Description

Scarborough Arts is looking for volunteers with interest and
enthusiasm for public art installations to assist with the
Scarborough Sign Project’s 2019 season.

 

ABOUT SCARBOROUGH ARTS
Scarborough Arts, a non-profit charitable organization, is the
only arts organization of its kind specifically serving the
Scarborough community. Through innovative arts and
culture programs for citizens of all ages, we bring arts to the
community and community to the arts.


ABOUT THE SCARBOROUGH SIGN PROJECT
The Scarborough Sign is a community-developed public art
installation that showcases and brings together
Scarborough’s many artistic communities and
neighbourhoods. 
The large-scale SCARBOROUGH sign (36’ wide x 5’ tall) will
travel to different neighbourhoods across north and central
Scarborough. At each stop, The Scarborough Sign will
display community arts projects by local artists, collectives,
and residents. The Sign will also engage audiences in multi-
disciplinary arts events, accessible workshops, and site-
specific arts activities involving various art forms. All
activities are free and open to the public.

 

VOLUNTEER TASKS
● Refurbishing and refreshing the sign after its winter in
storage
● Maintaining the sign throughout the season
● Disassembling and storing the sign at the end of its run

 

WHY VOLUNTEER?
● Immerse yourself in Scarborough’s rich creative culture
● Learn about the logistics and operations of public art
installations
● Reinvigorate underused public spaces in our community
