Call for Artists - The City of Toronto Artist in Residence Program

The City of Toronto is embarking on a pilot year of creating a residency program that sees a professional contemporary artist working within a City of Toronto department. This live panel discussion will include representatives of the 3 shortlisted City of Toronto divisions: Court Services, Parks Development & Capital Projects, and Urban Forestry. This is an opportunity for artists interested in the AIR program to ask questions to help determine their interest and develop their submission.    

For interested artists:      

·         EOI Submissions are due December 13.      

·         Budget: $100,000 +HST ($60,000 artist fee plus minimum $40,000 project production budget).      

·         Artists are asked to submit Artist Statements and qualifications specific to the key issue identified by departments . The selection panel will select an Artist applicant and host department matched by artistic concern and departmental interest.
