Do you have a space that you would like to see activated with design during the Festival?
Do you have a project you want to present at the Festival, and need a place to show it?
Let us be your matchmaker! Through the Venue-Designer Matchmaking Program, DesignTO pairs designers with a venue to host their project during the Festival.
How this works:
Venues express their interest in hosting a project during the Festival by applying to the Call for Host Venues. Potential venues include spaces such as shops, galleries, studios, cafés, schools, and lobbies.
Application Deadline: July 9, 2021
DesignTO compiles a Host Venue Package, which lists venues with images and descriptions. The Host Venue Package is released with the Call for Guest Designers on July 19, 2021.
Designers submit their proposals through the Call for Guest Designers. Guest designers should apply early to increase the likelihood that they will be matched with their preferred host venue.
Application Deadline: Rolling deadline, with final applications due September 13, 2021
DesignTO makes every effort to create successful outcomes for those who apply through the Venue-Designer Matchmaking Program, however, we can not guarantee that all applicants will be matched.
