  4. Current CV

  5. Self addressed stamped envelope for return of materials

Proposals must include a diagram/installation plan of the project in the LAB space. A map of the Gallery is available on the website. Check your budget carefully; make sure you have included (and researched costs for) all elements of the project, including your travel and shipping, technicians, special equipment rentals (ie: video projectors, computers, DVD players, Ipod etc) and materials. Artists will receive project assistance of up to $2,000, as well as CARFAC exhibition fees.
