Long Winter is an all ages contemporary art and music party that happens during the winter months in Toronto at various locations around the city. On Saturday, February 9 (7 PM-2 AM, PWYC), Long Winter will take over the entire building at Workman Arts including the Chapel, Skey Room and Roseneath Studio.

Workman Arts is looking for the following to be a part of this art show:

  • 4 site-specific visual art installations ($200 artist fee)
  • 2 main stage 30 minute musical acts ($200 artist fee)
  • 8 theme-specific bed sheet banners* ($25 artist fee)

If you would like to apply please send the following:

  • What section you would like to be a part of (Installation, Music or Banner)
  • A 50-100 word bio to be printed in the Long Winter brochure
  • The Artist Name you would like to be printed in the Long Winter brochure
  • A Short Description of your project/music set/banner idea
  • What part of the building you would you like to present in (for music and visual art)?

*Eight (clean!) bedsheets will be provided for Workman Arts artists to create a thematic banner. These can include painting, textiles and/or mixed media that will be hung on the balcony of the theatre. We encourage artists to think of the banners as a way to address the material’s associations, themes, memories, stories and images that relate to beds, depression, sickness, sleep and/or recovery. All completed pieces must be brought to Workman on February 1.

Please email applications to Cara_Spooner@workmanarts.com or drop off in person by January 4 at 5 PM.
