Design Residency *NEW*

If you are a recent design graduate (interior, architectural, industrial, or other) and wish to develop an autonomous body of work, Harbourfront Centre’s new Design Residency is an ideal opportunity.

Harbourfront Centre has helped establish the professional careers of key Canadian designer/makers in Textiles, Glass, Ceramics, and Metal.

Design has the ability to transform and enhance our lives and give form to ideas. Harbourfront Centre is dedicated to fostering user-centered design fueled by invention and ingenuity.

Participants will have access to a creative facility outfitted with computers & design software, a 3D printer, laser cutter, and other prototyping/model-making and production equipment. You will have the prospect of collaborative engagement with artists, designers and makers working in other disciplines. As well, you will have the benefit of advice and evaluation from our highly respected Design Advisory:

We are seeking exciting proposals from emerging designers (within 5 years of graduating) who wish to contribute to the dynamic atmosphere at Harbourfront Centre. We hope this project will expand the conversation between craft and design, and will create value for the cultural community of Canada.

Applications are due on Friday, March 10, 2017 @ 5pm Toronto local time.

To apply, please review the Eligibility Requirements and Criteria, as well as the Submission Guidelines.
