Call For Artists
Cat on a Leash Creations is seeking inspired artists for their event HeARTvark, an art gathering, which celebrates all that is lovely, weird and unfortunate about Love and Coupling. The event will take place on February 14th, 15th, and 16th in the historic John Snow House in lower Mount Royal. At this event, patrons will be able to meander, navigate and explore interactive art spaces. There will also be a collective social space for patrons to relax, and celebrate the winter ritual of Valentine’s over a drink and a conversation.
We are looking for visual artists, musicians, performance artists, writers, actors, designers, dancers, and combinations of each to create and execute dynamic and interactive installations. These installations could be appropriate for a space the size of a washroom, a living room or anything in between.
Proposals to participate should include:
- A description of what you would like to create, which:
- Explains what aspect of Love and Coupling you would like to explore.
- Describes what forms you would use, a general approach, and roughly the mood and aesthetic of the installation.
- Describes How you might incorporate audience participation
- Describes any potential technical requirements.
- Is limited to one page.
- A list of collaborators.
- Support materials, including resumes, images, articles, etc. of previous work.
Note: Artists should be prepared for suggested adjustments to their projects for compatibility with the space and the other installations.
Ideal Projects Would:
- Be multi-faceted.
- Contribute to a well-executed, non-conventional Valentine’s event.
- Be feasible.
- Be able to install and take down without compromising the interior of the John Snow House.
Door sales will be divided amongst artists and organizers of the event.
Interested artists should submit a proposal to producers Kathryn Smith and Geneviève Paré at [email protected] by December 8th, 2012.
Note: Cat on a Leash would be happy to help artists get in contact with other potential collaborators if they are looking for individuals with specific skills.
