Call for artist teams: COLLAB-19, an online residency by Artengine and En Masse

Exploring unconventional collaborative art making across the gap of social distancing.


Deadline: July 6, 2020

Artengine and EN MASSE would like to invite artist teams to submit to an experimental residency program called COLLAB-19, a direct response to the pandemic and the ways visual artists must evolve with the changing times, making work that must be communicated through online platforms and emerging digital realities. The goal of COLLAB-19 is to foster meaningful collaborations between artists as we draw together in a time of need, learning and growing from each other through a process of cooperation, challenge, and play.

This 4-week residency lets artists find time to create together in hope of simple, pragmatic solutions and acts of solidarity among artists at every level of career. The goal of the residency is to explore shared creativity and build new perspectives on collaborative practice.

For applicants:

  • We welcome applications from artist teams of 2 artists or more, with a broad range of cultural perspectives and creative practices;
  • Selected participants will receive a fee of CAD 2000 per team, plus workshops and mentorship;
  • We especially welcome applications when you are underrepresented in institutional creativity.

Application deadline is July 6th, 2020
