Open Set 2022-2023

MoMath's performing arts contest

Make math your muse!  MoMath is now accepting submissions for its annual mathematical performance arts competition, Open Set.  Compose a song, write a poem, juggle, spin plates — all acts with a connection to mathematics are welcome! 

The winners will be announced and the winning acts presented at an in-person event in New York City.  Check back later by visiting after the application window closes for an announcement of the special event.

Please note: works should be suitable for sharing with a general audience.  All submissions must be in English, and artists may submit up to three works.
