Submit your animation project to the TAIS Artist in Residence Call for Proposals.

This program supports the production of new animated work by artists through a combination of funding and in-kind resources.

The fourth year of the Toronto Animated Image Society program is seeking ONE (1) Canadian artist and ONE (1) International artist to both engage in self-directed work, towards the completion of a new independent animated film or video. This residency comes with a combination of monetary funding and in-kind use of studio space, equipment and resources at TAIS Studios, located at 1411 Dufferin Street, in downtown Toronto.

PROGRAM DETAILS

  • The Canadian Artist Residency is three-months long, taking place over consecutive months between April 2018 and October 2018. The goal for this Canadian Artist Residency is to emerge with a finished work. The selected Canadian artist will be awarded with $9,000, comprised of $3,000 in-kind towards 3-months of studio space, equipment and resources at TAIS Studios, and $6,000 in cash funding for the project.
  • The International Artist Residency is one-month long, and will take place over consecutive weeks between April 2018 and October 2018. The goal for this International Artist Residency is to experiment with the resources available at TAIS to advance or complete a work. The selected International artist will be awarded with $3,500, comprised of $1,500 in-kind towards studio space, equipment and resources at TAIS Studios, and $2,000 in cash funding for the project.

REQUIRED

  • Applicants must be TAIS members (of any level) to be eligible; non-members wishing to apply may register for membership. Member fees: $20/year Supporting Membership, $50/year Studio Membership.
  • For this Residency program, it is imperative that the selected artist(s) plan to interact and experiment with TAIS equipment and resources. Proposals that are strictly research or pre-production without any actual production component are not eligible.
  • Proposals must be for projects that are entirely or predominantly involving animation production. Multi or mixed media proposals are welcome, however the work must be considered as an animated project (involving the illusion of motion and/or change by means of the rapid succession of sequential images)
  • The Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS), and any funding sponsors of the program, must be acknowledged in the finished work. Details: http://tais.ca/acknowledging-tais/
  • TAIS will retain a copy of the final work for archiving, dissemination, and presentation.
  • Applicants should note that those selected as a result of this call will be offered a residency that is conditional, pending grant fundraising success by TAIS. In the event of success, the terms for the accepted proposal will be reviewed and confirmed by both parties in advance of the residency start date.

ELIGIBILITY

  • Travel and accommodations are not covered expenses within the funding of this program. Materials support is limited.
  • The selected artist is able to contribute additional funding from other sources. TAIS will provide letters of support as needed, toward additional funding for the artist.
  • Projects servicing a third-party producer are not eligible; the work must remain in the artistic control of the artist.
  • Proposals that are strictly research or pre-production without any actual production component are not eligible.
  • Only production and experimentation that takes place at TAIS Studios is eligible for support as part of this program (access to the studios will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, throughout the residency period).
