About this event

Thinking of applying to the 61st edition of Canada’s longest-running contemporary outdoor art fair and fastest-growing art platform? Join our info session to learn more about the Fair, and how to create a strong application.

This is a virtual information session with a mock jury that includes some of TOAF’s former jurors, to give you insight on how to prepare a winning application, from great photos, booth/installation image, to curating your portfolio for success. You will get a first-hand peek at what a jury session at TOAF looks like and what our jurors are looking for.

Email us to sign up for app camp for free or register on eventbrite by donation/Pay-what-you-can. Toronto Outdoor Art Fair is a registered charitable nonprofit.

A link to the Zoom session will be emailed to you on the day of the event.
