Since the summer of 2016, the Gardiner Museum’s Community Arts Space program has acted as an incubator for arts-based community projects. Inspired by the transformative aspects of ceramics, both real and metaphorical, the Community Arts Space initiates dialogue and the hands-on creation of equitable and inclusive cultural initiatives that engage local communities.
The Gardiner’s 307-square-metre third-floor special exhibition hall and outdoor plaza are open to proposals for the summer of 2018, from July 3 to August 31. We’re inviting applications from cultural and community organizations, collectives, presenters, artists, curators, designers, makers, architects, organizers, and producers that outline what they would do in the special exhibition hall that relates to our Community Arts Space theme for a two-week period . The possibilities are endless—dance, music or theatre performances, workshops, community arts outreach, installations, performance art—our space is yours for the taking.
The Gardiner will be holding an information session to highlight what to expect for this year’s program (updated guidelines, curatorial thematic deadlines, etc.) as well as a tour of the exhibition spaces. RSVP requested but not required.
