Categories:

',The Rendezvous with Madness Festival (RWM) is the first and largest art and mental health festival in the world, hosted each year by Workman Arts in Toronto, Canada. The festival presents local, national and international work exploring themes of mental health and/or addiction issues.

In summer 2020, Workman Arts will move from 651 Dufferin Street (our home for the past 10 years) to the brand new McCain Complex Care and Recovery Building at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). This world-class facility will feature a 300-seat auditorium that will be the new home for the Rendezvous with Madness Festival.

Installation and Performance at 651 Dufferin (Dufferin/Dundas)

The 2020 Rendezvous with Madness Festival will be our last at 651 Dufferin St. It has been the home of Rendezvous with Madness for the past 10 years and we will say our ‘goodbye’ by transforming the entire building into an art activation space that will last throughout the 11-day festival. The activation includes theatre, art, performance, dance, multi-media installation, films, media art, workshops, lectures, community conversations and everything in between.

Artists are asked to propose projects which creatively and effectively transform the space and allow audiences to engage with each other and the site. The work should address relevant mental health and/or addiction topics which centre people with lived experiences at their core.

Live performance at CAMH (1001 Queen St West)

The 2020 Rendezvous with Madness Festival will also be our first in the new 300 seat theatre at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (1001 Queen Street West). This site will feature our film series as well as our mainstage performance series.

Artists are asked to propose projects that have a running time of 60-90 minutes. Productions should include artists with lived experience of mental health and/or addiction issues.
