As an artist-run centre, Third Space takes direction from its members. Members can sit on committees and be involved in a variety of aspects of running the organization: designing posters, brochures, websites and catalogues; installing and striking visual arts exhibitions; researching and writing grants; seeking sponsorships; building networks and connections with other artists and centres across the country; fundraising, volunteer coordination and much, much more.
Third Space is happy to provide opportunities for members to exhibit, and present projects in our new space. These projects may include but are not limited to: screenings, performances, new media works, exhibits, talks, and other initiatives.
This programming space, located in the Third Space office, allows us to support and encourage artistic production and presentation within our membership. Any Third Space member has the opportunity to use this space and receive non-monetary support from the Membership Committee to present their work.
Space is limited and priority will be given to work that aligns itself with Third Space’s mandate:
- To present work that is exploratory, challenging and critical in nature.
- To present work that questions and confronts social and political agendas.
- To present work that may not be commercially viable.
- To provide a standard of excellence.
- To encourage exploratory and hybrid curatorial practices.
- To develop creative partnerships and collaborations.
- To be treated in a fair and professional manner.
- To be an open, inviting and inclusive space; everyone is welcome.
- To ensure a variety of educational and community-sensitive programming.
