BE A PART OF OUR EXCITING NEW INITIATIVE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH:

THE CALGARY ANIMATED OBJECTS SOCIETY (CAOS) &

This project supports artists in the presentation of new works while actively engaging with the public and creating new and exciting opportunities for audience engagement.

The works themselves should be:

In addition to the performance of the piece, each artist will participate in an ‘public engagement’ week within the duration of the project which will consist of:

  • Working in a public space at Contemporary Calgary for 4 hours in a manner that allows the public to gain insight into the creation process

  • Engage in video and social media spotlights highlighting you and your work

APPLICATION

To apply, please submit the following:
