Call for Hold Fast Pop-Ups

Do you have an art project you would like to present during HOLD FAST Contemporary Arts Festival? A performance to realize? A short film you would like to screen? A studio to welcome visitors? A maker’s event you would like to host? An exhibition you would like to show? Or some other art happening we have yet to mention?

Apply to be a HOLD FAST Pop-Up, and we will share your projects with our community and include you in our festival promotions. It’s a great way to get involved and reach a larger network through Eastern Edge!

Deadline: July 2nd

Mural Opportunity 

Calling all BIPOC visual artists! In partnership with the newly forming BIPOC Creators Collective, Eastern Edge Gallery would like to commission a visual artist or artist duo to create a public mural that visualizes anti-racism practices in Newfoundland & Labrador. The mural will be outside of Eastern Edge, located at 72 Harbour Drive, and will be unveiled during the HOLD FAST Arts Festival in late August. Possible themes include the importance of anti-racism work, sharing BIPOC stories and lifting BIPOC voices, and promoting diversity, inclusion, and respect in our communities.

Deadline: June 25th


Dates: Aug 25th-28th 2021

Holdfast is back, delivering unprecedented art in unprecedented times! Eastern Edge seeks local and Atlantic artists to present their work as part of HOLD FAST Contemporary Arts Festival. HOLD FAST is a celebration of contemporary art held in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, a festival dedicated to immersive contemporary art and is the longest-running in the province.
