Call for proposals: Due April 30th, 11:59pm (midnight)

Art Camp 2017 brings together 12 emerging artists from OCAD University and Ryerson University to build community and create art. This opportunity is open to artists in their 2nd year of study through to recent graduates (up to 2 years post-graduation) who are enrolled/alumni from a program within OCAD U’s Faculty of Art, Indigenous Visual Culture or Ryerson’s School of Image Arts. Participants will be selected through an application process in May 2017 that is based on artistic merit, availability and interest in collaboration.

Art Camp recognizes the profound and essential value that diversity brings to the creation, reception and circulation of creative practices and discourse. We encourage applications from members of equity-seeking communities including women, racialized and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions. We encourage members of equity-seeking groups to self-identify within their letter of intent in their application.

Working alongside faculty supervisors Robyn Cumming (Ryerson University), Jennifer Long & Jennie Suddick (OCAD U), the selected artists will create a group exhibition at Ryerson University’s off-site gallery Ryerson Artspace at the Gladstone Hotel in August 2017.

This year’s exhibition theme is RAISING/FALLING. Potential participants are not required to submit work on this theme but will create work during the course of the residency that engages with this theme for the resulting exhibition in August.

Participating in the residency will involve May & June access to OCAD U’s Photography Production Facilities, professional practice workshops, studio visits, talks, film screenings, brainstorming sessions, critiques and learning new artistic skills from May to August 2017. All participants will receive a budget towards the production of their exhibited work.

Note: The level of Photo studio access will vary depending on the artist’s familiarity with photography.

Residency Sessions: Participants should be available for the following sessions (evening sessions and special events may be added):

-Friday, May 12th 1-9pm: Introductions, sharing of work, welcome dinner
