Call for Applications: Heat Waves

Hosted by Eyelevel

Back by popular demand, Eyelevel announces our call for submissions for our summer mini-residency program, HEAT WAVES. 

This year, HEAT WAVES runs for the months of June and July out of Wonder'neath's amazing studio space. Residents will be sharing spaces with permanent studio renters at all different career stages, the Blue Building Contemporary Art Gallery, Wonder'neath and their programs and Eyelevel's Bookstore & Office. The four available spots are from:

  •  June 1 - June 15
  • June 16 - June 30
  • July 2 - July 16
  • July 17 - July 31 HEAT WAVES will be “soft-juried,” we will be looking at applications with these values in mind:
  • You have never shown at Eyelevel
  • You can work within our available time slots
  • The resources that we have match the resources that you need
  • You do not have easy access to a studio, gallery or production space right now
  • Priority is given to artists who identify as BIPOC, QPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+ and/or artists who currently feel unable to access professional arts organizations.  Use of the studio is not required in order to participate in this program, however, Eyelevel cannot provide travel or accommodations for out-of-town artists, and will prioritize applications from local artists.

Submissions to this program are due on Sunday, May 9th by Midnight

Eyelevel is an arts worker/artist-run organization mandated to present and support the development of socially-relevant and thought-provoking artistic practices locally, regionally and nationally. Eyelevel supports artists through residencies, mentorship, publishing and presentation outside of a traditional gallery context that is accompanied by care-oriented and trauma-informed artistic, professional and personal support. Eyelevel aims to raise public awareness and capacity of our local arts community; particularly artists and arts workers who have been historically underserved and misrepresented in the contemporary art dialogue. Eyelevel strives to be a connector between artists, communities and the broader public, to constantly question the balance of power and work against systemic oppression and discrimination by centring anti-violence and pro-survivor practices. Eyelevel works in treaty to build a more inclusive and caring world through art, and to advance positive change within the arts through its operations, policies and programming.
