There are four programming streams accepting applications, including our free Public Works programming and a Special Call for Artists & Curators working in all mediums. 

The Special Call welcomes proposals for short solo performances, art interventions, and/or curated series to be experienced along sidewalks, streets, alleys, and laneways of Toronto. 

Our Public Works programming brings artists and audiences together to reimagine possibilities for the public realm, in digital, in-person, and hybrid formats. In 2022, we invite creators to consider how the landscape and infrastructure of the city impacts how we move, connect, and communicate with one another.
