Call for Proposals  

Calling all artists with a passion for science and delight! 

TELUS Spark, also known and loved as the Calgary Science Centre, will be hosting two artists in residence - one this fall and one in the winter of 2020. Applications are now being invited! The deadline to apply is May 27, 2019. 

Each residency requires 20 days minimum working at Spark on an artwork that will engage visitors at the intersection of art and science on the topic of energy efficiency and renewable energy. The goal is to spark conversation! And inspire. The resulting artwork will be shared with visitors for up to a year following the residency. Collaborations between artists and visitors and Spark staff are encouraged to be engaging both in the development and exhibition of the final work. 

Individual artists and artist collectives are encouraged to apply. Please find the Call for Proposals form here, which includes project description, timeline, budget, submission requirements, and details on the selection process. 

Please contact Josephine Tsang or Vince Iannelli with any questions or clarifications. The deadline for this application is Monday, May 27 at 8 am MDT.
