DesignTO: 2023-24 Youth Call for Submissions

‘Unpacking Creative Practice’

‘Unpacking Creative Practice’ is the fifth edition of DesignTO Youth, a program that provides youth with access to creative disciplines and professionals. This workshop series will consist of 6 virtual sessions of group activities geared at demystifying the creative process and dissecting artistic practice. With input from both emerging and established artists and designers, we will explore different aspects of the role of artists and designers in society and how critical thinking can be used to generate creative solutions. With each session, expect to receive invaluable insight that will help you lay the foundation of a creative practice and move your ideas from concept to execution.

DesignTO and JAYU invite you to apply for our FREE program consisting of 6 online sessions (workshops featuring guest speakers) to help enhance your creative process, inspire your creation, develop skills, and build an application for the exhibition opportunity.


Exhibition Opportunity

Participants in the ‘Unpacking Creative Practice’ workshop series will be invited to apply to show their work in a group exhibition that will be featured as part of the 14th annual DesignTO Festival, January 19-28, 2024. This exhibition will be held at a gallery in Toronto. Note that only a selection of applications will be successful and that participation in the workshop series does not guarantee your participation in the exhibition. All youth in the program are invited to apply.
