Call for Submissions: Creativity Everything

Hosted by Ryerson University

The Creativity Everything Connection Fellowship is open for applications!

The Creativity Everything lab at Ryerson University has previously offered various free creativity workshops, plus Creativity Conversations, for one-to-one support, and The Black Mosaic, a virtual hub for Black creatives in Toronto. But we wanted to do more, so we are launching the Creativity Everything Connection Fellowships.

The main purpose of the Fellowship is to give you more support, and help you work out where to go next, or what to prioritize – or whatever questions or challenges you have. We’re awarding six Fellowships, so the support will come from the Creativity Everything team, and also from the other Fellows – it’s meant to be a little community.

Creators in any field or medium, living in the Greater Toronto Area, can apply. Recognizing the systemic inequities in culture and creative industries, priority will be given to creators who identify as Black people, Indigenous people or People of Colour.

The Fellowship is for you, if you have a creative practice (such as music, art, fashion, games, design, any kind of media-making or other creativity) and you want to take it to the next level – whatever this means for you. It’s fine if you are just starting out, as long as you are committed to it and can show us some of what you’ve started to do. It’s equally fine if you’ve been going for quite a while. It’s about supporting your creative passion.

7 June 2021 is the deadline for applications. Apply before 11.59pm!

Accessibility

If you’re selected, we will be asking about your accessibility needs so that we can support you fully.

If you have any questions, do email david.gauntlett@ryerson.ca. We can also have a Zoom chat before you submit your application, if you like.
