Call for Art Rooms: Canzine Toronto


Broken Pencil is looking for artists who are interested in creating interactive installations in rooms during Canzine. During past Canzines, artists have turned rooms into forests, filled them with musicians, conducted zine funerals and given lessons in crocheting breasts and testicles. This year Broken Pencil will continue the tradition and are currently looking for artists who would like to rent a room from which they can entertain the masses and sell their wares.

Interested parties should send a pitch detailing their plans to Broken Pencil editor, Alison Lang at with “Canzine Art Room Proposal” as the subject line.

Art rooms are $75. You get a whole room to display your work, create a spectacle and to sell your creations.

Deadline for proposals: August 25, 2014
