We just launched our first-ever open call for the third iteration of Winter Island a unique Artist-In-Residence Program on Toronto Island. I’m trying to spread the word to as many artists as possible to let them know about the call.


This juried program invites artists to submit proposals for one of four, month-long artist residencies at Artscape Gibraltar Point from January to April 2018, with a subsequent exhibition of works created during the residency to take place at Artscape Youngplace in May/June 2018


Artists selected by the jury will receive one month of free studio space and accommodation ($900 in value), a $400 food/materials budget, ferry tickets, and more.


You can find full details, including submission criteria and eligibility at http://artscapegibraltarpoint.ca/winter-islands-artist-in-residence-program-2018


I would be so grateful if you could share the call or link with your peers, members and social networks!

I don’t want to take up too much of your time, so I’m happy to provide resized images or whatever you need to make sharing easier. Just let me know!


All the very best,
