Annual Call for Submissions – Regular Programming

Due: Post marked no later than August 1, 2009
Regular Programming is created through submissions that seek the support of aceartinc’s facilities and services for public presentation. aceartinc is dedicated to cultural diversity in its programming and to this end encourages applications from contemporary artists and curators identifying as members of GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered), Aboriginal (status, non-status, Inuit and Metis) and all other culturally diverse communities. aceartinc encourages proposals from individuals, groups and collectives in all visual arts media.

Regular Programming submissions are solicited through a general annual national call with a deadline of August 1st.

The Selection Committee reviews submissions within the context of aceartinc’s mandate and goals and makes recommendations to the board within 4 weeks of the deadline. [The Selection Committee is comprised of the Programming Coordinator, 1-2 Board Members, and 2 Community Members.]

The program is based on aceartinc ‘s available material or personnel resources. aceartinc will pay CARCC fees to artists exhibiting through Regular Programming. Travel and accommodation, one-way shipping and per-diems will be provided where funding permits. aceartinc produces invitations and media release documents, maintains a Critical Distance writing program for response to projects, and documents all projects digitally and in other media as appropriate. Please call (204) 944-9763 or email the gallery if you require other assistance regarding your submission.
