Job Opportunities

The Mississauga Arts Council is looking for volunteers for our upcoming events: MARTYS and MACArts Festival, all happening in May 2016. If you are interested please fill out our volunteer form.

Festival 2016 Call for Submissions: Artists from around the world are invited to submit bodies of work, installations or individual pieces to the festival. The three curators will draw from the pool of submissions to create different thematic group exhibitions. We also mount dozens of solo shows in the corridor galleries. Something that’s different about World of Threads is that we let the art guide us. We don’t have predetermined curatorial ideas or impose our concepts on the artists. Each festival is a blank slate. Shows develop entirely out of the submissions received. Your work might inspire an entire exhibition! We’re also open to work that is not made of fibre materials but instead uses techniques of fibre like sewing and weaving. Festival 2016 will be focused around Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre in Oakville, Ontario. In addition to the beautiful gallery, we will be using the Display Area (a large open gallery), the Corridor Galleries and other public space in the facility. There will also be one exhibition in Mississauga at The Living Arts Centre. Deadline: Sat. Apr. 30, 2016 at midnight! Click here for full submission info: Submissions Page
