Toronto Arts Foundation is inviting artists and arts organizations who are currently executing extraordinary events in city parks to participate, at no cost, in the Arts in the Parks initiative and benefit from a city-wide marketing campaign, on-site signage and more. If a park event is part of your season, we want to hear from you!
Events include a variety of artistic disciplines (dance, literary arts, music, theatre, film, visual arts and media arts, community-engaged work, and any combination of the above). If your event occurs between June 15 – September 30, 2016, is free to the general public, and family-friendly, it may be eligible for participation.

Together, let’s invite all Toronto residents outdoors this summer and showcase the incredible artistic work being done in our local communities.
If you are interested in participating in, volunteering for, or have any questions about Arts in the Parks, please reach out to Jaclyn Rodrigues at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Toronto Arts Foundation would like to have all requests for participation in prior to April 11, 2016.
Arts in the Parks will increase access to arts events for residents of all ages, enhance enjoyment of local parks and stimulate community building. In this first year, 50 parks will be animated across Toronto from Etobicoke to Scarborough and North York to the downtown core, with underserved areas being a priority.
Arts in the Parks is a new initiative of the Toronto Arts Foundation and the Toronto Arts Council, being presented in partnership with Toronto Arts & Culture Services, City Parks, Forestry & Recreation and Park People.
