talent in the Austin area and serve as mentors to help artists fully realize their vision. The inaugural production of The Sidewalk Series will take place in August. We are excited about this new opportunity and look forward to playing our part in helping Austin foster and sustain the level of talent that has made the arts scene one of the most successful in the country.

THE SIDEWalk Series 2016 Recipients
The inaugural production of The Sidewalk Series was ORPHANS by Lyle Kessler helmed by the creative team of Aaron Johnson and Sarah Becker. This dynamic duo brought a powerful production to Austin in August 2016! For more information about their production, click on the poster below.
"Earlier this Spring, Street Corner Arts selected Aaron Johnson and native Austinite Sarah Kimberly Becker to helm this debut production of their new Sidewalk Series. The new program mentors promising Austin theatre-makers in producing and fully realizing a production. If this debut effort is any indication of what the future of this program holds, Austin is in for a real theatrical treat." -Frank Benge, BroadwayWorld
