Event History

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 both dialogue, and the hands-on creation of equitable and inclusive cultural initiatives that engage and give voice to local communities.

Please submit your proposals by 5 pm on December 1, 2017.

Since the summer of 2016, the Gardiner Museum’s Community Arts Space program has acted as an incubator for arts-based community projects.

The Gardiner’s 307-square-metre third-floor special exhibition hall is 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.

Join us for an information session on Wednesday, November 15 to learn more about what to expect from this year's Community Arts Space program:bit.ly/2gRBH6m

What we're looking for:

Public Space Intervention Project
Project open to public from July 5 - Aug 29
Design-build and/or socially-engaged installation that re-imagines what accessible, downtown public space can look like.

Performance on the Plaza
Five performances staged during July 5 - August 29
The Gardiner’s Outdoor Plaza continues to be a place in the Yorkville neighborhood for free outdoor performances. We invite applicants to submit proposals for a performing art series that will amount to five performances staged during the Community Arts Space project. Whether it’s an open air concert or unique theatrical event, we invite applicants to make our public space come alive.

Young People Project
July 3 - 20 or July 31 - August 17
The Gardiner believes in providing creative, hands-on opportunities for children, tweens, teens and families. The Young People Project would engage this young audience, connecting them to local contemporary art and cultural heritage. Additionally, this project is invited to re-imagine our Family Sundays public programming during its run.

Visibility and Representation Project
July 3 – 20 or July 31 – August 17
The Gardiner wants to authentically make space for the stories and lived experiences of local Queer, Trans, Indigenous, Black and People of Colour (QTIBPOC) communities. The Visibility and Representation Project supports critical engagement around issues like identity and belonging, as well as the systematic barriers and disenfranchisement these communities face. Additionally, this project is invited to access space at The 519 for workshop programming that supports skills sharing, professional development, and peer-to-peer learning.

Museum Intervention
August 21 - 31
The Gardiner is accepting proposals that explore the expanded field of ceramics, evoking participation, performance, and pedagogical potential. The Museum Intervention invites a project that uses installation and site sensitivity to engage with not only the Gardiner’s Exhibition Hall but also its lobby. Additionally, this project can access six months of free studio time at one of Akin Collective’s studios, as well as kiln firing access.
