Hello everyone! We have an exciting event coming up this weekend! The release of the the publication SWAP by OCADu First Generation Students at XPACE, 303 Landsdowne Ave. There will be food, drinks and music by DJ BJ (Sarah D’Angelo) and Playful PetchaKucha presentations by the artists begin at 6:30 p.m.
The First Generation Program at OCAD University delivers programs designed to enrich the academic experience for students whose parents have not attended university or college, and for the entire OCAD U student population.
Through this publication, First Generation Art and Design students were invited to produce works within the theme of ‘SWAP’, considering any exchange of giving and getting and the act of reciprocity. This theme could have been interpreted anyway the participants wished, and be expressed in any medium, resulting in a vibrantly diverse range of reflections.
The publication is printed as a limited-edition risograph bookwork, to be launched at this event. The night will also feature a PechaKucha where interested publication participants will have the opportunity to speak about their work, their inspiration and anything else they choose! PechaKucha is a fast paced and fun presentation style in which each participant talks about 20 slides, which are each shown for only 20 seconds – six minutes and 40 seconds in total.

PULP PAPER ART PARTY – Toronto, ON
PULP is an Art Party organized by Toronto Architecture and Design students at Metropolis Factory (50 Edwin Ave.) on April 27th 2013. They are looking for designs for installations and furniture (and cloth too) made of reclaimed material, mainly paper. Video art submissions are also being accepted to be projected on a screen and/or on the paper installations. Anyone can submit a design. Materials: A team of volunteers is collecting paper and cardboard. A generic material we will have available are (printed) 11/17 sheets. We will appreciate artists who come up with reclaimed materials by themselves. Clean the streets, make it into art! Designers are asked to provide a short text description and any conceptual drawings and models (photos or 3D images) conveying the intention and plausibility of their designs. Type and number of images are up to the design teams. Please provide JPGs or PDFs.
They will only have the day of the event to set up. Designs must take this into account and be constructed quickly, or created in studio and assembled on site. Designs must be free standing, unique temporary spaces.
Submission Deadline: April 14th, 2013

Arts Council Windsor & Region (ACWR), Broken City Lab (BCL) and The City of Windsor are pleased to announce the launch of Neighbourhood Spaces: Windsor & Region Artist in Residence Program, a new initiative that will locate ten chosen artists in community sites throughout Windsor and Essex County in Ontario, for 4-6 week artist residences. Supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, this new program will allow artists to
pursue research and/or create work(s) that engage, explore and connect with local communities. The program is inviting applications from Canadian artists of all disciplines including visual, performing, literary, music, interdisciplinary and media arts.
Neighbourhood Spaces will embed artists in community sites such as parks, nature reserves, libraries, health or community centres. These sites will provide a “home base” for each artist to work during their residency, while also allowing the artist to take on diverse roles, engaging with community members in various ways to animate, explore and inspire the specific stories, curiosities, challenges and triumphs of the local community.
Curated by Broken City Lab, residencies will begin in summer 2013 and be staggered throughout the year, concluding in August 2014. There is no application or residency fee. Each artist will receive $4750, which includes an artist fee and funding to assist in covering travel, housing (for the duration of the residency), material and per diem expenses. While housing is not provided, Neighbourhood Spaces is available to assist
artists in finding accommodations. A final exhibition and symposium will be held in the fall of 2014 and an online publication will be created documenting the program.
Papirmasse shares space with Paper Pusher, an exciting small publishing house and risograph print shop located in Little Italy in the heart of Toronto. This is a great opportunity to learn how to thrive as a small press producer and pick up tips on making it in the art world post-school!
