Are you a conceptual or visual artist with an interactive project you want to share?

Toronto Fringe is entering a new era at our new Fringe Club at the Scadding Court Community Centre and we want you to help bring the club to life this summer! The Fringe Club is the central hub of the festival and it’s open daily throughout the Fringe Festival.
Scadding Court is located on the south-east corner of Bathurst St and Dundas St W at 707 Dundas St W.

We will be accepting proposals for activations that take place within the Fringe Club perimeter:

Other things to note:

  • While you will not be able to charge for admission, you will be able to “pass the hat” or solicit donations at the end of your performance or throughout your installation
  • The Fringe Festival will curate this series for a limited amount of space, and thus not all proposals will be accepted
  • You will likely not have access to any electricity
  • It will be your responsibility to promote your installation or performance, although we will do our best to amplify your messaging

Applications are now open! Deadline to apply is May 19, 2017.
