2025 Thematic Exhibition Call for Submissions

Thematic Exhibition

In the midst of rapid technological advancement, relentless globalization, and the forces of colonization and capitalism, we are at a critical juncture where certain artistic and material practices face the threat of extinction. Throughout history, these practices have held profound significance, shaping communities and narratives. This exhibition explores endangered creative practices and materials.

Preservation goes beyond maintaining the past. Preservation is a commitment to honouring the cultural identities and histories that these practices and materials embody. ‘REVIVE’ is a call to action to preserve and celebrate sacred and vulnerable creative practices and materials, as it is crucial that we recognize and safeguard them, ensuring they continue to thrive and inspire future generations.


Call for submissions

DesignTO invites submissions from artists and designers working in all mediums and formats.

Submissions of existing work or realized projects are preferred; however, we will consider submissions of new work and speculative projects.

The exhibition runs January 24 – March 30, 2025, as part of the DesignTO Festival, January 24 – February 2, 2025, and is co-presented with Harbourfront Centre.
