NATIONWIDE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FROM CANADIAN MAD, DEAF & DISABILITY-IDENTIFIED ARTISTS
The deadline for the call for applications for the “Flourishing” project has been extended until March 31st.
Details about the call can be found here: http://tangledarts.org/flourishing-application/
Selected artists will be asked to contribute artistic work exploring what it means to “flourish”.
Tangled Arts is available to assist people to complete the application process. Interested artists should share: where they are in their career, what is their creative practice and how this collaboration might support their practice at this time. Please note the art itself does not need to be submitted at this time.
Seven artists from across Canada will be selected and each will receive a $7,000 commissioning fee.
This series is a part of a larger multi-party collaboration entitled “Human Flourishing in Worlds of Disability, Frailty and Suffering”; bringing together partners from education, research and arts sectors, led by the Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL). Tangled Art + Disability will open the exhibition Flourishing at Tangled Art Gallery in Toronto this coming fall of 2018. The Centre for Inclusion and Citizenship is a project partner. You can learn more about the project here https://cic.arts.ubc.ca/promoting-human-flourishing-in-the-context-of-medical-assistance-in-dying-2017-2018/
Please help us spread the word. It would be great to have artists with intellectual disabilities represented in this project.

Niall & Marcus Talk About Sh!t Niall Likes
JOIN NIALL MCNEIL, MARCUS YOUSSEF, AND FRIENDS FOR AN EVENING OF GOOD TIMES TALKING ABOUT SH!T NIALL LIKES.
Presented by New Westminster Arts Services
Created and performed by Niall McNeil and Marcus Youssef, directed by Chelsea Haberlin. Music by Veda Hille. Special guests TBA. In Development.
Produced by Neworld Theatre, created with the support of the Boca Del Lupo artist residency program.
Niall McNeil likes to talk and Marcus Youssef is one of his favorite people to talk to. They live around the corner from each other and have known each other since Niall was 18 years old. Niall’s got an opinion about pretty much everything, and he’s funny, too. Niall and Marcus talk about his friends, writing, music, photographs and videos, acting, the grocery store Niall works at, his homemade CSI videos, romance, Beauty and the Beast – all the sh!t Niall likes. It’s a conversation that changes every time they have it. It also questions who in our culture we allow to speak, and who we expect to listen.
Niall is a professional actor and Marcus is a well-known Canadian playwright. Over the last 10 years they have devised a way to write together and, working with musician Veda Hille, written two big shows: Peter Panties (PuSh Festival) and King Arthur’s Night (Luminato, National Arts Centre, PuSh Festival). These groundbreaking productions put the vision of a neurodiverse artist at the centre of their creation, offering audiences a perspective on iconic stories unlike any they have ever seen.
