Call for Curator: Being Scene 2022

Hosted by Workman Arts

Workman Arts is seeking a guest Curator (or team of Curators) to develop and curate a small group show of visual art/multimedia work as part of Being Scene 2022. We are looking for proposals that speak to the current social climate as it relates to mental health and/or addictions and continues to celebrate Workman member artists and artists with lived experience. Workman Arts supports proposals that offer to showcase artists’ most recent endeavours as well as works that incite conversation and promote a range of intersectional narratives. We are also encouraging proposals to outline ideas of how the group show can be exhibited as an in-person exhibition and/or virtually.

Curator Fee: $5,000
