City of Craft, Call for Proposals

City of Craft Toronto Installation Programming
Call for Proposals
Deadline: August 31, 2009

City of Craft is looking for crafty artists and artsy crafters to create installations for this year’s City of Craft 2009, which will take place both in and around The Theatre Centre during the weekend of December 12-13, 2009. This year’s installation programming will be greatly expanded to include more installation artists and even more fantastic Queen Street West venues. For this year’s installations we hope to include a wide range of crafty approaches, which reflect the diversity and conceptual richness of contemporary craft practices. Several venues will be available to artists for City of Craft installation programming this year, from Queen West galleries, storefront windows and public spaces to the nooks and crannies of City of Craft’s fabulous and historic venue, The Theatre Centre. Some ideas for proposals could include (but are certainly not limited to!) the exploration of:

– crafty public interventions

– ‘digital craft’ (craft + video, craft + kinetics, etc)

– crafty performance

– textile-based installations

– participatory craft-based installations

To propose an installation, go to our online installation application:
