Artscape is proud to announce the imminent opening of our latest project: a not-for-profit multidisciplinary performance and event space named Artscape Sandbox.
This brand-new, flexible venue of 6,000 square feet is located at the corner of Adelaide and Widmer streets, in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District. Not only is it the perfect place to host any type of event (capacity 200), it's an ideal space for artistic exploration, innovation and presentation. And to facilitate its use by artists and creators, we are delighted to announce two special opportunities for Artscape Sandbox’s first year of operations and a Call for Submissions.
The Artscape Sandbox Creation Initiative makes this specialized performance and event space available for just $1 per day. If you're an arts professional looking for a space like Sandbox to develop and/or present new artistic projects and/or to develop further resources for large-scale creation projects, this program is for you.
The Artscape Sandbox Resident Teachers Initiative seeks artists, arts organizations and collectives interested in becoming resident teachers at Artscape Sandbox. Successful applicants benefit from a FREE one-day booking, and subsequent bookings at a heavily subsidized rate. Resident teachers at Artscape Sandbox will have marketing support, access to in-kind or discounted printing and complete control over their class administration, including registrations, fee payments and participant communication.
Find more information and calls for submissions on the Artscape website. The deadline for submissions is October 1 at 11:59 PM.
