Calls for Submissions & Opportunities With Latitude 53
As an experimentally-focused and risk-taking artist-run centre, Latitude 53 frequently opens calls for submissions for projects of many kinds.
We maintain open calls for submissions to the Main Space, ProjEx Room, and Community Gallery, the three exhibition spaces at our gallery. Our programming advisory committee meets twice each year (April 30 and September 30) to consider proposals for our two primary gallery spaces. For more information, please see our our calls for submissions for these spaces.
Calls for Submission
OPEN CALL to Alberta artists that use visual art to change how people think about our world
Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC is partnering with Latitude 53 to stage a 3 – 5 person exhibition opening at the beginning of June 2017 at Latitude 53.
We are interested in artists that use art to question new political realities (locally, nationally, internationally) and who have a unique perspective that is under-represented or unrecognized within current exhibition and curatorial practices. Special consideration will be given to artists operating from positions that may be termed marginalized or otherwise outside dominant cultural narratives.
To have your work considered for this exhibition send in one email to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before midnight Tuesday April 24, 2017. Please title the email “RE: Trumpet submission” and include the following items:
Exhibition royalty fees will be paid in accordance with the current CARFAC minimum fee schedule.
- Latitude 53 is also seeking a Development Coordinator on a permanent, 0.7 full time (24 hours weekly) basis. Read the full call. This position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.
- Latitude 53 is also seeking a Administrative Coordinator on a permanent, full time basis. Read the full call. Application deadline is March 09 at 5pm.
We are looking for candidates with experience in marketing, communications, stage management, or within the Edmonton music community who are enthused about event planning and becoming an ambassador for Latitude 53.
If you are interested in joining a team of creative and passionate volunteers, please email email@example.com to apply. Position will remain open until filled.
Other artist-run-centres and allied organizations have calls for submissions as well; if you are a practicing artist seeking a project, we recommend visiting the calls for submissions board maintained by Art Rubicon Magazine which collates calls from a number of Albertan and Canadian organizations.
