StreetARToronto Underpass Program – StART UP
2016 StART Underpass Program Artist Roster Applications now open!
Deadline March 4, 2016, 4:30pm
The City of Toronto invites artists to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to participate in StreetARToronto’s Underpass Program, StART UP.
StART UP provides opportunities for artists to create works of art that contribute to the program mandate to make our City’s underpasses safe, walkable and beautiful. This project is being implemented by StreetARToronto (StART), part of the Public Realm Section of the City of Toronto’s Transportation Services Division.
The goal of this Expression of Interest (EOI) is to obtain a roster of artists who will be eligible to participate in StART UP projects.
This EOI for the 2016 StART UP Artist Roster is part of a comprehensive program to enhance and transform selected City underpasses with new and enhanced lighting, improved sidewalks and walking conditions, pigeon proofing, removal of weeds and the installation of mural or street art. StART UP aims to transform up to 5 underpasses per year, with the mural or street art installation being the final component of the program. Qualified artists will be selected to be part of the StART UP Artist Roster, and the commission for each underpass will be awarded following a two-stage selection process outlined in the REOI (see link below). Artists are eligible to receive one StART UP commission per calendar year.
Application Deadline: March 4, 2016 @ 4:30pm
