Rendezvous with Madness 2022 Open Call for Submissions

The Rendezvous with Madness Festival (RWM) is the first and largest arts and mental health festival and public discussion forum that returns to Toronto in October 2022 for its 30th edition and is currently seeking submissions for programming this fall hosted each year by Workman Arts in Toronto, Canada.

The festival presents local, national and international work exploring themes of mental health and/or addiction issues. RWM is a multidisciplinary festival that includes visual art, performance, music, theatre and dance in addition to its core emphasis on film and media arts, panel discussions and in-conversation events.

Note: At this time we are planning for a hybrid festival that is both onsite and online. We will update this page should these plans change.
