    Opportunity

    Waterfront Toronto is seeking to commission a professional artist or artist team to create a temporary floating artwork for Harbour Square Park Basin. Artists are asked to submit proposals for installation during summer 2022. The artwork will activate the basin by engaging with the local community and visitors to the waterfront. This Call is open to all interested Canadian artists and artist teams with relevant experience as practicing professional artists.

    Harbour Square Park is located on the shore of Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America. Containing one-fifth of all surface freshwater on Earth, the lakes are a vital source of drinking water and food. Throughout history these interconnected bodies of water have been critically important for trade, human settlement and migration. They are sacred to the First Peoples, who have inhabited the shores and fished in their waters since time immemorial. The lakes’ unique ecosystems are host to a diverse array of plants and animals, and their shores and waters provide recreation for millions of people.

    Today, multipoint pollution, climate change, over-extraction, invasive species, and wetland loss are all taking a toll on their watersheds. Water scarcity, often perpetuated by climate change, is one of the most pressing global challenges today, particularly in its relationship to migration. It is imperative we remain engaged with the importance of these waters and with the challenges they face.

    With this broad context in mind, artists are asked to develop work that explores water as a connector. They should consider the histories and importance of these waterways and their role as geographical, ecological, political, economic, social, and spiritual connectors.

    General Submission Requirements

    Waterfront Toronto is inviting practicing professional artists to include in their submission:

    – Artist statement
    – Images of proposed artwork
    – Proposed budget breakdown and schedule
    – Images of previous and relevant work
    – Artist CV
    – References

    This is a one-stage competition. Submissions will be reviewed by an independent evaluation panel convened for this project. Waterfront Toronto intends to identify one successful Artist or Artist Team to undertake this project.

    Budget

    The total commissioning budget is $60,000 CAD +HST. This includes all artist fees, design costs, materials, shipping, installation and removal, insurance and permits.

      CALL TO ARTISTS FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI)
      PUBLIC ARTWORK FOR THE DAVISVILLE COMMUNITY & AQUATIC CENTRE
      Ward 12: Toronto-St. Paul’s
      Artist Design Fee: $40,000.00 (+HST)

      The City of Toronto invites practicing artists (including artist teams) to submit their Expression of Interest to the first stage of a public art competition for the new Davisville Community & Aquatic Centre (Davisville CAC).

      The artist(s) will be selected through an open, two-stage competition. The finalist will be awarded a design contract and will be paid a fee of $40,000.00 (+HST), for design and consultation services (including contract administration, project management, travel and other incidental expenses), working closely with staff of Economic Development & Culture; Parks, Forestry and Recreation; project design team CS&P Architects; and other partners to refine their concept proposal to the requirements of the site and other conditions for project realization.

      Collaborating with the artist and the design team, City of Toronto staff will manage all aspects of the production of the work, including budget, scheduling, coordination with the design team and general contractor, and installation.

      PROJECT BACKGROUND

      The Davisville CAC is a capital project of the City’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division (PFR), in partnership with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). The new City facility is located on the Davisville Junior P.S. site and will share space with the new school. The school will have access to the City swimming pools and the City will have access to the school’s gymnasium and underground parking garage.

      The new City aquatic centre will be located in the Davisville Village neighbourhood, near the intersection of Yonge Street and Davisville Avenue. Designed by CS&P Architects, the centre will provide residents with a three-storey recreational aquatic facility, including a 6-lane, 25-metre lane pool, a leisure/tot pool with gender neutral washrooms and change rooms, multi-purpose spaces, and an active roof.

      It will be a valued community space, inclusive and accessible to multi-generational residents that encourages health and well-being through its sports and recreational programming, informed by community consultation to date.

      The City of Toronto intends to design and construct a Net Zero Energy Building to attain Net Zero Energy operations through incorporating strategies to deliver Energy, Water and Waste reduction.

