The Professional Guest Artist Series is designed for contemporary artists to share their practices in a community context. It is a collaborative process with a high level of engagement by participants of all ages, so workshop content must be appropriate for youth participation.
The majority of Art City participants are from Indigenous and Newcomer backgrounds. Artists and knowledge keepers that self-identify with these groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Artists must have a demonstrated proficiency in the medium the proposed workshop is based on or must communicate technical support requirements. (i.e. If proposing a video workshop, the artist must know how to use video equipment and editing software or communicate their need for technical support.)
A Jury of Art City staff, Board, and past guest artists select proposals.
Art City also seeks input from our Youth Council, a group of young Art City participants.
All artists will be contacted after the jury has deliberated. Please allow for a period of 6 to 8 weeks after the submission deadline to hear back about the status of your proposal.
