Call to Artists: YLDE Fundraiser


Young Lungs Dance Exchange is planning for our annual fundraising event, a cherished community gathering, and celebratory reunion. As always, our 2017 fundraiser is an open door to artists of all mediums to feature, share and experiment with new work. The evening will be a mix of interactive art creations, music and dance. We invite those who want to share a short performance, video presentation, durational work, or installation.

Over the past 13 years, Young Lungs Dance Exchange has continuously evolved and transformed to find new ways to support and encourage embodied art experiences. This year, Young Lungs has put an emphasis on having our own studio, allowing for participating artists to have a neutral place to play, experiment, and call home as they dive into their creative research. Our fundraising efforts will go towards having a studio space to call our own for our upcoming Research Series.

If you are an artist interested in participating in our fundraising event, and sharing your work, please submit a brief description of the work you want to present. Please specify if it will be an installation, durational, or short (less than 10 minutes) performance. Spots are limited, we hope to design the evening’s program around the artists interested in presenting work. That said, the night is only so long! Therefore, artists will be programmed on a first come, first serve basis. Because of the fundraising nature of the event, we unfortunately do not have an honourarium to offer participating artists, but we promise to treat you like art royalty!!

Interested artists, please submit your interest by October 10th, 2017

Details on the Fundraiser: When – 8pm - midnight on November 11 Where - 618 Arlington St.
