w.a.v.e.s. 2016 – Call for Artists

The City of Windsor announces a call for w.a.v.e.s. 2016 (Windsor’s Artists, Visions, Energies & Sculptures), a two-day festival connecting communities through waves of art, culture, and technology.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 31 Mar 2016

The City of Windsor is seeking outdoor projects that will transform and illuminate the Windsor Sculpture Park in new ways to inspire and engage the public in examining its cultural significance. Activities and opportunities for community engagement and hands-on experience are encouraged.

Potential projects could include:

  • Light, video or interactive installations
  • Multimedia or interactive performances
  • Works that utilize mobile performances
  • Kid-friendly or educational workshops
  • Sound or performance art
  • The unexpected

The festival will be held Friday September 30 and Saturday October 1, 2016 at 4 PM – 11PM at Windsor Sculpture Park (on the border of Detroit, MI).

Successful applicants for this open call will receive funding for their participation and be determined under one of the following categories:

  • Large installation or performance = $4000
  • Emerging artists or community groups = $1500
  • Individual or student-led projects = $500

The Windsor Sculpture Park is ending its final year in the fulfillment of a bequest to give the park back to its residents. This showcase is for contributing artists who can re-imagine the space and coordinate installations or activities that transform how we view the park. The Windsor Sculpture Park sits on the banks of the Detroit River in a lush green space with the Detroit skyline on the horizon. Our community is the longest-running inhabited land in the country. We are the gateway to Canada.
