Featuring songs from the original musical, by Dave Deveau and Anton Lipovetsky, as well as seasonal favourites, this brand new holiday treat will have audiences singing and dancing all December long.

“An adoring tribute…
flamboyantly fun”
(Praise for Elbow Room Café: The Musical) 

Out Innerspace Dance Theatre


Vancouver’s Out Innerspace Dance Theatre combines virtuosic, hyper-detailed choreography with visual magic to make engaging dance works which reflect a time of rapid change, of ever-shifting boundaries, and of conflict and hope. Bygones is a new work created and performed by co-directors David Raymond and Tiffany Tregarthen in collaboration with dancers Renée Sigouin, Elya Grant and David Harvey. It considers how we are shaped by what we have overcome: and how something challenging can lead to something beautiful. Innovative movement, ghostly architecture, and transformed objects immerse us in a haunting universe of pseudo-things and supernatural selves existing on the margins of form and formlessness.

Join us on Friday, November 8 from 6pm to 9pm for the opening reception of You, Me & Us,

Gallery Gachet celebrates over two decades of collectivity in art and culture this year with

sculpture, installation, photography, text, comics, found objects, sound, and process-based work
from 17 of the artists who run this valued community–based art centre.
The artworks presented contend with form and process and address themes of collectivity
intra- and interspecies relations, ecological consciousness, Indigenous kinship, memory, and mental
health, as well as destigmatization and safe supply in the context of the opioid crisis, and art as a practice
of survival. Many of the artists who connect with Gallery Gachet are self-taught or working differently
than academic and institutional conventions. You, Me & Us is a title borrowed from the work of collective
member Karen Irving, whose oil painting conveys the relationships whales have with themselves,
with each other, and with different fish in the sea.
Artists: Sharon Burns, Stella Castell, Haisla Collins, Elizabeth Dodds, Edzy Edzed, Bernadine Fox,
Karen Irving, Pierre Leichner, Quin Martins, Daniel Orduña, Heather Pelles, Chav Petkov, Bill Pope,

West Vancouver Community Centre – Public Art Project

The District of West Vancouver invites expressions of interest from artists or artist teams to design and integrate a site-specific public art at the West Vancouver Community Centre (Community Centre) located at 2121 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, BC.

  • Reside in Canada.
  • Have an understanding of the vision and themes as stated below.

The site for the public art is at the exterior of the south entrance to the West Vancouver Community Centre on the lawn leading to the West Vancouver Seniors’ Activity Centre. Adjacent to the designated site is an existing water fountain that is located immediately outside the community centre that also has outdoor seating for a café in the summer months and is busy with children playing around the fountain.

The installation will engage the local community, users, and visitors to the Community Centre.

The Artwork – Vision and Themes

The District of West Vancouver and West Vancouver Community Centres Services Society (WVCCS) is seeking an ENGAGING AND INTERACTIVEpiece of art that is welcoming and inclusive to the local community, users and visitors to the Community Centre. Submissions should:

  • Provide a beautiful and interesting piece of public art balanced with the ability to be engaging and interactive for an area that is a gathering place for people of all ages. This piece is not intended to be a play structure but will be in a location with many children who will want to engage with the piece.

Other considerations:

  • May be more than one piece.
  • The piece(s) can vary in size but final installation should be large enough to have a significant visual presence to command attention from people passing by.
  • The piece(s) could include community involvement during development. For example, by incorporating input from the community, users, and visitors to the Community Centre and/or an artist in residence element during all or select phases of implementation.
  • There is no preference for materials but the piece(s) must not: endanger the public, require unreasonable maintenance and must be vandal-resistant, easily and efficiently protected and preserved.

The maximum budget is inclusive of all artists’ fees, technical consulting, insurance requirements, fabrication, site preparation, installation, documentation, travel expenses, taxes, and all other related costs.

Call for Submissions: Vector Festival 2020 – After Gamification


Vector Festival 2019 exhibition The Great Derangement at Electric Perfume. Artwork: Zeesy Powers, This Could Be You, 2017. Photography by Yuula Benivolski.


Deadline: February 01, 2020

Vector Festival is an annual media arts event dedicated to showcasing experimental art works that engage critically with digital technologies.

The festival is proudly participatory and community-oriented. Hosted by InterAccess and co-curated by Katie Micak and Martin Zeilinger, Vector Festival takes place at arts venues and in public spaces across the City of Toronto.

Since its inception, Vector Festival has been innovative in its inclusion of game-based digital art alongside other new media disciplines. Continuing this focus for the 2020 edition, the festival’s curators pose a deceptively simple question: what comes after gamification?

Now that game culture and game technologies have become so pervasive in popular culture, how do experimental media artists respond critically to the rampant gamifying of everyday life? From online social interaction to digital finance, from education to military conflict, from politics and environmental issues to the ways in which humans (and machines) express themselves creatively, what comes after gamification?

The Festival will take place between July 16-19, 2020, with the flagship exhibition extended until August 22, 2020.

Please note that Vector Festival does not charge submission fees to artists applying to participate.

All artists and curators selected for participation will receive fees in accordance with the up-to-date CARFAC Fee schedule, as well as support to apply for external funding.

We invite art submissions of digital – and post-digital – works for the following festival categories:

Flagship Exhibition
Digital and post-digital art works including interactive installations, experimental game mods, sculptural work, screen-based work, sound art, etc.

