Artist Boot Camp: Applying for Public Art  with Takashi Iwasaki and Collin Zipp from STEPS Public Art

Wednesday, Nov 8, 2023, 7 – 9 pm online

 This workshop will provide practical advice on how to navigate public art competitions, and what happens after you are successful. How does the application process usually work? Calls for submissions often talk about community consultation—what does that mean? What are some of the considerations regarding materials and installation? Can I subcontract? Join us for two perspectives on public art that will help you figure out if it is a good fit for you and your practice.


Takashi Iwasaki has applied for public art commissions large and small in Canada and Asia. His projects include murals and scuptures that may appear abstract but have meanings and origins that are personally significant to him. Iwasaki also creates paintings, embroideries and sculptures that have been exhibited around the world.


Collin Zipp is the Public Art Manager at STEPS Public Art, a Toronto-based not-for-profit that commissions and manages public art projects, and is a practising artist who has created public art.
