The more time an artist has to create, make, develop and plan even mull over a work of art the greater the depth and the value to the viewer can be. The festival board wants to begin working with artists earlier, provide acceptance of work into the festival, so artists can plan and execute works on a longer term.

The Junction Arts Festival is now accepting creative proposals for the 2010 Junction Arts Festival. The Festival runs from September 8 to 12, 2010 with a two-day street closure of Dundas Street West, September 11 and 12.
The festival is currently accepting proposals only from performance-based artists and art installation works of any combination, including but not limited to, Indoor and Outdoor Installation Artists, Street Dance and Theatre groups as well as any multi-arts ideas that we may be able to support. Our emphasis in 2010 will be for large scale outdoor work but we are accepting all proposals. Fees will be determined on a per-artist-basis.
Additional calls for Visual Artists, Poets and Musicians will be forthcoming in the next few months.
Approximately 200,000 people attend the festival each year, experiencing interactive works that both engage and enthrall.
Proposals should include the following:
- Artist or group contact info - Bio and history - Example of past work
- Video and/or photo examples of proposed work. If proposing a new work, please include a description, plus technical requirements
If proposing a new work please be as specific as your present process allows at this time. Also inform us if you are applying for any creative funding from other sources. If applications for government funding precede any agreement between artist and festival, then a letter of intent may be issued on our part.
The Junction Arts Festival has been running its present programming since 2007, but the festival’s history dates back to 1991, with the street closure since 2000. ‘Where the Arts meet the Street’ is the basis for this ever-growing multi-arts Festival that includes visual art, galleries, installation art, main stage music, dance, theatre, performance art, travelling minstrels and anything in between and beyond.
Toronto, National and International applications accepted. - All inquiries should be directed to Festival Director, Michael Menegon via email email@example.com
