Call for Submissions: Creative Catalyst Program

Hosted by Nia Centre for the Arts

Are you an emerging artist looking to explore and broaden your artistic practice? Back for a second year, the Nia Centre for the Arts' Creative Catalyst program creates space for emerging Black artists to receive one-on-one consulting and support from mid-career / established artists, while also creating opportunities for group learning, dialogue, and connection. 

This year, participating artists will receive six months of consulting support from a Consultant of their choice who best aligns with their artistic practice and goals, as well as a Research, Learning, and Creation Stipend, to be used to support participating artists’ artistic and professional development for the duration of the program. The program is open to **emerging Black artists **based within the **Greater Toronto Area. **Activities will take place both virtually, and in-person. The program features Consultants working in the following disciplines/areas: Curatorial Practice, Literary Arts, Visual Arts, Photography, and Grant Writing.

Emerging Black artists based in the Greater Toronto Area are invited to a merit-based Call for Applications, where they will be able to express interest in working with one or more Creative Consultants in the program. Successful applicants will then be paired with the Consultant of their choosing.

Applications close December 31, 2022, 11:59pm.