      PUBLIC ART OPPORTUNITY

      The site of the new Davisville CAC is located just north of the Mount Pleasant Cemetery, the Kay Gardiner Beltline Trail and two ravines within the Don River Watershed: the Vale of Avoca to the south (where the remains of Yellow Creek flow), and the Moore Park Ravine to the east, home to Mud Creek. The building’s design and materials were inspired by the ravines, and artists are asked to continue with this broad theme as they consider creating artwork for this project. Artists should also think of ways to engage with community members during the development and/or creation of their proposals. Specific artwork locations are not yet defined, but could include glass surfaces throughout, interior walls and floors, and exterior rooftop surfaces.

      TWO-STAGE COMPETITION

      This is a two-stage, open, international competition for practicing artists who work in two-dimensional media (drawing, painting, photography, beading, embroidery, etc.).

      The City of Toronto’s new Public Art Strategy outlines the City’s commitment to public art created for, and with the input of, Toronto communities, and to create opportunities for artists of diverse backgrounds, experience and practice. We welcome submissions from Indigenous, Black, and racialized artists, and artists with relevant experience who may not have previously worked in the public realm.

      A specially convened Selection Panel composed of arts professionals and community members will be established for this competition.

      Stage 1: Request for Expression of Interest: 6 weeks (October – November)

      An internal panel, made up of design team members and relevant City staff and external advisors, as required, will review all submissions and identify a long-list of qualified artists, based on artistic excellence and demonstrated or perceived ability to create and execute an innovative, engaging public artwork that is complementary to the overall design scheme and community context.

      The long-listed artists’ submissions will be reviewed by the external selection panel to select a 5-artist short list to proceed to the second stage.

      Stage 2: Request for Proposals: 2 months (January – February)

      The short-listed artists will be notified in December 2021 (date TBC), and invited to create a design proposal. A detailed Terms of Reference project document will be provided to guide short-listed artists in the preparation of their proposals.

      Short-listed artists will be paid a fee of $1000.00 (+HST) for this stage.

      Short-listed artists will present their proposals to the selection panel in March 2022 (date TBC). Presentations will be in-person or online depending on health and travel guidelines in place when the short-list is selected.

      The selection panel will choose a finalist whose proposal responds best to the site, both conceptually and technically, and who has the ability or perceived ability to conceive and realize a public artwork on this site.

      The selected artist will be notified in March, 2022.

      ArtworxTO, the City’s Year of Public Art, will take place in 2021-2022 as part of the City’s commitment to artists and art as part of COVID-19 recovery. All new commissions will be included in the ArtworxTO program wherever possible.

        Art Insight – A partnership with Workman Arts and Lakeshore Arts invites instructors to propose accessible and inclusive online or hybrid courses for our 2021/2022 training program. Instructors will develop and teach workshops and classes for participants living in South Etobicoke. Each course will be provided with a Workman Arts peer support person, who will support participants with anything that may come up for them during the class. The peer support person is not there to assist the instructor with instructing.

        A bit about Workman Arts:

        Workman Arts provides multi-disciplinary, professional art workshops for and by artists with lived experience of mental health and/or addictions issues. Workman Arts aims to support member artists through community support, access to free studio space, materials, equipment, free art training as well as professional development and presentation opportunities.

        A bit about Lakeshore Arts:

        Lakeshore Arts is a community arts organization dedicated to engaging all peoples using multidisciplinary art forms as a way of enriching lives and strengthening Toronto’s communities. We believe community arts contribute to the holistic health of a community by offering creative opportunities to empower positive social change through connecting people to the arts.

        About Art Insight – A partnership with Workman Arts and Lakeshore Arts:

        Thanks to a $1 million investment over four years from the Slaight Family Foundation, Workman Arts is expanding its art training programs throughout the GTA by partnering with Scarborough Arts, Urban Arts, North York Arts, East End Arts, Arts Etobicoke and Lakeshore Arts. The expanded program tackles the prevalence of social isolation in individuals with mental health issues and the lack of opportunities to build lasting social connections through meaningful engagement outside of the mainstream mental health system. Workman Arts’ art training programs are unique in the mental health sector because they do not treat the art class as secondary to the mental health benefits. High-quality art classes across all disciplines are facilitated by instructors with lived experience of mental health and/or addiction issues.

