Special Projects

Special Projects
Deadline: January 12, 2019

New in 2018, the Inc. would like to encourage submissions to its Special Projects stream. Special Projects may include, but are not limited to, independent initiatives diverse in nature that may happen at the gallery or off-site. They may manifest themselves through happenings, print materials, digital platforms, multiples, screenings, workshops or other forms of public presentation or intervention. Special Projects are meant to be responsive and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis by the programming committee to be mounted subject to available funding. Applicants are encouraged to consider the technical/logistical requirements of their project, including cost, target audience, safety and durability (if applicable). Special projects provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to engage with topical social, political and cultural issues in new and unconventional ways.

Application Requirements:

  • Applicant contact information (including full name, address, email, phone number)
  • A brief description of your proposed project (500 words max.)
  • 10 images contextualizing the work (may submit sketches or renderings)
  • Artist’s CV (3 pages max.), Artist biography (150 words max.), Artist statement (350 words max.) (Note: for curatorial or group proposals, please include CVs and biographies for yourself and each participating artist)

Please note that there is no application form for the Special Projects stream. Submission materials (excluding images) should be merged into a single pdf. Applicants are asked to submit all information via email to selections@theinc.ca. Please indicate your submission is for Special Projects in the email subject.

For further information, please contact Programming Director, Abedar Kamgari, at programming@theinc.ca or 905-529-3355.
