With lead partnership by the Artists’ Health Alliance, TAIS is very excited to announce our collaboration on the project “Animating Artists’ Health” – a production intensive seeking 8 jury-selected emerging animators to create original ONE MINUTE-long animated films about artists’ health

Deadline: October 22 – before 5pm

The intensive will take place from December 7, 2018 through February 1, 2019 in TAIS studios, with mentorship by noted media artist b.h. Yael, whose latest film “Lessons for Polygamists” premiered at the Images Film Festival in 2017.

Each artist involved in the intensive will receive a $1000 honorarium, a one-year TAIS Studio Membership, and have the opportunity to publicly screen their work, both with TAIS and the Aga Khan Museum Performance Theatre. This program is generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
