Call for Makers, Artists and Crafters ArtsJunktion

Call for Makers, Artists and Crafters.

ArtsJunktion is a local creative reuse depot, focused on community building and increasing
access to arts programming for people who have been traditionally excluded and isolated from
access to the arts.
ArtsJunktion hosts two types of workshops: ArtHives and Teacher Workshops. ArtHives are
free, drop-in workshops for people of all experiences and skill levels. The focus of these
workshops is to build strong and resilient communities through creativity. ArtHives happen
twice a month, from 5-9pm. Day Workshops* are a fee-based education and creative
development opportunity for teachers, educators, support workers, and general community
members. These day-time (9am-3pm) workshops are for people of all experiences and skill
levels, and typically focus on specific art techniques and classroom/workplace application. Note
that both workshops provide all materials.
ArtsJunktion is looking to hire artists, crafters, and makers of all kinds for our art programming.

oppression, colonization, and white supremacy. We recognize the importance of challenging
the dominant narratives that continue to be overrepresented in the arts. We will be prioritizing
BIPOC artists, and working on adhering to the Call to Action which encourages funding
Indigenous artists.
