Call for Submissions: Fresh Ground new works
Harbourfront Centre is pleased to announce the fourth Call for Submissions for Fresh Ground new works. Created in 2004, this Canadian arts commissioning initiative supports new multidisciplinary works in the areas of theatre, dance, literature, music, film, visual arts, new media, fine craft and community arts.
New this year is that the awarded commissions must focus on works created for children
(Age 5-12) or youth (age 13-18). Harbourfront Centre is particularly interested in submissions from artists and companies who have not previously undertaken creation for these specific age groups. The commission challenge is to devise works which will involve, stimulate, entice, intrigue and engage young people in the arts while reflecting the diversity of today’s Canadian culture.
A maximum of $20,000 each will be awarded to up to five projects which successfully fulfill the criteria of a new, collaborative, artistic creation incorporating more than one discipline or field.
Deadline: Monday, November 30, 2009
As in previous years, the work must be original,
never before presented or performed and be ready for presentation or
installation at Harbourfront Centre between April 2011 and May 2012
