Opportunity: Art City’s Request For Proposals for 2011 Guest Artist Series (Winnipeg)

10 08 2010

Art City invites artists to submit proposals to lead workshop-based art projects at our studio in 2011.

Art City is located in West Broadway, a culturally diverse and densely populated neighbourhood in the heart of Winnipeg’s inner city. Art City is open free-of-charge and drop-in to anyone who would like to take part, engaging an average of 25 participants per evening. The majority of those who come to Art City are youth between the ages of 6 and 13 years. Older youth, adults, and seniors also regularly participate in Art City programs.

Selected guest artists will be supported in developing, managing, and facilitating their projects by a team of experienced Art City staff and volunteers. The standard guest artist format is a 5-day period, Monday to Friday, 3:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Artists will receive $1,400.00 for the one-week project. Travel and accommodation for selected visiting artists will be provided by Art City.

In addition to this format, Art City also invites proposals presenting alternative community art projects and for-mats to be included in our 2011 Guest Artist Series. Submission Deadline: August 23, 2010 (postmarked) (submitted by Cam Forbes, Executive Director, Art City)
