Neutral Ground Artist-Run Centre
Call for Proposals: Main Gallery & Window Gallery

DEADLINE: May 1, 2023
For Proposal Guidelines and Submission forms please visit our website.

Located on Treaty 4 Territory, Neutral Ground is a not-for-profit, artist-run-centre that presents contemporary visual and media art. From the gallery in downtown Regina, Saskatchewan/Treaty 4 Territory we connect audiences to the presentation of interdisciplinary art from emerging and mid-career artists, and from established artists experimenting with or working outside of their normal practices.

Neutral Ground recognizes that many people face systemic forms of oppression due to intersecting imbalances of power. Neutral Ground values lived experiences and non-western ways of knowing and being as powerful sources of knowledge. The organization addresses imbalances through the representation of diverse identities within its programming, informed through the selection process. Neutral Ground is committed to promoting, exhibiting and presenting the work of systemically underrepresented artists inclusive of race, religion, national or ethnic origin, colour, education, gender, age or physical or mental disability, or any intersections of and beyond these identities.

(Please note that proposals from artists based outside of Canada will be considered only as budget and resources allow.)

Thanks to funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, Sask Arts and the City of Regina, Neutral Ground pays artist fees in accordance with the CARFAC fee schedule for level 1 gallery exhibitions.

Proposals received prior to 11:59 pm on May 1, 2023 will be assessed by a jury in consideration for the 2024-25 programming season. Proposals will be accepted for both the Main Gallery and the Window Gallery. Neutral Ground presents 4-5 exhibitions per year in our Main Gallery, as well as additional performances and special events. The Window Gallery presents up to 6 presentations per year.

As these spaces are drastically different please carefully review the features of each space when drafting a proposal. Artists may only submit proposals to one of the spaces per call. See below for physical descriptions and floor plans. In the interest of creating diverse programming, work that has been exhibited in Regina within the last four years is ineligible for programming. Artists are limited to one solo exhibition in any four-year period (i.e. Canada Council grant cycle).

Neutral Ground encourages submissions that are experimental, take risks, and that push the boundaries of artistic practices.

Questions about application details as well as inquiries into the feasibility of proposals may be directed to Interim Programming Director Emily Nestor Proposals are peer-reviewed and selected by a Programming Jury composed of members representing Neutral Ground’s diverse communities.
