HxBIA releases call for submissions, public art and cultural events

Do you have an awesome idea to improve our public spaces, create public art, or have a cultural event that would be a great fit for the Hastings Crossing Area? Whether you are a not-for-profit, school, social enterprise or just an engaged group of citizens, we want to hear from with you! We may be able to help, because a portion of our budget has been itemized for YOUR IDEAS.

The Hastings Crossing Business Improvement Association (HxBIA) is accepting project proposals, as long as they are on public land/property within the Victory Square Park/DTES area in which we operate. We are a BIA that embraces edginess, innovation, diversity, urban culture and community. Your idea may be focused on art, culture, performance or thinking innovatively about a public space. If your idea is chosen, the HxBIA’s Public Spaces/Public Art Committee will partner with you. Depending on the project this may include providing funding, driving exposure and providing directional oversight and other forms of support.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted within four (4) weeks of the response deadline and may be asked to provide supplementary information and/or be requested for an interview.   Questions regarding this Call for Submission can be directed to  to [email protected]
