CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Artscape is currently accepting applications for the
seventh term of the Gibraltar Point International
Artist Residency Program, taking place May 19th ? June
17th, 2006.

ABOUT THE GIBRALTAR POINT INTERNATIONAL ARTIST
RESIDENCY PROGRAM
The Gibraltar Point Residency transcends political,
aesthetic and geographic boundaries, welcomes
diversity and provides a spawning ground for unique
cultural alliances. The program is open to Canadian
and international artists who are engaged in the
research, development or creation of work. Emerging,
mid-career and established professional artists are
invited to apply. Participants in the residency
program receive accommodation, a private work studio
and all meals at no cost. Travel and material costs
are the responsibility of participating artists. 
The residency program aims to further the professional
development of artists by: enabling the creation and
production of new work; fostering an exchange of ideas
and influences; encouraging the sharing of expertise;
inspiring new works of art and creative
collaborations; and building relationships between
artists working in different media. The program is
designed and managed by Artscape and takes place for a
single 30-day term each calendar year at the Gibraltar
Point Centre for the Arts on Toronto Island.


ABOUT THE GIBRALTAR POINT CENTRE FOR THE ARTS AND
TORONTO ISLAND
Situated on the south-western beachfront of Toronto
Island, The Gibraltar Point Centre for the Arts owes
its name to its location marked by Toronto's oldest
landmark - the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, which was
erected in 1808. Operated by Artscape, this 30,000
square foot unique facility provides permanent studio
space to more than a dozen artists and a Retreat
Centre, which can be rented for a variety of
functions. In addition to hosting the Residency
Program, the Gibraltar Point Centre for the Arts
features Artscape Lodge; a short-term rental service
with accommodation and work studios for up to 13
visiting artists. 

Toronto Island is a peaceful 230-hectare natural park
in Toronto's harbour, a short 15-minute ferry ride
from the thriving downtown core of Canada?s cultural
capital. The Island is part of the Carolinian Zone
which includes flora and fauna not found anywhere else
in Canada. Naturalized areas and wildlife reserves
make it a popular stopover point for southern song
birds. The Island is also home to approximately 800
individuals whose remarkable community boasts one of
the highest per capita populations of artists in
Canada and is the largest urban car-free community in
North America. 

Submission Deadline: February 10th, 2006, 4p.m.
