RFP: Power Youth Artists-in-Residence
*DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, 28 OCTOBER 2016.*
The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery seeks proposals for creative projects that provide meaningful engagement between youth in priority neighbourhoods and contemporary artists for whom community engagement is central to their practice.
The Power Plant's Power Youth
program, an extension of our mandate, delivers contemporary art programming for youth ages 11 to17 in partnership with St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club of Weston-Mount Dennis and the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club in Regent Park. There are TWO opportunities, each of which will see one Artist-in-Residence at each clubhouse, conducting a 15-week session facilitating the conception to creation of original artworks. These sessions must be aligned with Power Youth program goals and the core values of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada.
There are currently no open volunteer opportunities at The Power Plant, please check back soon.
