The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery is seeking project proposals from Canadian artists on the theme of craftivism for a potential major solo or group exhibition.

We are looking for large scale projects in the craft of ceramics, glass or copper enameling that push the boundaries of contemporary craft and installation art. We want your wild ideas and collaborations. Surprise us with something powerful that will make a statement and command attention when installed in one of our Galleries. Proposals should engage with current Canadian social issues to start conversations, education, and sharing towards the greater good. These proposals will be considered for potential exhibitions in future programming seasons at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery (Waterloo, Ontario), with the possibility to circulate across the country.

Projects can include community involvement, workshops, or other initiatives. The resulting exhibition can extend beyond the walls of the gallery into the community, public spaces, and more. We’re looking for truly innovative approaches to contemporary exhibitions. Show us your creativity and vision for an exhibition that brings the community together both physically and visually.

As Ele Carpenter writes in Activist Tendencies in Craft: “In these practices the social, performative and critical discourse around the work is central to its production and dissemination. Here craft is not simply a luddite desire for the localized handmade, but a social process of collective empowerment, action, expression and negotiation.” (Arnolfini Journal, April 2010)

This is an ongoing call. The Curatorial Committee will begin selecting proposals in October 2021, for exhibitions starting in 2023. A future cutoff date will be shared via our social media and website with advance notice.

In collaboration with the City of Toronto, the Waterfront Business Improvement Area, and the Toronto Downtown West Business Improvement Area, The Bentway is seeking Expression of Interest (EOI) submissions from professional artists and/or designers interested in participating in The Waterfront ReConnect Design Competition.

This EOI is open to all teams (hereinafter called “Proponents”) with experience in the required disciplines and having the required resources, as further described herein.

Designed for a car-centric era, Toronto’s Gardiner Expressway has long served as a street-level barrier between the City’s core and a blossoming waterfront. As the city recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking what if this obstacle could be reimagined as a vital point of connection? This presents an exciting opportunity to build upon the larger waterfront revitalization effort and Gardiner rehabilitation project. Furthermore, it is an opportunity to develop an inclusive process, involving multiple public and private stakeholders, and demonstrate the potential of the Under Gardiner to become an integral part of the larger public realm.

The Bentway is seeking input from professional Canadian artists and designers, who will be engaged in the development of creative interventions that re-imagine the experience of the intersections for pedestrians and cyclists at grade at two key intersections under the Gardiner – York Street and Simcoe Street. Advancing the work of the Waterfront ReConnect program, these interventions will further demonstrate what the potential of these under Gardiner spaces could be, setting a trajectory over the next decade.

The goal of the competition is to create more welcoming and accessible connections to Toronto’s Central Waterfront, with a focus on two key under-Gardiner intersections at York and Simcoe Streets. Launched by the Waterfront BIA in 2019, the first ReConnect project at Rees St. (near the Rogers Centre), incorporates design elements such as bright reflective paint, enhanced pedestrian markings, and improved wayfinding to create a new neighbourhood gateway.

The Bentway intends to select up to six (6) Proponents – three (3) for York Street and three (3) for Simcoe Street – to participate in a Design Competition. All shortlisted proponents will be entitled to honoraria for participation in the Design Competition.

One winning proposal for each intersection will be selected to be constructed in mid – 2022. Timelines for implementation will be further refined with the City of Toronto. These demonstration projects will be in place until the Gardiner Expressway is re-habilitated in this area between 2025-2028.

The Calgary Public Library invites applications for the paid position of Artist in Residence: Children’s Artist/ Illustrator at the Central Library for the Fall of 2021.  This residency recognizes the contribution of children’s artists to literature and to Calgary’s culture. It seeks to introduce Library patrons, especially children and educators, to artists and art forms they may not otherwise experience while providing opportunities to meet artists, observe the artistic process and participate in artmaking.

Description of the Position

The Library seeks emerging or mid-career children’s artists/illustrators with an art practice in any medium and an affinity for people. This residency program is based in a glass-walled studio in a public space, which means, while the artist’s practice and privacy are to be respected whether in the studio or in the public space of the library, we do expect the artist to be comfortable and open to engaging with patrons. The artist is expected to display their work and process, as a way of animating the studio for visitors to look in and see when the artist is not present. Experience working with communities, large groups and/or children and youth is an asset.

The children’s artist/ Illustrator residency runs for three months from September to November annually.

The artist will be required to take part in an artist talk near the beginning of the residency and a minimum of two public workshops and/or school programs, all set in collaboration with the Library.

Beginning September 6, 2021, the artist will hold open studio hours at Central Library for a minimum 7.5 hours per week. The residency will culminate in a December exhibition.

The 252-square-foot Artist in Residence studio is available to the artist during opening hours to work on their own projects and the Library Goes to Kindergarten contract (see below).


The Artist in Residence honorarium is $50 per hour to a maximum of 100 hours per residency. This amount includes offsite preparation time and onsite program delivery time as well as any other project expenses incurred by the applicant (except for materials specific to community engagement events).

In addition to the residency, the artist awarded the contract will be commissioned to design the annual Library Goes to Kindergarten card and promotional item during their residency (additional remuneration).


Artists may not apply as an individual and be part of an organization or collective applying in the same competition.

If the applicant is an individual artist, the following eligibility criteria apply:

  • Must not be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program.
  • Must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Self-identify as a children’s artist and/or illustrator and is recognized as such by artists/illustrators working in the same artistic tradition.
  • Actively practice their art.

