Produced by East End Arts and curated by Labspace Studio, Main Squared is a multidisciplinary 10-day public art festival that will activate and explore the under-used public square at the corner of Main Street and Danforth Avenue in Toronto (August 26 – September 3, 2017).
Drawing inspiration and insight from historical “public squares” while tapping into community aspirations, the festival will invite residents, community members, and the general public to reimagine the square as a space for social engagement, discourse, and civic activism.
Blending contemporary art and community art projects, the festival will feature art installations, interactive activities, workshops, performances, and more.
Toronto and GTA artists and collectives are invited to submit proposals for the creation of new public art projects in addition to existing projects that are thematically aligned.
Deadline May 18, 2017
