Are you an artist of almost any kind, in pretty much any medium? If so, this is for you. Keep reading.
Once again, Toronto Public Library, the Neighbourhood Arts Network and Culture Days are working together to help artists and arts groups share their creative work with the public in the free and accessible spaces of the library. Last year, more than 2,000 people took part in Culture Days @ the Library. They got the inside story on weaving, origami, bookbinding, violin improv, toy pianos, stone carving, French folk music, storytelling, writing and dozens of other activities. Our 2011 Culture Days blog postings will give you a sense of some of these activities.
We want to replicate that incredible range of artistic talent again this year, and so we are again inviting artists and cultural creators of all kinds to get involved.
It's easy to apply ... and the April 30 deadling is coming up soon so don't delay. The main thing is that your activity should be interactive. This could mean that your audience tries their hand at a craft or musical activity or that you simply explain how you do your work. You might conduct a mini-lesson in your craft or give a demonstration. The application is online--just fill it out and click submit.
