3/27 UPDATE: While we can’t hold Work In Real Time in person, we’re reconfiguring the program to be in-real-time, from home! The need to fund creative projects is more urgent than ever, and we’re thrilled that we’ll be able to award $1,500 to in April and May. Stay tuned for a tweaked application, date and presentation format.


Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a sculptor were on Shark Tank? Or a contemporary dancer were on America’s Got Talent? Work In Real Time is a monthly salon-meets-project incubator that will take place in the atrium of UB Center for the Arts.

Every month artists across disciplines will present their works in progress to a panel of judges and, at the end of the evening, expertise and funding will be awarded to worthy projects. Audience participation is highly encouraged, and snacks and beverages will be provided.

Work In Real Time is a public platform to present developing work and to empower artists from UB and the Buffalo community to implement new directions, practices, or collaborations in their artistic ideas. Work In Real Time aims to nurture the growth and development of interdisciplinary works by UB students in the arts and foster a dialogue among UB, Buffalo, and visiting artists to enable cross-pollination between disciplines, sensibilities, and cities.

This program is organized by UB Arts Collaboratory in partnership with UB Center for the Arts, the Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art, Kyla Kegler (MFA ‘18) and UB faculty and students.
