Myseum of Toronto is launching a call for submissions for our seventh annual Myseum Intersections festival.
Myseum Intersections is an annual festival that will take place during the month of April 2022. The festival explores intersectional perspectives of Toronto through collaborative exhibits, events, and experiences. Intersections presents a wide array of programming intended to create dialogue on civic issues and inspire a deeper knowledge and appreciation of our city. Project proposals can range from exhibitions to events such as walking tours, workshops, panel discussions, lectures, public programs, exhibition tours, community celebrations, interactive experiences, and performances. We prioritize participatory and co-created projects, and encourage collaborative partnerships between organizations, collectives and individuals. Intersections funding requests typically range from $3000 to $10,0000. If your total funding request exceeds $10,000, please inform Festival and Programming Coordinator Sarah Tumaliuan by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 647-469-9973 by October 19, 2020. We welcome applications from individuals and organizations who do not require funding support and would like to host a Myseum Intersections project. Please clearly identify your project as ‘UNFUNDED PARTICIPANT’ in the budget section of your application.
We strongly encourage, and prioritize, collaborative projects between two or more individuals/ groups/organizations to apply with an exhibition or event based project that can animate their own community space(s) or a mutually decided upon space. Please Note: Project collaborators do not have to be confirmed at the time of the application deadline. Successful applicants will be required to confirm all primary project collaborators by March 2021. This call for submissions is only open to those in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. Submissions are encouraged from different disciplines, cultures, abilities, and backgrounds including but not limited to: historical societies, archives, artist and design collectives, natural history organizations, cultural organizations, community groups, Mad, Deaf, disability communities, youth and student groups, indigenous communities, architects, ecologists and naturalists, LGBTQ+ communities, designers, urbanist groups, and unique collaborations involving two or more individuals/groups. Organizations, collectives or individuals are not required to have charitable or non-profit status in order to apply. Organizations or individuals who have participated in Myseum Intersections previously are eligible to apply. Each project must offer free programming and access to the general public. If you wish to submit a project that has an admission fee or does not provide access to the general public please inform Festival & Programming Coordinator Sarah Tumaliuan by email email@example.com or phone 647-469-9973 in advance of October 19, 2020.
