Call for submissions: street artists and street art companies

The Regroupement des arts de rue du Québec, in collaboration with the Conseil des arts de Montréal, is seeking submissions from street artists and street art companies.

Deadline: September 5, 2017

Next October 5, the Maison du Conseil des arts de Montréal will open its doors to disseminators, artists and cultural workers for half a day dedicated to street art, presented by the Regroupement des arts de rue du Québec, in collaboration with the Conseil des arts de Montréal.

This will be a fourfold event, consisting of a roundtable discussion, workshops, promotional activity and a networking reception. A more detailed invitation will follow in early September.

This call for submissions is for promotional activities: twelve artists, artists’ companies or  artists’ collectives will be given a chance to take part in a series of five-minute flash presentations, in which they can promote their approach or their repertoire to disseminators on the Island of Montreal.

You’re an artist residing in Montreal or a professional arts organization whose head office is located in Montreal?
You’re a street art worker and have one or more works in your portfolio?
You’re known for your strong summarizing skills (or you can talk really fast)?
You’ve got some audiovisual material illustrating your artistic work?
You’re very keen to further disseminate your works throughout Montreal?
You’re available on October 5, 2017, from 1 to 7 p.m.?

Then try your luck!
