StreetARToronto Partnership Program

2017 StART Partnership Program Applications now open!

Deadline: April 3, 2017 @ 4:30pm

The City of Toronto is seeking submissions for StreetARToronto's Partnership Program. Applicants must be incorporated not-for-profit or charitable organizations operating in the City of Toronto. Individual artists and artist collectives are encouraged to apply through a not-for-profit sponsor.

This project is being implemented by StreetARToronto (StART), part of the Public Realm Section of the City of Toronto's Transportation Services Division.

Background:

StART's mission is to revitalize and engage communities through street and mural art. StART provides up to $50,000 in funding for partnership projects that enhance and promote street art throughout Toronto. The Partnership Program is a public-private partnership and is intended to assist organizations in leveraging funding from other sources. StART’s contribution cannot exceed 70% of the total project budget.

All proposed projects and their related activities must be located within the City of Toronto. Projects must be located on City-owned land or a publicly-accessible area on private property, with maximum street visibility and neighbourhood impact. Written authorization from the property owner is required at the time of application.

Projects must demonstrate a strong community engagement component. StART requires applicants to host at least two public consultations or events to inform the community about their projects and obtain feedback. Mentorship or training opportunities for youth or emerging artists are encouraged.

StART values projects that are aligned with broader neighbourhood revitalization efforts and target areas of graffiti vandalism.

StART evaluates all submissions based on a consistent set of assessment criteria.
