Main Squared is calling all East End artists

Calling all East End artists: the deadline for Main Squared, a new multidisciplinary 10-day public art festival, is May 18.

The interactive festival, produced by East End Arts and curated by Labspace Studio, will “activate and explore the under-used public square on the corner of Main Street and Danforth Avenue,” asking “residents, community members and the general public to reimagine the square as a space for social engagement, discourse, and civic activism.”

Organizers are looking for area artists and collectives with site-specific projects that fall in line with the “public square” theme of the festival.

Project spaces include the walls and empty storefronts at Main Square, at the corner of Main and Danforth, and funding is available.
