Open Call for Submissions - Deadline extended to May 7, 2021!

OSAC’s Arts on the Move touring program is now accepting submissions. Professional and emerging artists are invited to submit exhibition proposals for a solo, two-person, or group touring exhibition. OSAC tours normally run up to 3 years, reaching anywhere between 10-20 communities throughout the province. *Submissions from the 2020 call will be included in this jury process. If you applied last year you do not need to apply again.

Priority will be given to submission that demonstrate viable workshop options and the availability of the artist to deliver programming.

Work must be suitable for touring, specifically regarding dimensions, durability, and installation concerns. All framed work must be under Plexi-glass, we will not tour work under glass. Any medium is welcome. The maximum size of artworks accepted is 36 inches x 36 inches.

A layout of an exhibition design is not necessary as the Arts on the Move program is responsible for the curation of the exhibition. Packing is also not required as we pack and crate all exhibitions. Browse current Arts on the Move exhibitions here. Keep in mind that these works will be in a diverse array of venues from schools to galleries to libraries.

  • Project proposal
