Call for Artists!: Apply to be part of The PATCH Project (Toronto)

The PATCH Project provides artists with opportunities to exhibit their work in public – raising their profile while transforming Toronto’s streets.
We partner with landowners and developers to showcase the work of local artists around construction sites and get them the exposure they need to move their career in the arts forward.

PATCH can help YOU:

  • develop your portfolio
  • get paid for exhibiting your work
  • join a community of like-minded creative professionals
  • build a foundation for your career in Toronto’s cultural sector

Our city has millions of feet of construction hoarding (the walls that go up around construction sites) that can be the home for your next work of art (or the exhibition of your existing artwork)!

What is PATCH, and what do we do?
PATCH installs permanent and temporary art in underused spaces, like construction sites. We collaborate with local artists, landowners, and property developers to create an ongoing exhibition that not only beautifies the streetscape, but strengthens community ties around our installations. We:
identify potential sites for public art
recruit Toronto area artists of the highest calibre for site-specific work;
liaise between artists, property owners / developers, and construction companies to develop customized creative solutions that animate Toronto’s public realm; and
manage the logistics of making this all happen!

PATCH is a project of the STEPS Initiative, an award-winning public arts organization that builds the capacity of citizens to take action in creating more vibrant and connected communities. Since 2010, STEPS has led several large-scale public art installations (including the World’s Tallest Mural) through which they have engaged thousands of community members of all ages and received numerous awards.”

Call for Artists: Youth Arts Ambassadors Program (Ontario Culture Days)

Ontario Culture Days invites young and emerging professional artists in Ontario to submit proposals to the third annual cohort of the Youth Arts Ambassadors Program (YAAP).

Would you like to:

  • Produce a community-focused artwork as a part of an Ontario-wide Culture Days 2018 project?
  • Develop your professional practice in areas such as marketing, outreach and community arts practices?
  • Be mentored and supported by an established community host?
  • Connect with a broad network of arts leaders from your region, province and across Canada?

If so, we’d like to hear from you! Tell us how you will explore the potential of community arts to strengthen your own artistic practice and to grow audiences for your work.

YAAP is contingent upon the receipt of funding still to be announced. The following is a call for expressions of interest prior to an estimated project launch in late April 2018.

Youth Arts Ambassadors Program (YAAP)
In 2016, Ontario Culture Days launched a new initiative called the Youth Arts Ambassadors Program (YAAP). The program, aimed at fostering and supporting the next generation of community-engaged artists in our province, commissioned selected professional artists under 30 to create new works of art. The artworks were unveiled over the Culture Days weekend with a corresponding public program directed towards members of the artists’ communities. As YAAP enters its third year, we are looking to grow and develop this valuable initiative. In 2018, YAAP will increase its emphasis on the role of arts ambassadorship. YAAP artists will be partnered with local host organisations to develop outreach and programming initiatives that relate to the needs of their local communities. Alongside this relationship-building, Culture Days will provide the artists with educational resources to deepen their understanding of arts advocacy, arts marketing and program development. Combining the practical relationship building with a professional development component will provide participating artists with a valuable set of resources. This will help them as they reach out to their communities, act as ambassadors for local arts initiatives, and develop a successful YAAP program for the Culture Days weekend, September 28, 29 and 30, 2018. 2018:”
