Call for Participants: Fixer°3

Fixer°3
Call for Participants

Deadline for Applications: July 7, 2024 at 11:59pm EDT

Fixer is a gathering of image-makers, creatives, writers, and thinkers in an experiential critique session. Structured as an intimate, open dialogue between peers, Fixer brings together a group of lens-based artists presenting their works in the company of fellow artists and arts professionals. Critique and dialogue are integral components of Fixer; these sessions are built for feedback exchange to aid artists in the development of their projects and practice, to engage in collaborative assessments, and to sustain collective resource and knowledge-sharing while building community. Following the critique, the session culminates into a home-cooked feast prepared by halftone collective (Beau Gomez and Leila Fatemi). Additionally, each Fixer edition will be followed by a small-scale publication and a podcast episode, to archive the session and feature shared contributions on critique and the communal possibilities of image-making.

We are seeking QTBIPOC lens-based artists to participate as presenters for the third edition of Fixer.

If you are an artist currently developing a project/body of work involving photography, film, video, moving image, and are seeking critique and feedback from a community of fellow creatives, we encourage you to apply!

Click here for the Submission Form.

Fixer°3 will be held on September 7, 2024 in Toronto.

This is a paid opportunity and each participant will receive an honorarium of $700 for partaking in this session.

About halftone collective:
Comprised of visual artists and community workers Leila Fatemi and Beau Gomez, halftone collective aims to amplify conversation and dialogue to foster meaningful engagement and resource- and knowledge-sharing between image makers and the greater arts community. Born from a mutual desire to create inclusive spaces centered around care and community, we emphasize hosting/holding space for diverse voices and bodies to take part in collaborative and generative discourse, and encourage their creative voice without fear of judgment or exclusion. We believe in a non-hierarchical, peer-to-peer approach to extending and sustaining knowledge and care, challenging traditional artistic standards and opening up new possibilities for exploration and self-expression.
