We checked it out.  Here is the deal:

The City of Burlington is one of four municipalities in Halton working with Halton Region Heritage Services to commission a multidisciplinary artist, artist team or artist collective to lead an interactive cultural activity for Culture Days. Artists, artist teams, and collectives can submit their proposal to lead a participatory program, project or workshop. Proposals may include:

    interactive art projects,

    hands-on workshops, and/or

    interactive performances.

The project should allow for audience participation, take place between Sept. 20 and Oct. 13, and be offered in each of the four regional municipalities:

Halton’s four municipalities.

Burlington

Halton Hills

Milton and

Oakville

The deadline for online submissions is 4 p.m. on July 31.

For more information, visit the Halton Hills Call for Artists website.

The project should:

    include a community-based activity in each of the four municipalities to connect the Halton Region.

    be clearly tied to Culture Days, celebrate Halton Region’s 50th anniversary and create a sense of unity and collaboration within the community.

    take place indoors.

    be engaging and offer a platform for individuals to express themselves and contribute to a larger dialogue about the theme of home and belonging.

    allow attendees to participate in the activity and be free to attend.

    be designed as a drop-in for large group participation.

The commission for the project is $6,000. This amount includes $2,000 for material costs.

Culture Days is an annual celebration of arts, culture and creativity that increases community access, provides hands-on participation and highlights the importance of arts and culture in our communities. Every year, free arts and cultural events are offered as part of the celebration, encouraging participants to create, share and celebrate arts and culture. Halton’s four municipalities have partnered with Halton Region Heritage Services to help celebrate the Region’s 50th anniversary during the 2024 Culture Days festival.
