Calls For Artists

Call To Artists November 2021

Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba, with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, mounts monthly online exhibitions to showcase the work of Canadian artists with disabilities.  Our goal is to increase awareness of the amazing artworks being created by artists with disabilities, and to decrease barriers to participation in the arts for both makers and audiences. 

Emerging and established artists of all disciplines are welcome to submit work for consideration.  Submissions are reviewed by an AANM committee.  Selected artists will receive CARFAC artist fees, and limited assistance with documentation/presentation of work if necessary.  We thank you for your interest.  Only selected artists will receive notification, however we will keep all submissions on file for consideration for future shows. The deadline is ongoing; we will be reviewing submissions on December 15, 2021 (Jury: Debbie Patterson, Kristin Nelson, Mariana Muñoz Gomez), and February 18, 2022 (Jury TBA), with one artists selected each month for the 2021/22 year from the total pool of applicants up to February 18.

Artists must be AANM members to show with us. Free and sliding-scale memberships are available to those facing financial barriers. View membership options and renew memberships here https://aanm.ca/join-aanm-today/.
