A STEPS PROJECT
INsiders Artist Project
STEPS invites community members to create temporary public artworks to animate the public-facing parts of their homes during a time of physical distancing.
PROJECT AT A GLANCE
Location: Across Canada
Services: Creative Placemaking
submissions from across the country
artists supported from 3 provinces
selected multidisciplinary projects
In the beginning of April, we facilitated a national call for artists to create temporary public artworks in public-facing parts of their homes, gardens, balconies or courtyards. STEPS believes that while we may be physically distanced, our desire to create, share and learn will always connect us together.
Artists were asked to consider the idea of public space and their sudden lack of access to it, exploring their public-facing private spaces and how the surrounding community could engage from a distance with their creative projects. We received an overwhelming response of 120 submissions in only two weeks.
