Call for Submissions: What The Pop! A Pop-Up Boutique, Gallery and Performance for All

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 
Emerging artists working in any medium, and who are based in Quebec, are invited to submit to participate for FREE in our upcoming YES Art Pop-up series entitled WHAT THE POP! 

WHEN & WHERE?
On September 21st and 22nd 2018, three pop-up exhibitions, each showcasing a different group of artists, will take place in key Montreal neighbourhoods that are known hubs for arts and culture. 

WHAT IS A POP-UP?
Pop-up exhibitions emerged in the last decade out of a need for increased accessibility to art and art spaces, all with a do-it-yourself philosophy. A pop-up is a short-term, non-traditional exhibition, held in a temporary and often alternative location that can take on many forms. Examples of different types of pop-up exhibitions include:

•solo show     •group show     •craft sale     •product launch     •satellite exhibition for a museum or gallery

WHY WOULD I WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN A POP-UP?
Generally, pop-ups seek to help artists to:
 reach new audiences 
 engage with existing networks in an innovative way 
 test a new product
 get a better understanding of their audience and clients
 generate sales

As a not-for-profit organization that provides English-language support services to help artists, entrepreneurs and job seekers succeed in Quebec, we encourage people of diverse backgrounds (such as people of colour, aboriginal people, persons living with disabilities, members of the LGBTQAI+ communities, and other cultural communities) to apply and take this opportunity to highlight diversity in their application.
