Applications are now open for the Creative Catalyst stream as part of the Left of Centre program – a 2 year incubator for emerging Black artists. The Creative Catalyst stream pairs a dedicated cohort of 24 emerging Black artists with a group of 8 arts-based consultants to receive consulting services, support, and mentorship over the course of 7 months.

This stream provides consulting in 7 areas:
The Creative Catalyst stream is application-based, and best suited towards emerging artists who have made a commitment towards establishing their artistic careers, are currently working on new work or building on existing work, and looking to regularly engage an artistic consultant.