        Art Insight – A partnership with Workman Arts and Lakeshore Arts is specifically looking to add programming in South Etobicoke. This includes the area between Etobicoke Creek to the West, and the Humber River to the East, The Queensway to the North, and the lakeshore to the south.. Courses will begin in January 2022 and February 2022 running 5 weeks in length online*.

        Payment:

        Instructors will be paid a total of $350 per class under 4 hours, plus a one time prep fee of $250 (a total of $2000 for one 5-week course.) Workman Arts will cover the cost of materials and support the delivery or pick up of materials to participants.

        What we are looking for:

        We are looking for artists who live in Etobicoke who have developed skills or technical experience in a range of disciplines that may include (but are not limited to): Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textile Art, Photography, Media Arts, Filmmaking, Podcasting, Animation, Performance, Theatre, Movement, Poetry, Prose, Playwriting, Songwriting and/or Music Composition.

        We recognize all forms of knowledge acquisition and invite instructors from all backgrounds to apply; academic experience is not necessary. We prioritize hiring artists with lived experience of mental illness and/or addiction.

        Please keep in mind that programs are intended to provide participants with guidance and support in their own creative pursuits or the chance to contribute to a larger collaborative process (rather than be in service to an Instructor’s sole artistic vision or project). Also, please note that Workman Arts is a non-clinical arts organization and we will not prioritize applications that are situated explicitly within an art therapy and/or clinically-based framework.

        Once we have received your application it will be reviewed and we will contact you with next steps if your application is selected. All applications will be reviewed.

            The Woodstock Art Gallery is pleased to invite artists residing in Ontario to submit expressions of interest and qualifications to create a permanent public artwork in the City of Woodstock.

            On August 12, 2021, Woodstock City Council approved the renaming of the west side of Vansittart Park to Florence Carlyle Park, with a portion designated as the Bruce Flowers Sculpture Garden. Flowers, who was a passionate and inspirational art educator in Woodstock for many decades, passed away in 2018 and left the residual of his estate to the Woodstock Art Gallery with the provision that the funds be used to establish an outside figurative sculpture garden.

            This public artwork is important to not only recognize the contributions of an important artist/educator in this community, but it also speaks to the change in attitude and acceptance towards members of the local 2SLGBTQQIA+ community.

            The Woodstock Art Gallery emphasizes the request for a contemporary response considering the human form to address one or more of the following thematic options as related to this concept:

            – Love & Acceptance
            – Mentoring & Teaching
            – Community & Connection

            Artists and artist teams are asked to submit an application package including an expression of interest, CV, references and examples of previous work. Complete details for the project including the call to artists, application forms and additional support documents can be found on the Public Art page on the Woodstock Art Gallery’s website.

            Deadline: October 26, 2021 at 11:59pm

            An artwork proposal is not requested at this time. Artist applications will be reviewed on the basis of artistic excellence, expressed written interest in the site and other professional qualifications

            The applications will be reviewed by a selection committee of qualified persons, which will recommend a shortlist of artists to develop an artwork proposal. An honorarium of $1,000 for proposal development will be extended to the shortlisted artist. The selected artist will be awarded a $55,000 commission for the completion of the project. Installation of the artwork is estimated to take place in 2023.

                Castlegar Sculpturewalk announces a call for artists for their 2022 event, which opens next May. Sculpturewalk is open to professional and amateur sculptors of all backgrounds. One of the premiere arts events in Canada, Sculpturewalk attracts artists and viewers from across the world to the beautiful city of Castlegar, BC, the Sculpture Capital of Canada™.

                Completed sculptures or proposed designs can be submitted. For proposed designs, examples of previous work must be included within the application. Open to art beyond what is traditionally viewed as sculpture (i.e. light installations). All sculptures need to be made of a durable material for the yearlong outdoor setting and constructed with safety in mind for display in a public setting.

                Each artist accepted to the program will receive an $1000 honorarium, payable upon installation of sculpture.

