Calling all Visual Artists, Performers and Musicians!

The City of Burnaby will showcase live performers in outdoor settings, as part of a series of arts-based initiatives planned for summer 2021.

Emerging and established performers are encouraged to apply to the Burnaby Festivals Office to perform at events like Canada Day, Sounds Like Summer pop-up music concerts, neighbourhood-based live programming, and Burnaby Pride, as provincial health guidelines allow.

Applicants should send an email to celebrate@burnaby.ca with the subject line “Call for Artists 2021.” Email only, no phone calls please. Deadline to apply is Friday, May 7, 2021.

The City of Burnaby encourages Burnaby-based performers and members of the LGBTQIA2S+and BIPOC communities to apply.

Artists should include the following information in their email application:

  1. If you are a Burnaby resident
  2. If you identify as a member of the BIPOC and/or LGBTQ community
  3. Information about your performance/Area of Expertise and provide a link to a sample of your content. (i.e. a link to your web-page or YouTube video)
  4. The length(s) of performance options (20-60 minutes; 1-1.5 hours)

To ensure the safety of artists and members of the public, social distancing and safety protocols will be adhered to at all times.
