Radiant Rural Halls: Call for Submissions 🏠

this town is small presents Radiant Rural Halls: Call for Submissions for 2023 – Deadline Sunday, November 20, 2022, at Midnight AST

Call for Submissions Radiant Rural Halls Deadline November 20

About Radiant Rural Halls

this town is small (TTIS) artist-run centre is seeking proposals for the second edition of Radiant Rural Halls. This project will consist of a series of contemporary art projects and events presented at rural community halls in PEI. The presentations will take place between February and April 2023, with exact dates and venues to be confirmed. Radiance refers to emanating light, warmth, and joy. We see community halls themselves as having a radiant quality and we are seeking works that engage with this idea, as well as with the liveliness and histories of the halls and their surrounding communities.

We encourage proposals in artistic mediums such as installation, media arts, and performance. Proposals for participatory projects and events such as workshops, demonstrations, presentations, and storytelling are also highly encouraged. A printed publication featuring original writing and documentation will be created as an extension of the project.

About Community Halls

Selected works will be paired with the most appropriate community hall. For example, if a hall has a theatre space with a projector and sound system, a project that includes a performance with projections/sound would be prioritized. Community halls typically have limited wall space and capacity for exhibiting two-dimensional works. However, they are excellent gathering spaces and often have large meeting rooms, work tables and seating, theatres and/or stages, audio-visual equipment, and kitchens. Artists are encouraged to propose projects that make use of these unique facilities. To learn more about PEI’s network of community halls, visit the Association of Rural Community Halls (ARCH PEI).


Professional artists residing in Canada are eligible to apply, and artists with connections to rural communities will be prioritized. We consider a professional artist to meet a combination of the following criteria (as defined by the Canada Council of the Arts): have specialized training in their artistic field (not necessarily in academic institutions); be recognized as a professional by their peers (artists working in the same artistic tradition); be committed to devoting more time to artistic activity, if possible financially; and have a history of public presentation or publication.

Submissions will be reviewed by a jury of professional artists and community representatives and scored based on the following criteria: artistic and thematic merit, achievability/feasibility, and impact.

TTIS is committed to equal opportunities and we encourage applicants who are Indigenous, members of visible minorities, LGBTQ2SIA+, and persons with disabilities to apply.

How to Apply

Call for Submissions Deadline: Sunday, November 20, 2022, at Midnight AST

  4. Maximum of 10 images (.JPEGs) or audio/visual samples related to the proposal (e.g. works being submitted, works-in-progress being submitted, mock-up drawings, similar past works/presentations, etc.)