                – People’s Choice Awards: Winning sculpture purchased for up to $15,000 plus a $2000 cash award, 2nd place $1000, 3rd place $500
                – Artistic Merit Awards: Overall winner $2000, 2nd place $1000, 3rd place $500
                – Voting for the People’s Choice award will take place from May-October

                About Castlegar
                Sculpturewalk

                Inspired by, and borne of, local artist Pat Field’s participation in the Sculpturewalk program of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Castlegar Sculpturewalk began in 2010 with just ten sculptures. When Castlegar City Council learned of Sioux Falls’ downtown revitalization initiative tied to the cultural economy, they realized that they faced many of the same downtown revitalization issues and agreed to a trial project.

                Incredibly, with community and basin support, and a dedicated group of volunteers, this cautious trial project grew beyond expectations into Castlegar becoming The Sculpture Capital of Canada™. Downtown Castlegar is now one of the few venues in Canada where artists have the opportunity to show and sell outdoor sculptural work, bringing international artists to the community, and supporting emerging local and regional talent.

                  The Waterfront BIA and Waterfront Toronto are seeking applications for an exciting Artist Residency opportunity.
                  The 12-month residency will start in December 2021 with a period of community integration and research, and will culminate with the implementation of projects during 2022, which will coincide with ArtworxTO: Toronto’s Year of Public Art. Artists will have the opportunity to engage with current projects led by the BIA and Waterfront Toronto, as well as connect with members of the local community, in order to develop innovative and compelling art projects that are relevant to Toronto’s waterfront. This opportunity is open to all professional artists or artist teams in the Greater Toronto Area who have experience in art presented in the public realm and community-engaged art.

                  The aim of this residency is to create meaningful, experiential encounters with the community, to activate multiple underutilized spaces along the lakefront, and draw new audiences to the waterfront. It will also develop thinking around the 2022 residency focus on climate change. Projects may include workshops, performances, events, urban interventions, and temporary or ephemeral installations. Interactive and participatory projects will be encouraged, as will projects that invite collaborations with artists from different disciplines. This residency will create an opportunity for artists to expand their practice and develop innovative ways to integrate art into the fabric of the city. It will also contribute towards the ongoing dialogue on public art and civic space.

                  Climate change – a code red threat to humanity, according to the recent United Nations report – requires us to think differently. It challenges us to imagine alternative futures. Highlighting the urgency around the loss of biodiversity and ecological collapse, as well as intersectional equity issues related to the unevenly distributed impacts of nature, is critical. However, just as important is a call-to-action that offers solutions. Public art can help us reckon with the crisis and provoke creative responses, helping us push the boundaries of what can be possible. This artist residency will address climate change through thematics, and will focus on sustainability and the environment by exploring practices, processes, materials, and reuse as important mitigation solutions towards impacts on nature.

                  COVID-19 has resulted in a constantly evolving present and an unforeseeable future. The approach to this Artist Residency will be rooted in the current times and must therefore involve flexibility, a willingness to improvise, and an ability to think of new ways of engaging the public and using our public spaces. If restrictions are still in place, artists must explore creative ways to engage with communities in ways that are exciting and safe for everyone. These processes must take into consideration public health guidelines.

                  This project is an equal partnership between Waterfront Toronto and The Waterfront BIA. Funding and artist support will be provided by both organizations.

                  General Submission Requirements:

                  – Artist Statement
                  – Images of previous work
                  – Artist CV
                  – References

                  Budget

                  The total commissioning amount for this project is $85,000 CAD, split into five phases over the residency.

                    An exploration of the interesting ways that science and craft intersect. Both fields rely on creative problem-solving skills, research, specialized training, traditional and innovative techniques and methodologies, imagination, and curiosity to fuel the search for answers. Science not only serves as a source of inspiration – scientific methods and principals are used every day by craft artists in the processes and creation of their work. Likewise, artists are called upon to find creative solutions and alternative perspectives in laboratory and research settings. How does science inspire and influence your work?

                    Please prepare ahead:

                    one-page written concept and/or description of your work

                    CV – 3 pages max
