Request for Proposals – Art Installations

Deadline – Friday, June 8, 2018: NookFEST is a community arts + music festival in Toronto’s East end on September 8, featuring unique, hand-made crafts and the talented, dedicated artisans who make them. NookFEST’s mission is to bring community residents and the arts together to celebrate hand-made excellence, music, food, and to support local artists.

In addition to the Artisans Market, music, and vendors, East End Arts and The Nooks aim to transform several locations within the festival into a series of temporary artistic experiences and activations that will showcase the range of incredible talent across Toronto and our east end community.

East End Arts will prioritize immersive and interactive experiences that allow our community to participate in collective art creation, and are that are durational over the length of the festival. East End Arts and The Nooks invite proposal submissions by June 8 for art installations and activations at NookFEST.

Proposals are encouraged from creators working across all disciplines and artistic practices, including but not limited to: installation art, visual art, and community arts. We are providing a platform for fresh and underrepresented voices, and unique perspectives, while creating a culture of city building and creative placemaking. Let your imagination guide you! Suggested themes include:

  • City Building: community, gentrification, inclusivity
  • Economic Vitality: retail, consumption, entrepreneurship
  • Cultural Fabric: identity, access, diversity, equality, newcomers
  • Environment: climate change, reused and recycled materials
