Call for Artists and Performers: plazaPOPS
Scarborough Arts is pleased to partner with plazaPOPS for a series of music concerts, art activations, and community workshops at the Wexford Plaza parking lot in July and August!
plazaPOPS is a community-led project that aims to create a vibrant and colourful public gathering place in the Wexford Plaza parking lot. plazaPOPS will launch with Taste of Lawrence in early July and be popped up until mid-August. The final design is in process, but will include seating, shade, and a stage for performances, workshops, and community activations. plazaPOPS is funded by Park People’s Public Space Incubator, the City of Toronto’s BIA innovation fund, the University of Guelph and is partnered with the Wexford Heights BIA and Scarborough Arts.
plazaPOPS is looking for performers, artists, and musicians to bring their energy to the site, engaging passersby and responding to this bustling urban setting! As much as possible, they are looking to support Wexford and Scarborough grassroots artists from a wide range of styles but also encourage professional Scarborough artists that want to bring their art to the streets to apply. Activities will take place between July 5 and August 15 with three weekend activation days, two daytime concerts, and four weeknight concerts planned. Final schedule of events TBD.
Artists will be paid with an honorarium.
Interested? Get in touch with Brendan and Daniel at plazaPOPS@gmail.com or at 647-291-9314.
