Left of Centre, a 2-year artist incubator for emerging Black artists—Call for Applications

Left of Centre is a two-year artist incubation project which combines professional development, creative consulting, critical feedback, and seed funding to support the careers of emerging Black artists living within Toronto or the GTA.

We know that Black artists are more likely to be self-taught, less likely to receive mentorship or secure significant opportunities to showcase their work. That’s why Nia Centre for the Arts is launching Left of Centre, developed in collaboration with Black artists and advisors, across a wide range of disciplines. Left of Centre seeks to support emerging Black artists in navigating traditional and non-traditional art spaces and institutions, securing funding for their work, developing their artistic practices, and continuing to inspire our creative community.

The Creative Catalyst stream is application-based, and best suited towards emerging artists who have made a commitment towards establishing their artistic careers, are currently working on new work or building on existing work, and looking to regularly engage with an artistic consultant.
