The Toronto Fringe is accepting proposals from visual/installation/durational artists with ideas for unique outdoor installations to beautify the Fringe Patio and enhance the patron experience in the space, during the 2018 Toronto Fringe Festival (July 4-15).
The Fringe Patio is located in the parking lot and hockey rink of the Scadding Court Community Centre (707 Dundas Street West, at Dundas and Bathurst). It is Toronto’s largest pop-up patio and sees thousands of visitors through the space. Programming includes free events, live music, local food vendors, and a licenced bar.
Installations will be installed by the artist(s) before the start of the festival (July 4), remain up throughout the festival, and taken down by the artist(s) after the Fringe Patio closes on the final day of the festival (July 15). Installations must be weather proof , and secure enough to remain in good condition for the full 12 days without harming or endangering patrons.
Artists are encouraged to visit the site before applying, in order to understand the demands of the space, and to propose ideas that incorporate elements that already exist (ie. the chain-link fence around the hockey rink, nearby trees, gates, concrete, etc.).
A small honourarium will be awarded to successful applicants.
For any questions, please contact Outreach Coordinator Julia Vodarek Hunter at email@example.com or 416-966-1062 EXT226
