The not-for-profit Bloorcourt BIA needs some help with creating a poster. And not just any poster: it will be a pretty large poster that is located at the Bloor/Dufferin transit shelter, facing eastward, on the south-west corner.
The theme is to highlight shopping, eating, celebrating, and supporting our local Bloordale community for the fall/winter season.
Submit your application here until September 6th, 2020.
The successful artist/designer will be provided with a $250 honorarium
**The successful recipient of this open call agrees to work with the third party printing agency to ensure that the poster meets the necessary file/design requirements. The BIA will also retain rights to the image to be used on social media, website or other promotional materials to highlight and celebrate the community. Credit will be given to the creator of the artwork.
If you have any questions, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

The year 2020 will be an exciting year for Bloorcourt! For the past couple of years, we have been planning for the installation for three parkettes in the neighbourhood.
Inspiration for the elements of the parkette designs draws on the imagery of a local fruit market and the recent Rosina Shopkeeper research project with Heritage Toronto.
Construction for the parkettes is slated to begin in spring 2020. We look forward to seeing people enjoying the parkettes once they are complete.
These are made possible with a partnership with the City of Toronto BIA Office.
