The STEPS Initiative is an award-winning charity that bridges arts, community, and city-building by animating unlikely spaces with unlikely partners. We seek to inspire cities across Canada and around the world to create welcoming public spaces that reflect and celebrate local communities through artistic excellence. As such, we are responsible for some of Canada’s largest and most community-engaged public art initiatives. Summer 2019 is an exciting time for us, as it is when many of our projects will be produced.
We’re looking for emerging artists interested in supporting the development of several community-engaged / public art initiatives over summer 2019. Public Art Assistants will gain experience working with diverse artists, artistic media and community partners. The Public Art Assistant will learn how public art projects are planned and implemented, engaging community members from across the Greater Toronto Area.
