2008 Junction Arts Festival 'Centennial Edition'

Toronto, ON, May 15, 2008 - The 2008 Junction Arts Festival 'Centennial Edition', set for September 3 to 7, is sending out a "Call to Artists".

Applications are currently being accepted for the following categories: Juried Visual Art Exhibit; Street Performing Artists; Art Installations; KIDZone/Junction Community Stage; Writers and Readings and Music (all genres). The deadline is May 30, 2008.

In 2008 the Junction is celebrating its 100th anniversary of becoming the City of West Toronto in 1908. Celebrations are being planned all year, but none as big as the annual Junction Arts Festival.

Our vision is to program the artistic line-up around the 2008 festival theme - Historic Mind / Modern Eye. At a time when we are celebrating the Junction's past, with 2007's record breaking attendance (200,000) and ground breaking artistic expression, we do so with one eye on the present and one on the future. The interpretations, performances, stories, hopes and dreams presented will transform this theme into reality and define who we are; The Junction.
