Proposals are encouraged from creators working across all disciplines and artistic practices, including but not limited to: installation, painting, drawing, visual arts, sound and light design, sculpture, videography, projections, etc!

DETAILS

Each artist will receive an honorarium of up to $200 and a ticket to the event.
We will be selecting 5 artists to exhibit during our REALITIES fundraiser party.
You have two options:
1) Transform an 8’ x 10’ booth into a temporary ‘reality'. (see images attached)
2) Submit your own installation design.

EXPECTATIONS & GUIDELINES

1. Artists will get access to their assigned spot at House of VR by 6PM on FEBRUARY 24th, and are expected to be completely installed by 9PM. ** All artwork must be removed by 10 AM FEBRUARY 25TH.**
2. Your grant will be a maximum of $200, specific to your budget. Should you wish to exceed this amount for your project, we encourage you to think about alternate fund sources such as crowd funding, fundraisers, organ harvesting, your wealthy grandparents, etc.
3. Realities is a Leave No Trace event, please ensure your clean up plan will remove all materials from the event venue.
4. Realities is hosted in an indoor space. As such we will not be able to permit fire arts.
5. You will be expected to be on site for the duration of the event. It will be your responsibility to ensure your project remains safe and functioning.
6. If you don't know all the answers, don't stress. Should you have questions or feel unsure about any of the above, reach out! We're happy to guide you through the process and get you the information you need.

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

Your application will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
1. Artistic Excellence - How original, interesting, relevant, daring, magical, thought provoking is your idea?
2. Completeness of design - How well thought out is your project? How complete is your application?
3. Feasibility & Constructability - What is the feasibility of your project? Will you be able to build it within the timeline?
4. Appropriateness of Budget - How well does your materials list match the budget given? Are the prices given reasonable?
5. Moop/LNT Plan - Your project should minimize producing waste, and also have a plan for cleaning any possible matter out of place that could be produced during the installation or strike of your project.

ASSESSMENT

Your application will be reviewed in detail by each individual on our Art Grants Committee and scored on a series of questions based on the guiding criteria above. While experience and skills are considered, they aren't mandatory, and the merit of your application is what will determine the art selected. The more detail you can provide us the better.

LIMITATIONS

Your art grant is intended to be a materials subsidy, the same as any other burner Art Grant. It is not to be used for labour or time.

DISBURSEMENT

Should you be selected, you will receive 100% of your grant upon award.
