The Z is a creative incubator for new works, emerging artists, and unique artistic experiences. We accept submissions for new theater, dance, visual arts, music, and performance arts. Submissions can be for completed new works and performances or for works-in-progress seeking development resources. Project proposals that include engagement with or connection to our larger community are of particular interest.

Proposals are accepted year-round at .

Along with rolling submissions, we have targeted submission periods for new plays, plays in development, music, and Z Fringe performances.
