This August, Scarborough comes alive with live performances, an arts market, outdoor film screenings, kids’ activities, food trucks, and more! All of it is part of Alive with Art, a festival of Scarborough’s creativity, presented by Scarborough Arts.

The family-friendly, multi-weekend festival will animate two Scarborough spaces: Scarborough Museum at Thomson Memorial Park, from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM on Saturday, August 19; and Harrison Properties, from 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM on Saturday, August 26 through a showcase of Scarborough’s most talented community of artists. Everyone is invited to enjoy, experience, and participate in an array of FREE arts and entertainment in your backyard!

“Community events and festivals are vital to our communities as they celebrate, showcase, and explore the diversity and creative pulse of neighbourhoods. There is a lot of love and care that go into planning and executing these festivals mainly because the feat requires authentic collaboration between the artists, the presenting and partner organizations, and the broader community,” states Jen D. Fabico, Program Director at Scarborough Arts. “Alive with Art is no different! We’ve put together a whole slate of activities—from visual art, performing arts, literature, to crafts—in collaboration with the Scarborough community. There’s something for everyone regardless of your interest, age, or background.”

In addition, we are also announcing our fall season programming at Harrison Properties on August 26. Be the first to learn more about and sign up for our SA Suite of Programs for Fall 2017; find out more about Healthy Arts for Seniors, our new photography and storytelling program; and get to meet the new groups and collectives that are part of the 2nd year of SA Together, our free arts residency program.

Call for Emerging Artists / Appel aux artistes émergents : Elemental Festival 2017 (Manitoulin Island, ON)

Call for Emerging Artists – Elemental Festival 2017
Deadline: May 31st, 2017

4elements Living Arts welcomes proposals from emerging artists who would like to participate in this year’s Elemental Festival in Kagawong | Gaagigewang on Mnidoo Mnising |Manitoulin Island.

Elemental Festival is a site-specific multi-arts gathering that occurs annually during the salmon run in the fall. Our small village centers around the Kagawong River that runs over Bridal Veil Falls and empties into Mudge Bay at the northern side of the island. Billings Township has a population of approximately 500 year- round residents, living in a stunning northern Ontario location, on the North Channel of Lake Huron. Its closest neighbouring community is M’Chigeeng First Nation, one of six First Nation Territories on Manitoulin Island.

This year, we invite proposals for temporary sculptural installations, film/new media works and writing, that consider questions of land, and land-use history. We are particularly interested in the relations between the land, environmental change, and reconciliation given the impact of settlement, forestry, farming, and Treaty history, on Manitoulin Island in particular. How has colonization shaped how we understand the land? What are relations between environmental issues and Treaties? How do we re/claim land through land-based practices, art and art-making? Festival engagements will encourage consideration of the relations between land, environment/environmental change and reconciliation; they will acknowledge the important role of the many cultural communities within and adjacent to Billings Township: the French, the English, and the First Nations (Ojibwe, Odaawaa and Pottawottami).

With the support from federal Canada 150 funding, 4elements and Billings Township will see 7 permanent public sculptures and 40 heritage plaques installed throughout the Township this year, creating a ‘Billings Art and Heritage Trail’. Six artists have been chosen via an extensive community engaged selection process; the 7th sculpture will be designed via a 4elements’ facilitated community collaborative design process. All permanent works will be installed by end of summer 2017 and will be ‘unveiled’ during Elemental Festival.

The emerging artist(s) selected from this call are asked to enter into a dialogue with one of the new permanent works as well as the curatorial theme, to challenge the idea that permanent public installations are static. Rather, we propose that the permanent works present entry points into a complex, multi-layered discussion and should act as provocations for discussion to be picked up and carried forward by community members, and in this case, the selected emerging artist(s). For further information about our village, the curatorial theme, or the selected permanent sculptures to respond to email: patricia@4elementslivingarts.org.

The selected emerging artists will receive an artist honorarium of $1000, plus accommodation if non-local. Artists must be able to attend the festival and arrive in time to complete installation a day prior to the festival opening. All applications are welcome and in particular, Francophone and First Nations artists are encouraged to get in touch.

Festival Dates: Sep 28 – Oct 1
Location: Kagawong | Gaagigewang, Manitoulin Island | Mnidoo Mnising

Application requirements:
Interested emerging artists can submit the following items attached as a single .pdf with the subject line ‘Emerging Artist Proposal – EF 2017’ to patricia@4elementslivingarts.org
1. Full name, address, and contact info; website if you have one
2. A brief project proposal (1 page or less).
3. A brief artist statement (1 paragraph).
4. Artist CV (2 pages or less)
5. Image list, stating title, date and any other relevant details.
Please also submit the following, separate from the .pdf:
6. Maximum of 5 good quality images or short video clip of your work with a corresponding image list (images should be no larger than 1MB)
7. $10 application fee via e-transfer or cheque mailed to the 4e office. This goes directly toward supporting the festival. If this is a barrier for you, please get in touch.