Online Projects
Web-based projects and digital artworks that can be presented online, including experimental interactive and time-based digital projects.

Festival Screening
Experimental film/video/machinima works.

Performance-based proposals including chiptune, sound art, live coding, A/V performances, and telematic performances for virtual and public spaces.

Site-Specific Outdoor Screening
To be presented on two large-scale (4.88 x 8.64 m) outdoor LED screens for a public audience of all ages.

Animated GIFs intended for presentation on public screens across Toronto.

Curatorial submissions
This year, we also invite curators/curatorial collectives to submit proposals for machinima screenings (on a theme of your choosing). If you are considering a curatorial submission, we encourage you to contact the Vector Festival team for additional practical details.


Please submit the following details using our online application form:

  • Project description (approximately 300 words)
  • Documentation (maximum of five images, and/or link to audio/video documentation)
  • Description of technical requirements (please outline materials provided by the artist and materials required from the exhibiting venue)
  • Artist biography (approximately 100 words)
  • Please indicate if your work has a thematic, conceptual, or historical connection to Toronto, or if you have a biographic connection to the Greater Toronto Area

Call for Submissions: PASSAGES INSOLITES 2020


CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – Temporary Public Art

Deadline: December 9, 2019, 4:59 p.m.

EXMURO arts publics is now planning the summer 2020 edition of PASSAGES INSOLITES (Unusual Passages), an annual circuit of public art installations. The selected works will be displayed throughout Québec City’s old town (the Old Port, Place-Royale, and Petit-Champlain) and the Saint-Roch district (Click here for Google Maps link).

Every year since 2014, PASSAGES INSOLITES has presented larger-than-life public artworks that powerfully and assert the freedom of art and its important place in the urban landscape.

EXMURO is calling on visual artists in all disciplines to submit large-scale works that explore the project’s two central ideas: a “passage” is a place spectators pass through, while “insolite” describes the surreal, whimsical, extraordinary experience spectators enjoy while transiting through physical, metaphorical, or virtual passages. Artists are encouraged to freely interpret these ideas to produce their own signature “passage insolite”.

For the 2020 edition, EXMURO is looking for bold, engaged work that explores one or more of the fundamental issues facing humankind today. From social and cultural issues to environmental concerns, EXMURO pays special attention to work that defies convention, surprises us and destabilizes our points of reference while raising important questions about the world we live in and our place in it.


Created in 2014, PASSAGES INSOLITES is about creating intriguing, playful temporary public art installations that enliven the district while fostering dialogue about our relationships to urban space and the world around us. This popular high-profile annual event is accessible to all and gives visitors a unique, visually stunning public art experience.


  • The selected works will be displayed throughout Québec City’s old town (made up of the Old Port, Place-Royale, and Petit-Champlain) and Saint-Roch district. Artists may submit site-specific works tailored to a location, or projects adaptable to various locations (parks, sidewalks, roofs, façades, public squares, docks, etc.).
  • Locations can be selected from those used in previous editions (, or new locations can be proposed (subject to approval). Multi-section works designed to be experienced in more than one location will be considered. Applicants may contact EXMURO to discuss their choice of location prior to submitting their project.
  • A budget of $5,000 to $25,000 will be allocated, based on the project value and size. The budget you submit must include exhibition fees (around 10%), production fees, artist fees, and installation and takedown fees. EXMURO will act as an artistic and technical resource and monitor progress throughout the production process.
  • Public artworks must be durable (to last 4 months outside), safe, and self-sufficient (not requiring surveillance of any kind.)
  • A workshop will be available for the selected artists to produce the work.
  • EXMURO does accept previously produced work, so long as it has never been presented anywhere in Quebec City. Other than exhibition fees and installation and takedown fees, budgets for existing work must include all transportation fees.
  • Applications will be assessed based on the following criteria:
    – Artistic quality and impact
    – Connection with one or more contemporary issues
    – Technical feasibility
    – Realistic budget


Submission package must be emailed or sended by Wetransfer to
Deadline: December 9, 2019, 4:59 p.m.

  • Preferred location (if applicable)
  • Maximum 5 images of recent work (format: .jpg)

Submissions now open for Vallum issue 17:1, "Home"
“Our house is our corner of the world… our first universe, a real cosmos in every sense of the word. If we look at it intimately, the humblest dwelling has beauty.”
- Gaston Bachelard
Home isn’t necessarily a house; our homes can be forged in the most unlikely of places. Sometimes we find shelter in people, in things. Maybe our idea of home exists in multitudes as different objects or spaces — maybe now, or merely as memory. In this issue, we want to explore what these homes are, and what they mean to us.
The editors at Vallum are committed to enriching and continuing the tradition of poetry in the present day. We welcome submissions that deepen our understanding of what poetry is and can be. We encourage Indigenous writers, writers of colour, gender non-conforming writers, differently-abled writers, LGBTQ+ writers, writers with mental or physical illnesses, and writers who are otherwise affected by structural inequality to submit their work for consideration.

For more information about the theme, see here. For complete submission guidelines, see here.

Phoebe Gloeckner
''Her drawing conveys a lot of the underlying feeling of what's going on in the same way a movie can have a shot without dialogue that's a major turning point or a major insight into a character. It's a delicate balancing act. The pictures have to propel the story without overtaking it. That balance -- it's almost a tension -- occurs when a cartoonist is equally good as a writer and artist, and it's very rare.'' – Bill Griffith, the creator of Zippy the Pinhead.
