ARTISTIC VISION: Mayworks Festival is a multi-disciplinary arts festival that celebrates cultural production working class culture. We seek to showcase high calibre art by artists at all stages in their careers that are politically and socially engaged with labour realities.  Mayworks Festival is especially committed to providing a platform to support the underrepresented labor of Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, migrants, women, queer-identified people, people of color, and youth.

MANDATE: Though Mayworks Festival is fully committed to paying artists’ fees, we are not a funding body. We work in partnership with unions and co-presenters to present events that fit our mandate.

TIMELINE: Submissions are due no later than October 15, 2014. Proposals selected will be notified by email by December 2015. The festival dates (TBD) will be in early May 2015.