Appel aux artistes émergents – Elemental Festival 2017
Date d’échéance : 31 mai 2017

4elements Living Arts invite tous les artistes émergents qui désirent participer au Elemental Festival de cette année à Kagawong | Gaagigewang on Mnidoo Mnising |Île Manitoulin, à faire leur demande.

Elemental Festival est un rassemblement artistique annuel se déroulant à l’automne pendant la migration anadrome des saumons. Notre petit village se trouve le long de la Rivière Kagawong, connectée aux chutes Bridal Veil et se terminant dans la baie Mudge au nord de l’île. Le canton de Billings a une population d’environ 500 habitants permanents, vivant dans un lieu exceptionnel au nord de l’Ontario dans le chenal nord du lac Huron. La communauté la plus proche est la Première nation M’Chigeeng, un des six Territoires des Premières Nations sur l’Île Manitoulin.

Cette année, nous acceptons des propositions d’artistes pour des installations sculpturales temporaires ainsi que des œuvres cinématographiques/nouveaux médias et d’écriture, qui discutent de la terre et de l’historique de l’utilisation des sols. Nous sommes particulièrement intéressés dans les liens entre la terre, les changements environnementaux et la réconciliation, étant donné l’impact de la colonisation, de la foresterie, de l’agriculture et de l’historique des traités sur l’Île Manitoulin. Comment la colonisation a-t-elle façonné la manière dont nous voyons la terre ? Quels sont les liens entre les préoccupations environnementales et les Traités ? Comment pouvons-nous réclamer la terre par le biais de pratiques axées sur la terre, les arts et la création artistique ? Les engagements au Festival encourageront la prise en compte des liens entre la terre, les changements environnementaux et la réconciliation. Ils permettront de reconnaître l’importance du rôle des trois communautés culturelles présentes autour et à l’intérieur du canton de Billings : La communauté française, anglaise et des Premières Nations (Ojibwe, Odaawaa et Pottawottami).

Cette année, avec le soutien financier du Fonds Canada 150, 4elements et le canton de Billings pourront présenter 7 sculptures publiques permanentes et 40 plaques commémoratives installées dans tout le canton, créant ainsi un sentier artistique et du patrimoine. Six artistes ont été choisis à l’aide d’un processus de sélection communautaire approfondi; la septième sculpture sera conçue par un processus de conception collaborative et communautaire élaboré par 4elements. Toutes les œuvres permanentes seront installées avant la fin de l’été 2017 et seront révélées pendant le Elemental Festival.

Les artistes émergents choisis par le biais de cette invitation seront demandés de rentrer en contact avec les nouvelles œuvres permanentes et le thème de l’œuvre pour contester l’idée que les installations publiques sont statiques. Au lieu de cela, nous proposons que les œuvres permanentes contiennent des points d’entrée et puissent entraîner des discussions complexes suffisamment pertinentes pour permette de faire réagir les membres de la communauté et les artistes émergents. Pour en savoir plus au sujet de notre village, du thème de l’œuvre ou des sculptures permanentes choisies, veuillez-nous envoyer un courriel à patricia@4elementslivingarts.org.

Les artistes émergents choisis recevront une récompense artistique et honorifique de 1 000 $, plus l’hébergement. Les artistes doivent être capables d’assister au festival et d’arriver à l’heure pour compléter l’installation une journée avant l’ouverture du festival. Toutes les demandes sont les bienvenues, et les artistes francophones et des Premières Nations sont encouragés à nous contacter.

Dates du festival : 28 septembre – 1 octobre
Lieux : Kagawong | Gaagigewang, Île Manitoulin | Mnidoo Mnising

Exigences relatives à la demande :
Les artistes émergents intéressés peuvent soumettre les exigences ci-dessous en un un seul fichier PDF, avec comme objet « Proposition Artiste émergent – EF 2017 » à patricia@4elementslivingarts.org
1. Nom au complet, adresse et coordonnées; site web (le cas échéant)
2. Une brève description du projet proposé (1 page ou moins)
3. Un bref énoncé de la part de l’artiste (1 paragraphe).
4. Le CV de l’artiste (2 pages ou moins)
5. Une liste d’images, de titres, dates et de tout autre détail pertinent.
Veuillez également soumettre les éléments suivants dans un fichier PDF séparé :
6. Un maximum de 5 images de bonne qualité ou un petit film vidéo de votre travail avec une série d’images en rapport avec la vidéo (les images ne doivent dépasser 1Mb).
7. Les frais de dossier de 10 $ doivent être envoyés par transfert électronique ou par chèque au bureau de 4e. Ces frais seront utilisés pour financer le festival. Veuillez nous contacter si vous penser être dans l’impossibilité de payer ces frais de dossier.”