If the applicant is an organization or a collective, the following eligibility criteria apply:

  • A collective is defined as two or more artists working together under a group name, either on a single project (ad hoc) or on an ongoing basis. For collectives of two artists, both must not be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program and be 18 years of age or older. For collectives of more than two artists, the majority of members must not be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program and 18 years of age or older.

Additionally, the successful applicant must be willing to:

  • Work collaboratively with Library staff and other residents, if applicable.
  • In every case, the Library and the resident or a residency group’s representative will sign a formal written contract that will detail the rights and responsibilities of each party.
  • Successfully meet the criteria of their residency under the budget, residency schedule (co-developed with Library) and timelines set out in their contract.
  • Express desire to create artwork for and in the public realm.
  • Engage and catalyze people and places.
    • The artist should feel comfortable creating programming to contextualize their work and ideas in the library for the public, as it becomes necessary.
    • Be available for press events/media interviews, and be open to discussing their work with library patrons when engaged (within reason).
    • Participate in Library-initiated projects, such as video interviews, for the Library’s archives.
    • Artists are encouraged to make their creative process visible in the studio space so that patrons can look in through the windows when the studio doors are closed.
  • Document and share their residency with the Library and the public (ie: blog, social media feed, written account, photographs, etc.).
  • Provide a short bio (50 words or less), an artist photograph or organization logo in high resolution (.jpg or .png format, suitable for print reproduction), and a short description of the artist’s work (150 words or less). This information will also be used to create in-Library signage and to introduce the artist at community engagement events, as well as for additional publicity opportunities.
  • Provide a booklist for the Library’s website on a topic related to their artistic practice.
  • Showcase their work at the close of their residency. Visual or sound exhibitions may be displayed for a one-month period.
  • Sit on the Selection Committee to choose the 2022 Children’s artist/illustrator in residence. (Summer 2022)

Applicants will be evaluated based on the inclusion of the following:

  • Artistic Practice narrative (500 words or fewer):
    • An explanation of what you want to investigate during the residency and a description of the form(s) the work might take in the context of a final exhibition. Exhibitions may be 2D or 3D and can include digital components. Sound is limited.
    • Describe possible public programming, collaborations with the public and/or other methods of engaging the public, especially children or educators. Ideally, this can be executed with low budget, limited materials, and minimal Library staff support.
  • Describe how your artistic practice is particularly suited to the Calgary Public Library’s values of inclusion, curiosity, and/or collaboration, and is respectful and suitable for family audiences.
  • Artist statement/bio (250 words or fewer)
  • Resume or CV (PDF) with demonstrated experience in public engagement, ideally with children, and examples of collaborations, awards, publications, scholarships, education, work experience, exhibitions, or grants.
  • List of possible technical needs (PDF) during the residency (i.e.: projector and screen).
  • Website/online portfolio showcasing original examples of work in children’s art and/or illustration (target ages 4 – 12). The style of artwork can translate well to a Library Card and T-shirt format (not overly detailed, small, or too dark)
  • If there is no website with online portfolio: Attach any combination of work samples to sufficiently support your proposal. If uploading files, please include artist’s last name in the file name.
    • Up to five jpeg images (no larger than 2MB each)
    • List of work (PDF) with title, medium and dimensions. There is room for two to three additional sentences if necessary.

The successful candidate will be selected by a committee. All applicants will be notified once the committee has made its selection, generally in late summer or early fall. The successful candidate will be notified, but their name will not be announced until the residency has been secured.

Block A is for playwrights who have written in class or in their kitchens, maybe had a short piece produced. And for theatre artists who have thought of themselves primarily as actors or as stage managers or directors, but have the itch to write for performance. It’s for artists who write for all kinds of performance from spoken word to performance art to songs, who primarily write for themselves or someone else to perform live in front of an audience. We’ve even had a few screenwriters who want to learn classic playwriting skills to help them build story and action. Each Block A cohort of six writers meets for ten weeks with a senior playwright mentor who offers fundamentals of writing for performance and helps engage their cohorts to be creatively generative and supportive of each other’s writing. The content and flow of Block A depends on the varied interests of the writers and the playwright mentor, who integrates their own practices and inspirations into the sessions.They learn from each other and get a sense of the collaborative nature of theatre-making.

Applications are now open for Block A.

The Fall cohort of six writers meets for ten weeks beginning in mid-October.

The Winter cohort meets for ten weeks beginning mid-January.

The playwright mentors will be announced by mid-August.

If you have no preference for cohort, please let us know.  To be in Block A, you must be able to attend the majority of 10 evening sessions, usually on Mondays or Tuesdays beginning at 6 pm. We are considering a hybrid of in-person and online sessions dependent on BC Public Health Order guidelines starting in September and the needs of Block A participants and mentors. Accepted Block A participants will be updated about exact details of participation as soon as we can before their first session.

Your application should include:

  • a short sample or samples of your work (can be spoken word, a monologue, short play – we encourage writers in all forms to apply)
  • a letter telling us how you expect Block A to assist you with your writing/theatre-making
  • a resume with your creative experience

PTC is committed to making all our programs as economically accessible as possible. What this means is that Block A participants will be able to pay whatever they choose for their Block A fee. Historically, PTC has charged $250 +GST per participant, but participants will be able to pay any amount they choose, no questions asked.

Application must be received no later than August 19, 2021. We will let you know by early September whether or not we can include you in one of these two cohorts.
