Indigenous Artist In The Park: Call for Proposals The Office of Social Innovation (OSI) invites Toronto-based Indigenous artists to submit proposals for a five-month, site-specific visual arts project hosted in Allan Gardens.

Imagine the Park aims to foster a more welcoming, creative, well-resourced green space for the wider Allan Gardens community.The deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 27, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET.
